I have made this cake many, many times. It always comes out fantastic and everyone raves about it and wants the recipe. I have cut down the white sugar to 1 1/3 cup and the vegetable oi to 3/4 cup and it is perfect that way.

So I baked this for a thanksgiving potluck at work and every one raved about it. I didn't actually get to eat it but one of my co-worker's told me that this was the best cake he had had in the past 40 years. I think that says enough. Will be making again!

This is a wonderful recipe - fairly easy to make, and impressive. The best thing is the taste and the compliments you'll get. If you love pumpkin, this is the best recipe!! Sometimes I underfill the cake pans and have some leftover to put in tiny loaf pans without the pecans or whip cream. They taste like cupcakes - I think I'm going to make cupcakes with cream cheese frosting from this recipe next!

My go-to recipe in the fall. I frost the sides of the cake as well....add 1 t. cinnamon to the whipped cream. This cake stores well IN THE FRIDGE-can do day ahead.
