I’ve been feeling a little bit left out with all my friends across the seas running around amidst orange and red autumn leaves and the crisp cold weather; and of course, my blogger friends bringing out the pumpkins for Halloween, and now for Thanksgiving.
I’ve often wondered why we don’t use more pumpkins in India – we get them all year round! They are nutritious, tasty and can be used in countless ways.
Here is a pumpkin cake with (because I craved a bit of Starbucks) an old-fashioned cream cheese frosting with chai latte. This is a very simple cake, which I decided to make a bit fancy – a double layer. I rarely do a double layer, because I have enough cake in the house to go around my hips, but today I felt wee bit decadent – because, why not?
