1 3/4 cups

Wonderful pumpkin recipe. I made 12 big muffins and used muffin liners instead of making the loaf. I baked for 25 minutes and they were perfect. I like to freeze them and then thaw one out at a time so I can bring them to work for lunch. I didn't add the extra nuts on top or put the glaze on them either and I didn't even miss it. Taste best when heated.
Disappointing! Dry, too much salt, not sweet enough, and could use some cinnamon in the batter. This recipe is more like a quickbread than a cake. I won't bake it again!
This was really good. It was easy to make, and we really enjoyed it. I've made it a couple of times now, and one of them I substituted the chocolate chips with raisins. Very yummy that way too. Made the house smell wonderful!
Wow! My house smelled great while I was baking this! I substituted raisins for the chocolate chips. This makes a big, heavy, delicious loaf of bread. Thanks, Marsha!
My husband was very excited about this cake, until I told him it had pumpkin in it. Then his face fell. I wasn't looking forward to his reaction to the cake as I'd already suffered criticism over dinner, but when he tasted it he just went crazy. It was like he couldn't stop eating it. We finished over half the loaf that night. It's the best cake I've ever tasted, and I wouldn't change a thing. Oh wait, I did change a couple of things. I used brown sugar instead of white, and left out the chocolate chips and walnuts, because I wanted a more gingerbread-like flavour. I also added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 2 tsp baking powder as I didn't have any baking soda. I think next time I may add raisins in place of the chocolate chips and walnuts. I think they'd go well with the taste.
Giving this only four stars because the spice amounts are wrong. Should be 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. ground ginger, and 1/4 tsp. ground cloves. My mother made this for years, recipe came from a pumpkin company. With the correct spice mix, this is a 5 star recipe.
Good except to much nutmeg. We used raisings instead of choc chips also. Will make again with less nutmeg, & salt. Would add a little more cinnamon.
I love this recipe! I added a bit more nuts and left out the chocolate chips. The glaze is just fantastic!
