I started by dumping the full can of pure pumpkin puree into a large mixing bowl.

Then I added the eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt to the bowl with the pumpkin.

Using a large spatula, I stirred the ingredients until they were combined and no lumps remained.

Now I poured in the almond milk.  I try to avoid dairy whenever possible and that is why I used almond milk.  

You can use regular milk if you prefer or even evaporated milk.

I used the spatula again to stir in the milk until it was smooth.

Once blended, I carefully poured the pumpkin mixture into a 9 x 13″ baking pan that had been sprayed with cooking spray.

I put the pan into a preheated 425F oven for 20 minutes.  When I removed the pan I lowered the oven temperature to 350F.  I allowed the pumpkin to cool for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes I sprinkled the cake mix on top followed by the melted margarine and maple syrup.  I finished by sprinkling a layer of pecan pieces on the top.

Now I returned it to the oven at 350F to cook for 30-35 minutes.  I cooked it until it was golden brown around the edges.

I allowed the Pumpkin Surprise to cool in the pan before slicing and serving it.  Enjoy!
