This was an easy recipe. I substituted sour cream for the oil, and chopped walnuts for the topping. (nothing goes with pumpkin like walnuts!)

I tried the recipe it was easy to make, the smell was fantastic, but had very little taste. Turned out to be a disappointment.

Always trying new ideas for pumpkin. I just cut back on sugar and used unsweetened apple sauce for oil. Will make again, thanks
