    All the water from the pumpkin results in a very moist cake. Delicious.

    It was very delicious. I kept to 2 cups of powder sugar for the frosting, My family doesn’t like it too sweet and it was perfect. Definitely will make it again, maybe as cupcakes to take to a picnic or party.

    Not sure yet. The cake was nowhere near baked at 30 minutes. I took it out at 45 minutes - it seemed to pass the toothpick test, but the cake fell in the middle section. It smells great and I hope it tastes as food as to smells. . Any suggestions? Also--when the directions say to beat the pumpkin, oil, egg, mixture until it is "light n fluffy" ---- that combination never became "fluffy" although it did lighten up. How much time do you beat that combination. An approximate time would help in a recipe-especially when one has never made the recipe before. I have made the cake several times since the first episode——and it is fantastic. I think I just needed to beat the liquid mixture more on high speed to get the right “fluffiness” . Everyone complements me on this cake. Supermoist, flavorful and the cream cheese icing is refreshingly light and not overwhelming.

    I just finished this cake and it came out perfect, super moist and perfectly spiced. The frosting compliments the cake. My husband is on his third piece in 30 minutes. Wish I could eat it like that, lol.
