pumpkin upside-downcake with spiced cream

3 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
3 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 ounce evaporated milk
1 (18.25 ounce) box yellow cake mix
1 cup toasted chopped pecans
4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
Spiced Cream (recipe below)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 13-inch pan with wax paper and set aside.

In a large bowl beat the eggs until slightly thickened and lemon colored. Add the sugars, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Mix well, then gently stir in the evaporated milk. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and sprinkle the cake mix over the top. Sprinkle with the pecans and pour the butter evenly over the entire pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the cake layer comes clean with a wooden pick and bounces back when gently pressed. Cool thoroughly. Remove from the pan and place on a serving dish.

Serve with the Spiced Cream on the side, or frost with chilled Spiced Cream.

Spiced Cream
1 cup heavy cream
2 tsp all spice

Whip the cream until light and fluffy. Fold in the all spice. Chill.
