After seeing Sig and Nupur's posts on Taste & Create, I went to Myamii's blog, For the Love of Food, to sign up for this month's event. This is an event that pairs up willing bloggers and then gets them to create one dish from their partner's blog. I was paired up this time with Ben of What's Cooking. I went to his blog and got carried away for a bit. Then I realized what I was there for. I browsed through a predominantly meat based blog to find something that I could create. I decided the dessert section was best for me. And then I found what I was looking for.
I made a few changes to Ben's Pumpkin Cake and made what he calls a bread. But since I don't frost 90% of my "cakes" I will call this a cake for now.
1 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Oil
1 tsp Cinnamon Powder
1/4 tsp Ginger Paste
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup Pumpkin, cooked and mashed
1/3 cup Walnuts, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Grease a 9 inch cake tin.
Beat the eggs, oil and sugar together. Add the dry ingredients and stir until well mixed. Add the mashed punpkin and beat for a minute. Stir in the walnuts. Pour the batter into the greased cake tin and bake at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and cut into wedges.
We devoured a couple of wedges almost as soon as I cut the cake and it was very tasty. It was just the way cakes ought to be, not too sweet, light and moist. This recipe is a keeper!
Happy Easter all!
