Mad about Pumpkin Cheesecake

Pumpkin Cheesecake Cut

I’d never used pumpkin in my cooking or baking before, so I had no idea how this cheesecake would turn out. I do know that I love pumpkin soup and cheesecake, so combining these two ingredients couldn’t be such a bad idea. Or at least I’d hoped so.

Pumpkin Cheesecake

This unusual cheesecake is a blend of mild tangy ginger and rich pumpkin flavours. The crunchy toasted pecans in the base provides a nice contrast in texture to the smooth pumpkin and cream cheese blend above.

I actually liked the cake better after it’d sat in the fridge for 2 days. My family didn’t like this cake that much, served with or without whipped cream and pecans, so I guess I won’t be making this again anytime soon.

Nutella Cake Whole

The recipe for this yummy cake comes from Nigella Lawson’s How to be a Domestic Goddess.

I love Nutella, so this dense, nutty and chocolately cake was absolute heaven for me!
