I found the pumpkin flavor to be bland. In retrospect I would add a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, and an additional quarter teaspoon of salt to help bring out the flavors. I reduced the amount of sugar by 1/4 cup. In retrospect Iikely would not do that again. It could have been a bit more sweeter.

I cut the sugar subtracting 1/3 of it, and added a 3/4 tsp of pumpkin pie spice mix as well as all the nutmeg and cinnamon as written. Very good recipe. It is quite moist and delicious. I like lots of spice so I added the mix to make it taste more "pumpkin spice latte" which it does.

I made this exactly as stated in the recipe and its absolutely delicious! I am not a nutmeg fan unless its in eggnog so I really didn't know what advise I was going to take after reading some of the reviews so I decided to just do it as written in the recipe. To those reviewers that said too much nutmeg makes it tastes like baking soda my suggestion is replace ur nutmeg with new because I didn't get that at all. The spices are perfect and this is not too much nutmeg. If u found this to be bland I say change all ur spices for new. I had to bake mine for 70 minutes and its perfect!

This was excellent, moist and light and tasty. I used butter instead of oil, as the only oil I have around is olive. Made glaze with 1c powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1tsp cinnamon and a bit of milk to get the right consistency. Otherwise, as written. A big hit, I made it 8 hours ago and it's half gone, with only three people in my house ;)

I went to try this recipe and realized instead of buying pumpkin pulp I had two cans of pumpkin pie filling. I referenced my cookbook that has the exact same recipe as on the back of the pumpkin pulp for pie filling, did some simple match, and found I had to drop the sugar down to 1 3/4 cups and eliminate the cinnamon and cloves from the recipe. The filling has ginger, which isn't in this recipe. I'll know when I cut it how successful I was in making the conversion.It came out perfect using the pumpkin pie filling.
