"This is a delicious moist cake. The aroma while it is baking is absolutely enticing. The only change I made to this recipe was to use homemade cinnamon cream cheese frosting. Have copies of the recipe on hand as you will be asked for them. Definitely a keeper."

"Great recipe. I have made it several times for different events with requests for the recipe every time. The only changes I have made are to leave out the extra sugar in the cake and to add cinnamon to the icing."

"Add a few nuts, leave out the sugar bake in loaf pans and it makes a delicious pumpkin bread! This sort of cake is always too sweet to me with the frosting and being diabetic I don't need the added sugar."

"I make pumpkin muffins all the time, but wanted something a bit more like a dessert. This is it! Very easy to make and even more easy to eat - this cake disappeared extremely fast. I'm already making my second batch!"
