Eggless Pumpkin Chocolate Cake



I bought a whole pumpkin from market, which I don’t usually do. So trying out various recipes with pumpkin. And this is one such recipe which turned out to be yummy ….
This is my first trial for a eggless cake. I thought cakes without eggs won’t be soft. But how wrong!! This cake was soft and splendid…
If you want the flavor of pumpkin to be visible in the cake, don’t add the cocoa powder.







Ingredients:
Pumpkin – 150 grams
Maida – 75 grams
Baking powder – 10 grams
Baking soda – 5 grams
Butter – 50 grams
Sugar – 50 grams
Cocoa powder – 10 grams
Cinnamon – 3 grams
Chocolate chips – 20 grams
Salt – to taste

Method:
  • Peel the pumpkin and chop it into cubes.
  • Cover and microwave the pumpkin pieces for about 5 minutes to make it mushy.
  • Grind the cooked pumpkin, sugar and 40 grams of butter into a smooth liquid and keep aside.
  • Powder the cinnamon into a fine powder.


  • Sieve the maida flour, baking powder, baking soda, powdered cinnamon and cocoa powder and add them into a bowl.
  • Add a pinch of salt and the chocolate chips to the above mixture and mix well.
  • Now pour the pumpkin juice little by little and mix the flour to make a soft dough.
  • For me the pumpkin juice was enough to make a semi solid dough.
  • Preheat the oven at 185 degree centigrade.
  • Grease the baking tray with the remaining butter.
  • Place the dough in the baking tray and bake at 185 degree centigrade for about 50-60 minutes.
  • After baking, remove the cake and place it in a wired rack to cool.
