    PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CAKE

    I N G R E D I E N T S

    2 cups self-raising flour
    1⁄2 cup cocoa
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 pinch salt
    1 cup butternut pumpkin, cooked & mashed
    1 cup coconut milk
    3/4 cup maple syrup

    1 tsp apple cider vinegar

    M E T H O D

    1. Combine the flour, cocoa, cinnamon and salt together in a large mixing bowl and set aside.

    2. Combine the remaining ingredients together in a second bowl, then add to the dry ingredients and fold the two gently together using a spatula.

    3. Pour mixture into a greased and lined cake tin and bake for 30 minutes in the oven, or until golden brown. Check the cake by inserting a knife into the centre. If it comes out clean, your cake is cooked.

    1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth, creamy and spreadable. Alternatively, you could mash all ingredients together with a fork. Your icing won’t be as smooth, but will be equally as delicious!
