Grease and flour a 13x9-inch baking pan. Preheat oven to 350 F.
Prepare the batter in a medium bowl by combining the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, pumpkin, vanilla, and oil until well blended, scraping the bowl a few times.
Stir in the dry ingredients into the wet just until blended.
Spread batter into prepared baking pan.

Using a pastry blender, or forks, cut in the butter until crumbly and mix in the pecans.
