Pumpkin Cake Thermomix

Pumpkin Cake Thermomix

How about trying a pumpkin cake made with Thermomix?

I like healthy and fresh products and I still remember when I was lucky enough to have some home grown organic pumpkin available. A dear uncle from Sicily, in fact, had the audacious idea of sending his Roman nephews, by courier, a huge pumpkin from his garden!

Sharing what we cultivate is a nice gesture and helps to circulate the culture of good and fresh things.

The ingredients are very important! To make the Thermomix pumpkin cake turn out well, choose a classic pumpkin, with a nice orange and ripe flesh ;-)

Do you like pies with vegetables inside? Also try the Thermomix sweet zucchini pie.

Tips


For a party you can also bake it in a rectangular pan, so as to cut it into squares!

If you like , you can add a sprinkle of cinnamon in the dough, when you add the flour.

You can replace the butter with 100 g of sunflower oil (or other seed oil).
