This is a lovely cake, not too sweet. If you can find tinned pumpkin puree that is fine to use as well.
Turns out really well. It's quite a big cake and keeps very well (if you don't eat it all at once)! I had to substitute some SRF for plain as I didn't have any baking powder and added a tiny bit more carb soda, hoping this would make up for the lack. Also without walnuts but still delicious. - 17 Jun 2014
Turned out like a dream. After reading some reviews concerning the oily quality of the cake I substituted 1 cup of the oil with apple sauce. Still moist and yummy. I also added a dash of pumpkin pie seasoning. There's no need for frosting and/or ice cream. It's heavenly just like it is. - 06 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Delicious and easy recipe. 1/2 the recipe makes a nice 9x9 cake, baked 30 min. Increased the spices a bit and included 1 t pumpkin pie spice. - 24 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
