This is a Libby's recipe and is it good! Really impressive when it is cut and the streusel filling peeks through. Great for the holidays.

This recipe is delicious and very very moist. I removed my cake from the oven after one hour of baking and let it cool for 30 minutes in the pan. I then inverted it to a wire rack and let it set until completely cooled. I used the glaze on top and it turned out perfectly. I think the reason a person might have the cake turn out dry is only because they left the cake to cool in the oven (I'm assuming that is what the recipe meant or it was a typo). Many applauses for the cake! Thank you Aroostook for the delicious recipe! :)
What a super recipe! I prefer a little more spice so I added extra cinnamon and allspice to the cake AND the filling. I used the suggestion from another reviewer and made a glaze using reduced apple cider and just a little powdered sugar, which turned out super! The second time I made it I added a cup of raisins as well. My husband requested I make this for Thanksgiving!
I have to withhold stars, because the way mine turned out I'd have to give this recipe 4 stars. But I made a substitution; I subbed applesauce for half that butter. For the most part, it was still moist, but the outer 1/2 inch was too dry. I took it out of the oven at 55 minutes, and I think it was overbaked. The flavor is good; not too heavy on pumpkin. I don't really care for allspice but I made as directed and though you can really smell it, the taste is not too strong on spice. I will make it again!
