I had to make the cake twice. My cast iron bundt pan was too heavy to flip over quickly and the first cake split. I put that one in the freezer after My husband and I had a piece or two.
Second time it was perfect. It disappeared quickly at the party.. Anyone who loves chocolate will love this cake. I cut up the first cake,(that I put in the freezer), to bring to a Christmas dinner. The kids loved it and thought it was a big brownie. Froze well. It was still moist after being frozen without being soggy. I think the pumpkin gives it great texture that is yummy without the butter and too much sugar. This cake will be going to future pot luck dinners and get togethers..
