    This recipe has been in my files for over 25 years. I enjoy the caramel sauce over ice cream on top of a warm slice of the ginger cake!

      Wonderful flavor...as Mimi pointed out, just slightly different from the usual pumpkin pie flavors but delicious! And the caramel sauce was wonderful; we served with ice cream. It would also be good with whipped cream if your cake and sauce aren't too hot. Now the reason for the no-star review: I didn't know how to rate this because the crust didn't turn into a crust; it was a powder-y layer underneath the cake. I used a glass dish since that was the pan I had of the right size and I wondered if a metal pan should have been used? So I z-mailed Syd who said he has always used a metal pan. This was so yummy that I will try to make again if I can scrounge up a metal pan the right size. :)

      I have it on good authority that the chef's Mom said this was a _cake_ and who am I to argue with Mom. So we won't tell her that I was quite sure I had mucked this up when my _cake_ was really more like a wonderfully flavored pumpkin pie bar. It had me fooled while baking since my convection oven bakes hot and after my alloted 35 minutes, my tester still wasn't completely clean. I took it out anyway and then it fell slightly. Boy, was I getting alarmed now. So I cut out a corner to do the taste test and discovered a lovely creamy _cake_ . A quick Zmail to the chef confimed that I was right on target. And the caramel sauce, oh the caramel sauce ... just give me a cup and let me drink it. I followed the recipe to a tee - I thought - until, while cleaning up after baking, I discovered a sneaky bag of pecans hiding behind the flour cannister. I highly recommend this dessert - a breeze to make using a food processor and a taste that's out of this world! Thanks so much for sharing this, Syd!

      Despite the long list of ingredients, this is a fairly easy recipe to make. Delish! I used canned pumpkin and fresh ginger instead of powdered ginger. What I really like about this is when you think about pumpkin, a lot of people expect the tradtional "pumpkin pie" taste. While some of the other ingredients remind me of Thanksgiving flavors, the ginger made a delightful, variation of the usual pumpkin partners. Thank you for sharing this delish recipe Mike! **** Made and reviews for ZAARTAG****
