Ingredients Serving: 6

  1. 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 4 tablespoon cocoa powder
  4. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  5. ½ teaspoon baking soda
  6. ½ teaspoon cinnamon powder
  7. ½ teaspoon nutmeg powder
  8. ½ teaspoon salt
  9. 3/4 cup fresh pumpkin, peeled, cut roughly in small pieces
  10. 1 apple, peeled and cut roughly in small pieces
  11. 2 tablespoons refined oil
  12. 6 tablespoons milk
  13. For Glaze:
  14. 1/2 cup icing sugar
  15. 1 tablespoon milk
  16. a few drops orange food color


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Grease mini bundt pans/mini cake pans or pudding moulds. Any mould that will allow you to join 2 halves of roughly semi spherical cake will work.
  3. Place the pumpkin and apple pieces in a blender with the milk and puree until smooth.
  4. Add oil and sugar and mix well.
  5. In another bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.
  6. Mix the dry and the wet ingredients until just mixed to make a smooth batter, do not overmix
  7. Pour batter in the prepared moulds and bake for 14-15 minutes. Allow to cool completely before demoulding and glazing
  8. After demoulding the mini cakes, join 2 halves so it looks like a spherical cake and resembles a pumpkin. Trim the bottoms if necessary.
  9. For the glaze: mix all the ingredients until it is a smooth paste. Adjust consistency by adding a little more sugar or milk accordingly. Pour on top of the cakes
  10. Add a herb or a leaf (i used sage leaves) and a chocolate roll to resemble the stem
