The cake was totally perfect....moist, not overly sweet, dense and the chocolate swirls was super fudgy. We are only 2 yet finished this cake off in a week. My only problem was the chocolate ganache was too liquidy.... did not stabilize quick enough for my liking.

Is it possible to use sugar substitute in this for those that are diabetic? Thank you.

Hi Carol! We haven't tested this recipe using a sugar substitute, so we can't say for certain. However, if you do decide to try, let us know how it turns out for you!

Is there any way the amount of sugar could be lessened and the cake still have a nice texture? It IS a lot of sugar.

Hi Joan, thanks for your question! The ratio of butter to sugar in the recipe is important. It affects the way the cake rises, as well as the texture of the cake. We'd suggest sticking to the recipe to ensure you get the best cake possible. Happy baking!

This has become my grandsons' favorite, they absolutely love it. The combination of pumpkin and chocolate is delish! It is a showstopper when cut into. After the initial reaction of "wows" and "ahhs" the cake is quickly devoured.

Excellent! The texture was perfect, it was nice and moist plus the two flavors paired so nicely together! It was a huge hit at the party! There was so many requests for the recipe! I think this is a new fall favorite in my family!
