This cake is pretty good. I added some cinnamon and shredded apples to the batter. Also I didnt add a cup of brown sugar, I only added 1/2 cup. I am not too fond of overly sweet stuff. I would make this againn.

I made this yesterday for my family and we loved it. I'm making another today for my Daddy's 79th birthday. I didn't have apple cider so I used unsweetened apple juice instead. Also,I always freeze fresh pumpkin in the fall so I used fresh instead of canned pumpkin. I used cinnamon, ginger,& nutmeg in place of pumpkin pie spice. The only thing I will change in making this cake a second time is to cut back to 3/4 cup of brown sugar. It won't be missed.
Anyone who has ever made an old fashioned hot-water chocolate pudding cake this is same principle. Simple and Good :)

I cannot imagine using 1 cup of brown sugar in apple cider. I'm absolutely going to try this but I'll make my own cider pudding.

This turned out a little differently than I expected. I wouldn't use the term "pudding" in the title. The pumpkin cake part was really good, but the apple was like apple pie filling, very sticky and VERY sweet. I ended up scraping most of the apple stuff off the bottom and serving it with some cool whip to cut the sweetness.
