I loved this cake! The chocolate comes through at the first bite and then a faint pumpkin taste. I was going to frost it with chocolate buttercream but forgot and cut into it! I'm sure the frosting will take it up a notch. Next time I will definitely frost it. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

Cake is very moist. Followed recipe as stated. Bake time 25 to 30 was not enough. Baked for another 11 minutes and appeared to be finished. After it sat, the middle fell in and it was raw. The edges came out great and moist. Any suggestions? Read More

It was yummy! I used 1/2 cup applesauce, 1/2 cup oil, and about a 1/4 cup less sugar (to compensate for the added sugar of the applesauce) and it was perfect. Read More
