These are very moist, and so far I haven't found anyone who doesn't love them!

These are a bit "cakey" for me - here is how I modified them to be PERFECT - and people at work obsess over them! I put in only 3 eggs, then instead of 15 oz of pumpkin, I put in a 30 oz can of pumpkin pie mix (I use Libby's). I then add an additional teaspoon of pumpkin pie seasoning to the flour mix, in addition to the cinnamon. I've got my baking time down to 27 minutes in my oven, which is just the point where the toothpick comes out clean for the first time. Then for the frosting, I add 8oz cream cheese, and double the rest of the frosting ingredients. PERFECT!

Ready for a wow-factor twist on this? I used previous suggestions to make this more of a bar-cookie consistency and added a bag of semi-sweet chocolate morsels at the last minute before popping into the oven. Simply awesome. I can see white chocolate chips, butterscotch, etc... let the sky be the limit. OH, AND, I cut sugar down to 3/4 cup and oil down to 2/3 cup and we didn't miss it a bit... why add calories/fat when you don't really need it? ENJOY THIS EASY AND YUMMY FALL RECIPE!

After reading the other reviews, I decided to try for a more bar-like result for today's picnic. I cut out one egg and ½'ed the baking powder and baking soda. I also added ½ tsp. of cloves and ½ tsp. of nutmeg. I thought they turned out great!! VERY moist, and exactly like I wanted. For the frosting, I used 8 oz of cream cheese and 3 cups of powdered sugar, which made about ½ cup more than I needed. A GREAT recipe!
