My daughter Kit & I made this cake for her Girl Scout group. We found it on a web site for Egyptian foods. It's flavorful, not too heavy on the pumpkin taste and is great as a cake with icing drizzled on it or as a snack. All the Girl Scouts agreed they liked this cake to use for their World Thinking Day to represent Egypt
