Pumpkin Cake Freshly Out Of the Oven

This is a delightful cake, which can be served with or without cream cheese icing. 

It's moist and flavoured with cinnamon, all-spice and nutmeg. 

I used pumpkin puree, but if you wish, you could buy a sugar pumpkin, remove the seeds, roast it and use the cooked pumpkin inside instead. Sugar pumpkins are usually sold at Farmer’s Markets.
