It wasn't clear in the directions if the water that the raisins and pumpkin was boiled in was poured off or added to the mix. I thought all that water would be too much liquid to add to the cake mix so I poured it off and it turned out very dry and lumpy.

Very good! The only thing I would suggest is if there's a version that uses real eggs and real sugar - I tried to sweeten to taste using brown sugar instead of artificial sweetener (blech!) and the cake came out somewhat flat, but very rich. (3/4 c. brown sugar, if anyone else wants to try.) Worth experimenting with.
