The credit for this recipe goes to my sister Carmen V. who has finally had several of her recipes published in the CIBC Run for the Cure Cookbook.
This is a very easy recipe to follow and is so yummy, and will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.
I am sure this will become a family favorite for many generations to come.
I usually make this in a bunt pan but you can use what ever you comfortable with.
Enjoy and WTG Carmen!!!

how many pans will this fill?

G_Cakes Says... 2009-12-12 11:05:17

I find that the recipe will fill one large bundt pan or two smaller ones.

Depending on size of pan you can make 12-18 large cupcakes, or 24 regular ones...

Can I use real pumpkin instead?

Wow, just made this cake and this is exactly what I was looking for. It smells great, has great texture and is nice and moist. Once I read it was a Run For the Cure Recipe I knew it would be great. I will definately pass this recipe around and make it again. I doubled the recipe and it fit into a 11X15 pan.

Does anyone know if this is dense enough to stack?
