I substituted the eggs with 1 ripe Banana and used oatmilk to make this cake vegan, and it was absolutely gorgeous. I will definitely make it again and again in the pumpkin season. A really good choice to use my last pumpkin of 2017 [email protected], I know it is years late, but you can just skip that small amount of flaxseed. You could also use chia-seeds instead if you have those at home.

Lots of pumpkin flavor and the cake came out very pretty looking. But the icing soaked into the cake after just one day. This was a very dense cake. Not so bad but I have other favorites.

was interested until I got to the flaxseed/ didn't want to buy just to use for this recipe/ could it be replaced with something else?
