I may have done something wrong somewhere, but I don't think so. It seems a little wrong to me and I think it's the recipe.
The texture of the top is thinner than I imagined. It's almost like a pudding on top of a heavy cake. I had imagined more of a cheese cake or at least pumkin pie.
I used all 4 cups of sugar because it seemed like such a runny batter. I have a raging sweet tooth. I mean, I can eat spoons ful of sugar right out of the bowl and enjoy it. So I can't believe I'm writing this, but it's a bit too sweet. And the wang from the cheese is just not there. Pure pumpkiny sweetness. It tastes intense, but makes you feel kind of yucky. After eating a piece of this, I feel like I've just binged out on a whole can of Duncan Hines frosting. Not that I've ever done that . . .
So anyway, I think it's an ok recipe. It just wasn't what I had in mind. I think if you're a good baker you might want to tweak the top part to get it a little thicker. Maybe more cream cheese. And you might want a little less sugar like others have suggested.
