These are delicious, moist cake squares that are simple to make. I made them 3-4 times this holiday season and received many compliments. My husband prefered them without the chocolate chips. Adapted from Martha's new Everyday Food magazine.

Delicious! They reminded me of pumpkin bread, but in squares, but when I compared recipes these actually have less sugar. I think these will be replacing my pumpkin bread from now on!

These are extremely moist and delicious! I first made them last fall when I saw the recipe on Martha Stewart's TV Show. My husband LOVES these! I've made them many times.

I actually found another version of this recipe first, and made that - but I loved it so much I wanted to post a review. The ingredients are the same, but the amounts of several are different. However, I liked it so much that I wanted to post a review. It's delicious, with the pumpkin, spice, and chocolate. It's a great snack cake that is not too sweet.<br/>I will be trying this version. Thanks for posting.
