Last weekend I posted in Insta Stories this delicious tender spiced pumpkin cake and it caused a total furore. Lots of messages asking for the recipe, and because nothing please me more than satisfying my beautiful followers, here it is, the magic secret for this beautiful cake!
Pumpkins are in season, oooh yeah!! Halloween and Thanksgiving is making my house to look like a pumpkin yard, I love it, also it challenge me to use up all those pumpkin in sooo many different ways, soups, stews, pasta, currys, pancakes, tarts and cakes are my favourite way to use all those pumpkins. But I’m open to suggestions 😉
I baked this in a cold night, and let me tell you it’s superb. It might be healthy, but trust me, it tastes so good. It’s super moist, and spiced with my favorite mix of fall spices…ginger, cinnamon and cloves.
Eating pumpkin is good for your health, it’s a highly nutrient-dense food, and one of the best sources of beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant. It’s rich in fiber and vitamin C help us support heart health and regulating blood pressure.
