Well, they are in season! Who hasn’t got some pumpkin flesh lying around in their kitchen? there is only so much soup one can eat! I tried Pumpkin Pie once and it wasn’t really a winner….
I won’t actually need to post the recipe because I have already…. You see, whilst scooping all the flesh out of our pumpkin, a mindless job in itself, my mind wondered to cakes and what I could try out. One thought popped out: carrot cake! It is the same colour after all!! So I followed my recipe to the letter
but instead of carrots, I used pumpkin! I made into a cake and it was so yummy, I made some more, this time into muffins… topped with a simple vanilla buttercream, enhanced by a drop of orange food colour. Enjoy!
