Description

Pumpkin puree has long been a secret ingredient in all types of cakes and brownies and other baked goods where you want extra moistness, but not always is the flavor of the pumpkin so prominent as in this cake. Rather than use the canned variety, this recipe calls for cutting pumpkin into cubes and baking until tender, for a deeper pumpkin taste. Chopped toasted hazelnuts are also added, for a delicious result.

Ingredients

3 eggs (separated)
250 grams sugar
220 grams flour
50 grams potato starch
100 grams hazelnuts (finely chopped and toasted)
200 grams pumpkin (without the skin and cut into small cubes)
100 milliliters vegetable oil
2 teaspoons baking powder

Directions

1Bake the pumpkin in the oven at 200C until tender.
2Blend the pumpkin in a blender with 1/4 cup water.
3Preheat the oven to 180C.
4Use an electric mixer to beat the egg whites and 1 teaspoon of water to stiff peaks and set aside for later.
5Beat the egg yolks, with the sugar and 1 tablespoon of water until light and foamy, approximately 10 minutes.
6Add the flour, potato starch, baking powder, oil, hazelnuts, and the blended pumpkin.
7Combine well and continue mixing until all the ingredients have been incorporated well.
8Fold in the beaten egg whites carefully.
9Place the batter in a 26 centimeter cake pan which has been previously buttered and floured.
10Bake for approximately 40 minutes.
11Remove the cake from the oven, allow it to cool completely, remove the cake from the pan, and sprinkle it with powdered sugar and sweet powdered cocoa.
