3 eggs, separated

4 tablespoons of xylitol sweetener or sugar

2 cups roasted butternut squash, cooled and well blended

pinch of salt

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

zest and juice of one lemon

4 tablespoons oil


roughly chopped ¼ bar dark chocolate

2 tbs cranberries

Let us imagine, what would happen if we replaced the flour with pumpkin pulp? Turns out it is the great idea! Not that I had not made pumpkin cake earlier, replacing carrot with pumpkin. However, this time around,  seems like it is something quite new!  Especially when the pumpkin is kind of floury, you do not really need any flou rat all. And I tell you, the combination of pumpkin with lemon and vanilla is a total winner. The sweet cake topped with dark chocolate and cranberries.. Oh my, the cake is festive and delicious. Just perfect.


Split the eggs. Beat the egg whites until stiff and put aside. Put the yolks in a separate bowl. Whip the egg yolks with sugar/sweetener until  pale and triplied in volume. To the yolks, add the salt and baking powder together with pumpkin pulp. Add vanilla and lemon zest and juice.  Mix thoroughly, scraping down the pastry from  of the sides of the bowl. Add 4 tablespoons of oil.  Finally, add gently the beaten egg whites in 3 portions. Put the batter into a well buttered cake  tin, scatter chopped chocolate and cranberry on top and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F (180 C)  for about 40-45 minutes, until skewer inserted in the cake come out clean.
