MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2011

Very good, and easy to make. I did tweak the recipe a little: added 1 tblsp oil, used 2 1/3 cup white & 1 cup whole wheat flour, added about 1/4 tsp extra cinnamon. Also used 1 cup sugar & 1 cup Splenda because my husband is diabetic. He loved it - I didn't tell him it was low fat & low sugar.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 14, 2010

I made a 1/2 batch for my family of 2. It turned out nice, but was rather dense; don't know if that is due to living at 5400 ft in elevation (but I did leave out some leaven and added extra flour to compensate for the elevation). Also, I used fresh pumpkin puree, walnuts, homemade applesauce, and 1 real egg (for a 1/2 batch). I mixed by hand with a fork too. This recipe is worth the time it takes to make.
