    Loved this recipe!! I used brown sugar instead of white, added about 1/8 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. Instead of a yellow cake, I used a butter cake...IT WAS TO DIE FOR!!! Made several for a bake sale...didn't have any left over!!  -  25 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I made this using sweetened evaporated milk and omitted the sugar.I also added all spice and three eggs. I was fabluous. I will make this again and again. Oh the last time I added 1/2 pkg chocolate chips, and the kids loved it. Thanks again.  -  13 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
