Pumpkin Chiffon Cake - I'm a sucker for pumpkin - Recipe

Updated on October 31, 2010

When it comes to pumpkin.........

I'm a sucker for anything pumpkin tasting! Be it pumpkin pie, pumpkin rolls, pumpkin bread....if it is made with pumpkin I'm diving in and will bite you if you try and take it from me. So the holidays are the happiest time of year for me! The holidays are filled with endless amounts of pumpkin desserts.............................ahhhhhhhhhhhhh pumpkin!

So when fliping through my magazine, you could imagine my surprise when I came across a recipe for something new and it had pumpkin in it! I haven't made it yet (I only just found the recipe) but you can be sure that I'm going to be slaving away as soon as I can! Because I want to taste this new pumpkin recipe quick like! The picture alone as my mouth watering!

Recipes are not, usually, something I write about or publish. I'm not one to share recipes either. But this just look to good to pass up.......

What the recipe will need

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs, separated, plus 5 egg whites, at room temp
  • 1 cup canned pure pumpkin puree
  • confectioners' sugar, for dusting

How to put it all together

  1.  Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, the pumpkin pie spice, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, combine the egg yolks and pumpkin puree. Stir the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture until smooth.
  2. Using an electric mixer with a whisk attachment, whip the remaining 9 egg whites at medium speed until foamy, about 2 minutes. With the machine on, gradually whisk the remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar; increase the speed to high and beat until stiff and moist, 1 to 2 minutes
  3. Add one-quarter of the egg white mixture to the pumpkin batter, folding with a rubber spatula just until no streaks remain. Fold in the remaining egg white mixture in the same manner. Pour the batter into a 10-inch tube pan with a removable bottom and bake until springy to the touch and cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes.
  4. Let cool in the cake pan for 5 minutes, then invert the pan onto a narrow-necked bottle and let hang upside down until completely cool, about 1 1/2 hours. Place the cake right side up and remove the pan. To serve, dust the cake with the confectioners' sugar

      This looks good.

      We can usually buy canned pumpkin in England at this time of year.

      I am adding this to my Recipe Index for HubPages - and voting up.

      Ummmmmmmmmm! Yum. I am sort of a sucker for pumpkin too. Pumpkin Soup is incredibly wonderful too. I was introduced to it on my one trip in the mid 1970s to New England - at Sugar Hill Inn in New Hampshire. And it's still a highlight in my memory of that most wonderful trip. If you haven't tried it - find a recipe (authentic if you can) and make some.
