    Birgit 2's Note:

    Great alternative to Pumpkin Pie! Even people that don't care for pumpkin (like myself :) ) love this cake. I usually use homemade pumpkin puree but I'm sure canned pumpkin will work just as well. You may want to use less sugar, though. This cake can easily made one or two days in advance; it's very moist.

      This was good but I did change it up a bit. I used one cup sugar and one cup splenda. Instead of all the oil I used one cup of applesauce and 1/2 cup of canola oil. I also used one cup white flour and one cup of wheat. I didn't add the pecans or the coconut and didn't add the icing. We all enjoyed this. We ghouth it could use a bit more cinnamon though. I cooked it in a bundt pan for 45 minutes.

      Wow! This cake is so moist! I live in Japan and brought this cake to a Halloween Party for my high school students. It was a big success! I didn't peel the pumpkin, left it on for color and added nutrients, maybe the skin is thinner in Japan? It's delicious!

      This is a great recipe for using fresh pumpkin. The taste is excellent and the cake is very moist. I brought the cake to work with me and the patients were thrilled. I baked it in a bundt 10-cup pan.
