PUMPKIN CAKE

Photobucket

Went to market recently and spotted some nice and fresh pumpkins off the shelves, bought them hastily. Besides serving the pumpkin as side dish, I baked a cake out of it. It turns out yummy and my family love them so much. If fresh pumpkin is unavailable, use canned pumpkin instead. Here is the recipe:

INGREDIENTS

1 C pumpkin puree
3/4 C sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/2 C all purpose flour
1/2 C melted butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 C milk
1/2 C chocolate rice

METHOD

* Preheat oven @ 170 C.

* Beat butter, sugar, soda, salt and cinnamon until well blended.

* Combine together flour, chocolate rice, pumpkin and milk.

* Add butter to the flour mixture, stir until just combined.

* Pour onto 7 in greased pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

* Cool on pan for 10 minutes then transfer to wire rack.

This looks absolutely amazing. I tend not to have anything pumpkin this time of year, but you've got me thinking if I can find a couple of pumpkins at the market tomorrow morning it would be a good thing.
