I was trying to find a really awesome pumpkin spice cake and had tried two dog recipes before this one, so I am thrilled with this! I did tweak it: used more spice and less sugar, I used half the amount of oil and used unsweetened applesauce for the balance of the oil. The texture is perfect! I still need to tweak the spice/sugar balance a little more. Made this in a small loaf pan and adjusted the baking time.

I baked this cake for my work colleagues and they enjoyed it very much. I baked a second one substituting Splenda Blend (white and brown sugar)for the sugar, 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce for 1/2 of the oil and 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 cup of white flour. I added 1/2 c each of raisins and walnuts. I gave the finished cake a dusting of powdered sugar. I was pleased with the results. It reminded me of a snack cake I use to make as a child. My take on a healthier version.
