So I usually make cookies instead of cakes, but I wanted to try these. I started out with the original recipe, but when I started beating the butter, it looked wrong with what the description said it should look like so I started reading the comments. By then it's my own fault for how things don't go right, but I feel like I should still say: even with only half-way following the recipe, and trying to win ground by altering it by following other people's comments, these aren't THAT bad, and maybe the original recipe would have been good to follow with just the normal amount of tinkering. I mean, as far as the comments go, I think doubling the spices took things a little too far. I also think that doubling the pumpkin made them way too moist, to the point where they're not still doughy in the middle but they're kinda almost like that (you know?) and baking them for another couple of minutes doesn't quite make things right. So if you're going to alter the recipe, you might not want to do things quite so drastically. Take the comments with a grain of salt.
