This is my own idea for a pumpkin cake, based on my favorite carrot cake recipe.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch round cake pan.
  2. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, cardamom, lemon zest, and ginger in a large bowl. Add the egg yolk, pumpkin puree, and oil; mix until smooth. Gently stir the egg whites into the batter; pour into prepared pan. Arrange the apple slices atop the batter; sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I didn't care for this recipe at all. I had extra pumpkin puree (from a can) so thought this cake sounded like it could be good. Unfortunately, it wasn't. The cardamom was completely overpowering for my taste, although my husband did like it. The texture is not light and fluff like cakes normally are, instead, it's heavy and dense. I thought the taste was better with fresh whipped cream or ice cream. One more thing, the cake was in the oven for 45 minutes before the knife came out clean. I don't envision baking this again, but I appreciate the recipe..

This is not really sweet and pretty dense. Nobody has touched it since our first taste.

I really liked this recipe. I loved that is really moist and that it's not too sweet. There's a good balance of flavors. My in laws who are French and aren't used to too many pumpkin based cakes, absolutely loved it too.
