Eggless chocolate cake recipe- using pumpkin puree- Chocolate pumpkin cake

    I love baking, especially cakes. Thinking of the number of calories which goes into a cake, I don’t bake much nowadays. But its too tempting to resist a chocolate cake once in a while. Recently, I came across a healthy dessert blog called chocolate covered Katie. I spent so much time going through the blog and this chocolate cake really surprised me. The original recipe actually used frozen cauliflower. It was suggested that  pumpkin could also be used instead of cauliflower. I had some pumpkin and I decided to go ahead with the recipe. I made some changes to the recipe. The cake was supermoist and soft and of course delicious. I hope you try this cake and enjoy it too!!

    Staring at the cake for minutes 🙂 beautifully presented 🙂 just drooling yum

     
  10. Too much sugar…how do u even eat it….check your ingredients…same amount of maida and sugar

     
    • Fyi, it has 1/4 th cup cocoa powder too along with 3/4thcup maida. So 3/4th cup sugar is necessary here. What I eat is my wish, you dont have to bother about it. Thanks.
