This pumpkin cake is good anytime, though especially round autumn and Halloween.
You can find tinned 100% pumpkin puree at Waitrose, via Ocado or in specialty shops. You can also make your own with this recipe.
Lovely cake! The only thing you have to do is FOLLOW THE RECIPE! I did it few times last year and it was always perfect! A little advice: the pumpkin puree- I used fresh pumpkin as well-400g and blend it in food processor - 31 Oct 2012
WOW!!! I used Butternut Squash freshly pureed from the garden. It was so tasty, even hubby ate some which is a miracle in itself. (he has never eaten squash before & I did not tell him until after). I made it in a long loaf tin & it took an extra 1/2 hour to cook. It did look very wet & runny when I was pouring it, but I had my fingers crossed. Threw in a handful of walnuts which really did compliment it. Thanks for the great recipe 5* - 23 Oct 2013
Fingers crossed. It looks good in the oven, but not tasted it yet. Little more difficult than my first cake a week ago. - 04 Nov 2012
