Apple & Pumpkin Autumn Treat

It’s Autumn, my favorite season and I feel like celebrating it, so what better way than with a cake. I popped over to our local farm and bought some pumpkins for this delicious and autumnally treat.

The Ingredients

350g pumpkin
2 apples
150g braun sugar
150g spelt flour (or plain flour)
150g ground almonds
1 lemon
120g butter
3 eggs
3 tbsp milk
1 sachet of baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cardamom

Preheat the oven at 180°C. Mix the dry ingredients together (flour, sugar, almonds, baking powder and spices). Add the butter and eggs. Mix in the chopped apple (soaked in lemon juice), the grated pumpkin and stir in the milk. Put the mixture in a cake tin (mine has a diameter of 24cm) and bake for 40-50 minutes.

Treat yourself…

I did!


  1. Ausgezeichnet!! Absolutely amazing photos, will have to try this cake, but I will substitute Flax Eggs for chicken eggs, and almond milk for cow’s milk and vegan butter! Really want to make this cake!! Danke Schoen!! 🙂

  2. Sounds great. I know I can look up what 150 grams equals in cups, but what is a sachet in size. ..a teaspoon? Also, I’m not clear on the pumpkin. Do you peel it or just grate all of it?

    • I’m so glad that my recipe appeals to you. I’m sorry, this time I didn’t get round to converting the recipe, but I hope I can help with your inquires: a sachet is about one and a half teaspoons and the pumpkin is peeled and then grated.
      Kind regards,

  6. Looks delicious. I’m going to try to make it tomorrow. Hopefully, I can tweak it a little and come up with the right measurements. If it turns out, would you mind if I shared the recipe on my blog? Thanks for sharing.
