EwE - Mini Pumpkin Jar Cakes
For Eating with Ellie this week, Peggy chose Mini Pumpkin Jar Cakes. The jar cake/mug cake is currently having a moment, so these cakes fit in well with that.
The cakes are quick and easy to make. I didn't have canned pumpkin puree (which is a rare commodity in Australia), so I boiled and mashed a small piece of Kent pumpkin.
The resulting cakes can't be described as pretty, and they will never replace a traditionally made cake in flavour and texture, but if you want a quick easy dessert and don't have the time or energy for anything laborious, then these tasty little cakes fit the bill.
I served mine with a small scoop of vanilla icecream:
Verdict - not pretty, but pretty tasty:
