"Good basic cake. But I don't care for oily foods. So I added another 3/4

cup of pumpkin and only a 1/4 cup of butter.. as we all know
everything is better with butter! I also added a tsp of vanilla, 1/4 tsp
nutmeg, dash of ground cloves. If you use a 15x10 pan it's a bar and
might want to check prior to the bake time stated. 9x13 pan is a cake
& will take longer to bake since it's thicker. Remember you should
only take bake times stated as a estimate of time needed. Rule of
thumb... EVERY OVEN IS DIFFERENT....AND TOOTH PICKS NEVER LIE.
Always check it a little earlier then time called for- say 5 to 8 minutes.
And lastly think about what ratio is called for in a recipe before you
start mixing it. You can catch misprints etc. before it's in the oven
and to late to fix if you think about what you're mixing."

"I made this cake last night as my son has been requesting a pumpkin based dessert. I'm not a big fan of pumpkin pie, so decided to try this instead. This turned out fantastic! I followed the recipe exactly. What I like about this cake is that it's not overly sweet. The frosting was easy to make. I didn't have a whole 8oz pack of cream cheese, only about half left over. I made the frosting with that. It turned out great. The frosting was a thin layer due to my shortage of cream cheese, but it was just fine.

I am not a baker, but this was a very easy recipe to follow. I might add pumpkin seeds or sun flower seeds with raisins to it next time."

"I substituted applesauce for the oil and it turned out way too moist. The toothpick came out clean but the bars actually had a gummy texture. I should try the recipe again as the original recipe reads but honestly I don't like any recipe with that much oil. I also tried chocolate chips sprinkled on top of half of the bars (a jelly roll pan makes a lot of bars so I wanted to try them different way). It was a bad idea. The bars did not have that choc chip pumpkin muffin sense at all. I do agree with many others that the recipe was super easy to put together. At least I have something good to add."

"My family REALLY enjoyed this dessert. The cake was so moist and the frosting was delicious! The ONLY change I made was in the cake I deleted the cinnamon and just added 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice. It was ot of this world. GRACIAS for sharing the recipe this will be on the dessert table for Thanksgiving DAY!!"

"I brought them to work and everyone loved them. They are easy to make, they come out very moist. They have a mild spice flavor I think next time I will add a little more spice or some pumpkin pie spice as suggested by previous reviewer. Other wise they are great

Thanks for the recipe"

"Like others had said, I added about a tsp of pumpkin spice to the cake recipe. It turned out very moist and the cream cheese icing was delicious. Not overwhelming and strong like some cream cheese icings can be."

"I made a big mistake when I made these, but they turned out all right. I left out the sugar--yikes! But the day was saved when I made the icing! Very good!"

"These were so moist and delicious! To give them a little more "bite", add a little pumpkin pie spice to the recipe. These won't stay in the pan long!"

"For Halloween, tint icing light green and put in decorator bag. Pipe onto bars in a wiggly line to make 'snake' bars. Use black food gel to dot eyes."
