How to make pumpkin cinnamon cake
Line a 28-cm square cake tin with greased ovenproof paper. Preheat oven to 175°C.
In a large bowl, sift together flour, custard powder, bicarbonate soda, baking powder
and cinnamon power. Set aside for later use in the recipe.
Cream butter, sugar and grated orange rind in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
Then, beat in honey.
Next, add eggs, one at a time and make sure to beat well.
Add pumpkin puree and beat until all ingredients are well combined.
Carefully fold in flour mixture, half at a time.
Spread cake mixture into prepared cake tin and bake in the preheated oven for about
40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
When done, allow cinnamon pumpkin cake to stand for about 10 to 15 minutes before
turning out onto a wire rack to cool.
*You can either serve pumpkin cinnamon cake as it is or spread chocolate icing on
top of cake when cold. Yes, don’t forget the vanilla ice cream! Yummm.......
