Easy Pumpkin and Walnut Cake

I want to show you my favorite recipe from this season, a very simple, quick and tasty cake. I've been looking for a recipe with this kind of pumpkin for a long time, but to use raw pumpkin, not puree. It is prepared very quickly, it does not have much fat, with a delicate aroma of pumpkin and cinnamon.

You can do a little differently, if you pour the dough into the large stove tray you will get some delicious triangles, see the last picture from the steps.


400 g
raw pumpkin, peeled and seeded
3 pieces
300 g
White flour
300 g
Vegetable oil
2 tbsp
Chopped walnuts
0.5 cups
Baking powder
10 g
1 sachet
Cinnamon powder
0.5 tsp

Step by step


The pumpkin is given through a small grater or you put it in the robot.


It was a little small for me.


Beat the eggs with the sugar.


Add the pumpkin and oil, mix.


Then add the flour and baking powder, mix with a whisk so that they are not lumpy.


Finally add walnuts, if you prefer you can add cinnamon.


Pour the dough into the tray lined with baking paper, here I have a round tray 28 cm in diameter.


Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 35-40 minutes, do the toothpick test.


Optionally you can garnish your powdered sugar, when it cools you serve it.


Here the version with the dough poured into the large stove tray, spread with baking paper, bakes faster, in about 20-25 minutes it is ready.


You can cut into triangles, they taste like gingerbread but a little softer.

Good appetite!
