This pumpkin cake baked with almond flour yields a very moist cake. You can spread this with butter and even toast it if you fancy. I love the bright colour of it too.
I find that pumpkin gives a dish a natural sweetness and the lovely bright orange colour too. Feel free to go crazy with adding more spices, as although pumpkin is sweet and moist, it does not have a very strong taste. So don’t feel too cautious about measuring out the spices.
As well as the flavour, the next great thing about this pumpkin cake is the low carbs it has. Only 3g net carbs a slice!
Feel free to take this basic pumpkin cake recipe and add nuts and spices to it. Perhaps a delicious cream cheese topping too. Either way, bake, eat and enjoy this delicious low carb pumpkin cake.
