I'm going to divulge the secret to making this to perfection... ready??? Follow this recipe exactly and DO NOT CHANGE A THING! It is fantastic and super easy too. I did not add any frosting and feel there is no need for it; the cake was moist and delicious without being overly sweet. Also, by using the pumpkin puree you are really getting quite a bit of fiber in your dessert. Great tasting AND somewhat good for you too. This is my new favorite cake. Thanks to doxie1 for submitting this one! Excellent!!!

This is delicious. I baked it in a bundt pan and added 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice and one teaspoon of good quality cinnamon, instead of the ginger/cinnamon mix. Next time I will also add raisins and maybe a few less walnuts. I also added only 2/3 cup of oil and will probably only add no more than 1/2 cup the next time I make it. Pumpkin makes the cake very moist so it definitely doesn't need so much oil. Delicious!

What a great spice cake recipe. I made it just as directed, only added a couple more shakes of cinnamon and a couple shakes of nutmeg. It could be a little spicier, but I made for guests so I think it's perfect for the occasion. Made in a bundt pan, baked for about 45 minutes. Frosted with homemade cream cheese icing...pulled out a little frosting and put green food coloring in it. Put orange food coloring in the rest of the icing, then spread the orange icing all over the cake. Put an edible ice-cream cup (that kids eat ice-cream out of) in the hole of the bundt cake and frosted that green. Piped some green stripes down the side and 'voila!!!! Made a literal pumpkin cake that looks like one too!!! Had just enough batter left over to make a couple of mini-loaves and that's what I just ate...it is awesome. I saw where some reviewers messed with the amount of oil but I think it's perfect!!!
