I tried this recipe tonight. It was yummy! Definitely baking it again. Used 1/4 cup of almond milk with the cream cheese. It was moist and soft. The cooking time was 48 minutes not 18-20. Every oven is different. Is low calories and sugar free. Thank you for sharing.

Complete fail! All the ingredients I purchased and took time to make. Recipe couldn’t hardly follow, things mentioned in ingredients weren’t in description, pan size I think is wrong, because below in comments you are talking about a 9x9; not what you say above in recipe. Also, in comments you mention no eggs; above mention 4! This is flavorless and I unfortunately have to toss.

Sorry you had so many problems. Unfortunately, a blog update messed up many of our recipes and we are feverishly working to update the ingredient lists, points and nutritional info. We are using all of your feedback to get it right. Thank you.

I made this and it was gooey in the middle plus it tasted like flour. So much flour... I ended up tossing the entire thing

I tried this recipe tonight. The only change I made, was I used light whipped cream cheese. I thought it was a good recipe to add to my collection of low calorie desserts. It is not as good as a pumpkin cake with real brown sugar, and cream cheese icing with powdered sugar, but it had substance to it and was tasty. It was also low in calories. I figured it to be about 103 calories for 1/6 of the whole cake. Thank you for this. I will bake it again, for sure!
