1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup Pumpkin puree (Make a pumpkin puree by blending it)
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup sugar, powdered
1/2 cup vegetable oil or sun flower oil (not olive oil)
1 t-spoon Baking powder
1/4 t-spoon cooking soda

1/2 table-spoon ground cinnamon
1/4 t-spoon powdered ginger
4 table-spoon walnuts, chopped

1 table-spoon sugar, powdered


How to make Pumpkin cake:

  • First of all, Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Take oil in a large bowl, add Pumpkin puree and sugar to the bowl and mix. Now, add eggs, first the white part only, mash it for a minute. Then, add the yellow part, mash it again for a minute.
  • Then, add flour, vanilla essence, Cinnamon, ginger, chopped walnuts and a pinch of salt (optional). Again mash the complete mixture now. Mash it properly now, for 5 mins. at least so that no lumps remain. The more you mash the mixture the more softer resultant cake well be.
  • Then, add baking powder and cooking soda and mix it properly again for a minute or two.
  • Now, take a pan of microwave oven, grease the bottom and sides of the pan properly with 1 t-spoon butter. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top of it. Put the batter in the pan and spread it properly.
  • Now, start baking the cake. Bake it for 40 mins. If it still sticks after inserting a toothpick, increase the baking time.
  • After 40 mins. or so hot Pumpkin cake will be ready to serve. Cut it into rectangular or triangular pieces and serve hot or let it get cool at room temperature and then serve it.

Note - Always mash the cake as much as you can in clockwise direction only.
