Changed it a little. Didn't reserve any cake for crumb top, just mixed eggs with the whole cake and the pumpkin. Love it and make it a lot. Have shared the recipe as it was very popular.

This was absolutely the worst cake I have ever baked. I followed the directions exactly. It had very little flavor. Even my husband wouldn't eat it.

Great cake

I used pure pumpkin, added cinnamon to the batter and extra coconut in the topping. Very good. I love the toasted coconut flavor. I think my butter got too soft though for the topping. Didn't quite work right so I added more coconut.

Very moist, full of great pumpkin pie flavor. Topping didn't turn out crumbly for me but, it was still great. Will make it for Friday night get together for sure. We LOVED it!
