For the praline: In a heavy saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter and whipping cream. Cook and stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Pour into two well-greased 9-inch round cake pans. Sprinkle with pecans and cool

For the cake: In a bowl, beat eggs, sugar and oil. Add pumpkin puree and vanilla. Combine all dry ingredients and add to the pumpkin mixture and beat just until blended. Carefully spoon the batter over the praline mixture.

Bake at 350 F. for 30 to 35 minutes or until done. Cool for 5 minutes, remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
