A truly yummy cake. I also used a bundt pan and it turned out great. The cooking time was less than indicated here, but I think that's because the bundt pan is the heavy Analon and it seems to cook quicker than other bundt pans I've used. The texture is a heavy, dense cake with lots of moisture and flavor. I did leave out the raisins and nuts since no one in my family cares for those in our food. That's the only change I made and it turned out great. Definitely a keeper.
The flavor if this cake was very good and pumpkiny. Not as moist as I would have hoped and expected, but the flavor made up to it. Instead of raisins, I added craisins (sweetened dried cranberries). It was very yummy. Thanks!
In order to make it a little healthier, I substituted apple sauce for most of the vegetable oil (still included 1 tbs of oil). I used sweetened apple sauce , so I cut down the sugar to 1.5 cups. I also used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose flour. It turned out beautifully. We couldn't even wait for it to cool before we sampled it.
