Using cake mix and pumpkin

I have a Duncan Hines yellow cake mix and some canned pumpkin. Is there a way to combine these two along with possibly other ingredients to make a pumpkin cake? Maybe a pumpkin coffee cake?

Well, you don't know me, but here's the ultimate recipe for you - trust me, you won't be sorry trying this. I just made it this weekend and what a hit it was for such an easy put together dessert!!

Upside Down Pumpkin Cake

1 can pumpkin puree -- (29 ounce)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 pinch salt
1 3/4 cups white sugar
3 eggs
1 can evaporated milk -- (12 fluid ounce)
18 oz. package yellow cake mix with pudding
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup butter -- melted

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

2. In a mixing bowl, blend pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, salt, sugar, eggs and milk. Pour mixture into a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle dry cake mix and nuts over the batter. Pour melted butter over the cake.

3. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for one hour and let cool. The cake will be kind of liquidy at first, but will firm up as it cools.
Top with a dollop of fresh whipped cream & enjoy!
