I have had this recipe for a very long time and make it several times a year, and particularly around Thanksgiving. Like all of my recipes, I have "tweaked" it to my taste.

This cake could possibly be considered a "bar cookie" as well, though it does have the consistency of a soft, moist and dense cake.

I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do!

I have this in the oven right now! My house smells wonderful. This is now the second time I have made this. If I were to make nothing else from this website, I would be just fine with this recipe!

Oh you're welcome. My husband has asked me to make this for his office. I have to say I was quite tickled that he even asked me! I am not much of a baker but this recipe is so easy and I love to use fresh pumpkin where I can.
