This turned out pretty good. I used cake flour and increased the total to 2 cups 4 Tbsp assuming the recipe called for all-purpose. I also substituted pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon. I actually made a baseball shaped cake in celebration of the Cardinals World Series victory. Since the pans I used were a semi-circle, the baking time was around 55 minutes. I'll definitely try making this again as a normal layer cake as well as a loaf.

This recipe is so versatile - the first time I made it, I made one loaf and one bundt. The second time, I halved the recipe and made 12 muffins. The third, I made 3 loaves in aluminum pans to take for Thanksgiving. I haven't used the frosting recipe, because I don't like frosting. I typically also add nutmeg, cloves, and ginger. I've been making with fresh pumpkin, but I'm going to try it with some of the hard winter squashes next. Thank you so much!

I found this a great cake...very moist and easy. I did make some changes...I replaced half the oil with unsweetened applesauce, added 1 c. ground raisins , and additional spices ( nutmeg, cloves) turned out wonderful !! Thanks !!!
