  3. Whisk until well combined.
  4. Spread evenly in the bottom of the pan.
  5. Sprinkle nuts on top of the pumpkin mixture.
  6. Then sprinkle the dry cake mix evenly over the nuts.
  7. In the microwave, or on top of the stove, melt the butter, then add the milk.
  8. Drizzle the melted butter and milk mixture over the dry cake mix, do your best to cover as much of the dry cake as possible.
  9. Bake the cake for 45 - 55 minutes until the cake starts to turn golden brown.
  10. Cool slightly, if using ice cream; If using cream you will want it to be just a little warm.
