While I will admit that this recipe isn't my taste I give this five stars. Just like the other reviewers I also agree that this is not a brownie and is, in fact, a cake. The flavoring was wonderful and it was a nice texture. I couldn't taste much pumpkin but I'm not sure how much pumpkin you should taste in pumpkin cake as I've never had it before. I didn't have pumpkin spice on hand so I used just under 1/2 tsp cloves and nutmeg, just under 1/4 tsp mace and allspice, 1/2 tsp ginger, and an extra tsp of cinnamon. Also, instead of the 2 cups of sugar I used 1 1/2 c. sugar and 1/2 packed brown sugar in hopes of giving the cake a more full flavor. I also experimented a bit by adding a rounded 1/2 c. bittersweet chocolate chips to half of the cake (so I could see how it tastes with and without) and I found it added a bit of a twist to it but it neither enhanced the flavor or detracted from it. Since I didn't have a 10x14 pan I used a 9x13 glass pan and baked it for thirty minutes, rotating it halfway through. I also did not use your frosting - I just dusted some powdered sugar and I thought it was alright that way. All around a nice recipe; despite it not being what I would go for I'll most likely make this again sometime. :)
