"I've become a big fan of pan style cakes, and this pumpkin cake was a big hit with my family. The last time I made it, I thought there was a little too much cream cheese mixture...so I'll cut it down when making it again. But the recipe below has the original amounts as you might want plenty of swirl through the squares."
