Eggless whole wheat pumpkin cake: Delicious cake recipe made with whole wheat flour, pumpkin, walnuts, and no eggs! Pumpkin is a versatile vegetable and I would love to try dessert recipes with pumpkin. I have already shared Pumpkin kheer and pumpkin halwa. This pumpkin cake is my recent try. I just referred this and tweaked it a bit! It turned out surprisingly good, should say it is the best soft whole wheat cake I ever baked.

- I used homemade pumpkin puree; You can use storebought one too.
- If the final mixture is too thick after adding wheat flour mix, add few tbsp of milk to get the desired consistency.
- Don’t over mix after adding the dry ingredients, fold them for 10-15 seconds.
- This pumpkin cake stays well for four days at room temperature and keeps good for a week if stored in the refrigerator.
- You could use any nuts of your choice instead of walnuts.
- Mixing and measurements are most important for the perfect cake.
