Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together sugar, eggs, pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt and milk. Line a 9 by 13-inch pan with wax paper and pour the mixture in. Sprinkle the dry cake mix on top, then sprinkle the nuts. Pour melted butter evenly over the cake mix and nuts. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes.

Cool (very important). Flip over and remove from pan. Remove the wax paper. Top with whipped cream (which would dissolve if the cake wasn't cooled first).
