The leaves are turning all colors, it’s getting colder and darker faster, time for a pumpkin pie. I long for a really delicious cake with nuts. Juicy, spicy and ideal with my Pumpkin Spice Latte which I am currently sipping with relish. At Autumn autumn I love to make my own Pumpkin puree to make. It’s really super easy and incredibly versatile. In the Cake it provides great color and a nice binding, just brilliant for our pumpkin pie today. Do you know the feeling when the Cake cools in front of you and you can hardly wait to eat the first piece? Exciting was then always the question of how long the cake survives (in our case, unfortunately, not so long). Are you ready for some autumnal baking? Then let’s get started together.
Vegan Pumpkin Cake – Pumpkin Cake, What?
In autumn are Spices at the top of my list, first of all Cinnamon nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, anise and many more. Practical with this Recipe is, if you already mix the spices together in advance to a Pumpkin Spice Mix mix together. Then you always have the perfect Spice blend ready on the spot and you’re ready to go.
Our today’s Cake consists of two layers, a simple sponge cake and a Crumble . For the dough you need Vegetable milk , baking soda and lemon juice, fine spelt flour (or a gluten free flour mix ), baking powder, coconut blossom sugar, maple syrup, Pumpkin Pie Spice , chopped nuts and a pinch of salt. The crumble consists of spelt flour, coconut blossom sugar, maple syrup, oil, mixed nuts, cinnamon, cardamom and a pinch of salt.
Are you also addicted to pumpkin?
- Sift flour into the bowl willingly (unless you are working with the dough program of a food processor), otherwise lumps may form, which will not affect the taste, but will not look as nice.
- Do not stir too long: Through the baking soda, together with the lemon juice, we create the leavening power for the cake. By stirring for too long, you virtually stir them out of the dough again.
- Grease baking pan well and sprinkle with flour. Alternatively, work with baking paper. A good thing is also to buy a silicone mold, with which you do not need to grease or line.
If you are still in the mood for something more Pumpkin then I recommend you my Pumpkin soup with ginger cream the Pumpkin Cake with Walnuts or the Pumpkin Raw Cake . If you can’t get enough, top the coffee cake with a serving of Coconut cream . Yipieeee! Jürgen, do you ever make coffee? (laugh).
