Pumpkin Cake (Almond Flour)

This pumpkin cake baked with almond flour yields a very moist cake.   You can spread this with butter and even toast it if you fancy.   I love the bright colour of it too.
  I find that pumpkin gives a dish a natural sweetness and the lovely bright orange colour too.   Feel free to go crazy with adding more spices, as although pumpkin is sweet and moist, it does not have a very strong taste.    So don’t feel too cautious about measuring out the spices.
A moist low carb pumpkin cake recipe the whole family will enjoy.

  • 1 cup Pumpkin canned, unsweetened
  • 1 1/2 cups Almond flour
  • 1 cup Erythritol or other low carb sweetener

  • 1/2 teaspoon Mixed spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg ground
