Pumpkin Cake

I happen to try some delicious store-bought pumpkin cakes at my friend's house recently which prompted me to make one myself. Since now is the season for pumpkin, the Libby's 15oz canned pumpkin is on-sales for $1 each. So, I grabbed some. After some research, I decided to try the Pumpkin Cake I posted at

The alternation that I made was I cut down the sugar to 2 cups. It turned out just nice for me, not overly sweet. I omitted the allspice because I don't have any and I also omitted the walnuts, easier for the kids to eat.

This cake is delicious, best eaten the next day when the crust has soften, easier to slice too. I store my cake in air-tight container.

Just want to show how moist and soft this pumpkin cake is! The spices are not too overpowering, just nice. A very festive cake indeed!

Lastly, while presenting you with this Pumpkin Cake, I want to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year! For those who don't celebrate Christmas, Happy Holidays to you too! :)

Merry Christmas to you and your family too.

Your pumkin cake looks delicious, i've tried baking with pumkin before, and i realised the pumkin taste will be stronger if eaten on the next day, does that happen to yours too?


Little Corner of Mine said...

Thanks Dwiana! :)

Thanks Suzanne. Yes. this cake tastes better the next day onwards. Not only the pumpkin and spices taste stronger but it was soft and moist too.
