This recipe is a family favorite. I discovered 20 years ago when we lived in Maine and had a large pie pumpkin patch.
1 pkg spice cake
1/2 c butter, melted
1 c pumpkin
1/2 c sugar
dash of salt
Reserve 2/3 cup dry cake mix.
In large bowl, combine remaining cake mix, butter, and 1 egg; mix well. Pat into greased 13x9x2 inch cake pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 min.
Combine reserved cake mix, pumpkin, sugar, 2 eggs, orange peel. and dash of salt. Beat at medium speed with electric mixer for 1 to 2 min. Pour over partially baked layer. Top with nuts.
Bake at 350 degrees until set, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool; cut into bar refrigerate.
