Hi everyone and
I personally have a lot to be thankful for, but today for me I´ll celebrate thanksgiving by GIVING!
I am giving you all my Pumpkin Cake recipe, the one everyone comes back to, my signature recipe that everybody loves.
It is quite easy to make, over the year my only addition to it has been the way I beat the eggs to make them fluffy and if you feel adventurous to use spices in order to make it a ” spice pumpkin cake”
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of flour
1 cup of pumpkin puree
1 cup of oil
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
The first thing is to sift together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
Beat the eggs ( white an yolks) for a minute until light and fluffy, then add the sugar little by little.
After achieving a creamy texture, add the oil alternated with the flour mixture. Only at the end add the pumpkin puree, it must be at room temperature and with the least amount of water possible.
Bake it in the oven for about 35 minutes at 180º Celcius ( could be more time depending on the oven)
The cake is very light and I love to fill it with either chocolate ganache, swiss meringue buttercream or cream cheese frosting.
Have a great holiday and be thankful!
