With US Thanksgiving fast approaching, we thought of David and his love of life, and of cooking. He posted this recipe last year and said "here is a moist cake that will remind you of the traditional American pumpkin pie".

Table of Contents:


1/2 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed

4 Tbsp butter

1/4 cup molasses

1 egg

1 1/2 cups flour, all-purpose

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp each ground allspice, cloves and ginger


1/4 cup sugar

1 Tbsp cornstarch

1 1/4 cups milk

1 Tbsp dark rum or 1/2 tsp rum extract

1 Tbsp butter

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

a grinding of fresh nutmeg


For the Cake:

1. Combine the pumpkin, brown sugar, butter, molasses and egg, and beat until
light and fluffy.

2. Add the remaining ingredients and beat slowly just until the dry ingredients
are incorporated.

3. Pour into a greased 8-inch square baking dish and bake in a preheated 350 F
oven for 30 or 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes
out clean.

4. Cool on a wire rack andf serve with rum sauce.

For the Rum Sauce:

1. Combine the sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Add the milk and

2. Bring to a boil over moderate heat, stirring constantly.

3. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining ingredients.

4. Serve warm.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.


1. We found the cake dry and think the pumpkin should be increased to 1 1/2

2. We didn't particularly care for the rum sauce. In future we will use the


1 cup brown sugar

2 Tbsp corn starch

3. 2 cups water

4. 1 Tbsp rum (or substitute flavouring)

5. 1 Tbsp butter

Mix brown sugar and cornstarch,

Add water and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened,

Remove from heat and add butter and rum.

Thanks, Des. I'm sorry I didn't realize David's passing was last February. It may have been mentioned here and I missed it; now I'll never know since our archive is gone. The recipe does sound good; I'm glad you saved it and shared it with us again, especially as a tribute to one of our members.

Everyone in the U.S. please have a safe and wonderful holiday, with pumpkin cake!
