This cake was delicious! I made it in a bundt cake pan, and while I won't be doing that again because I didn't exactly like how the outside crust came out (I think it was the type of bundt cake pan I used), I did love this cake overall.

I made this for my family, we all love pumpkin. It was easy to make, with handy ingredients and my kids loved it. A big hit for us. The kids are already asking me to make it again.

This is a very good cake! I wasn't going to serve it right away so I poked holes in the top of the cake and poured the sauce over it. The sauce went down through the cake and wow, what a moist delicious cake!
