I LOVE this cake and can sit and eat it all by myself, but do share it with my husband and friends. Usually we make it at Thankgiving, but would love to make it more often, only would have to give part away so I wouldn't gain so much weight from it. LOL

I have made this recipe since the 1970s when the recipe first came out on the side of an Allbran cereal box. It is a family favorite and has become a tradition. Love it! I do add a little more pumpkin to it just to make it really moist....other than that recipe as is!

a favorite of mine for many years, way before eating bran and fiber were popular. to get more chocolate in every bite I use mini choc chips. I've never had anyone not like this cake.

Recently a member brought this cake to a pot luck. Fantastic flavor. No one flavor dominated just a over all richness, then when you had a bite with the chips the chocolate gave a added contrast in taste and texture.
Being a chocoholic I might add more chips but the cake that was brought had them well distributed.

I have fond memories of this cake from childhood! Very easy to make (I don't think a 3 is accurate!) and great even without frosting
