Sweet Tweaks: Pumpkin Sponge Cake

For our second Sweet Tweaks contest, we're hoping to harness a bit of your Halloween enthusiasm (and maybe turn up a few tasty Thanksgiving dessert ideas) with a moist, fragrant pumpkin sponge cake. Though this cake is generally used as the basis for the popular and delicious pumpkin roll cake (pumpkin sponge cake spread with cream cheese buttercream and rolled up into a log), it seems to us that it's got a lot more potential. So, stuff it, layer it, toast it--anything--just tweak it and have fun!

As with the last contest, we ask that you keep the original recipe somehow recognizable and significant in your entries.
