WOWEE! This was so soft and spicy and yummy! It also made the house smell great! In place of regular sugar, I used 1/2 cup Splenda Granular plus 2T Splenda brown sugar blend which keeps it from having an aftertaste. I used canned pumpkin and 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour plus 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. This still rose nicely and wasn't heavy at all. Instead of powdered sugar, I just spread the glaze over the top of the whole thing. I made the glaze with 1 1/2T Splenda brown sugar blend, 1/2T cornstarch, 1/2 cup fresh OJ and 1/2tsp fresh lemon juice. It had a very nice orange flavor. I also served this with a strawberry/peach fruit compote I made and Cool whip lite. It felt like the Holidays! Just WONDERFUL! Freddy Cat approves! Made for the Please Review game.
