Pumpkin Cake

Pumpkin Cake


Hi all, how was your weekend? I have been busy for the past few days. I brought my elder sister to see Consultant Psychiatrist (after her husband passed away for a year but she still not sleeping well at night and very often feel anxious. Earlier we thought this way of behaviour is ok since her husband just passed away but we see no improvement after a year, so we decided to bring her to see doctor, now she is under medication). Also i went to visit my sister-in-law who just gone through an operation of removal uterus due to tumor in her uterus, pity her and i do hope she will get well soon.
Ok, back today post, this is a pumpkin cake that i made using the half pumpkin that i bought earlier (i use the same pumpkin to make pumpkin black sesame bread earlier).





Pumpkin Cake


This pumpkin cake is very similar to the pumpkin butter cake i made earlier, but this pumpkin cake is more flavourful as this recipe requires to add pumpkin puree, diced pumpkin, pumpkin seeds and sliced pumpkin, a 100% truly pumpkin cake!! In fact, this cake was really good !

This cake must be very soft and moist. I have never use pumpkin in making cakes before. Just wondering how it taste? I hope your sister and your sis-in-law will recover soon. Give your sister all the support and loves she wanted and I believe she can overcome this obstacles she is having now.

Hi, Sonia,
Lovely pumpkin cake. I would say it takes some time to heal when our loved one is not there anymore. My mum passed away few months back but i still deeply missed her as if the passing is yesterday. What your sister needs is the family supports and cares for her to go through this difficult period.
