One of my fetish ingredients in the kitchen, both sweet and salty, is without a doubt the pumpkin which I use very frequently, especially in autumn and winter, but also the rest of the year.
I propose this PUMPKIN AND CANDIED ORANGE CAKEa cake for a special day that departs a bit from the traditional cake.
The pumpkin, a great ally of the masses, the almond that always provides moisture and sweetness and the candied oranges that give it that Christmas touch typical of this time help all this.
In this PUMPKIN BISCUIT, the pumpkin brings color, flavor to the crumb but also juiciness and lightness in its texture.

I have not experienced this recipe with another type of flour.
All ingredients should be at room temperature.
Have you forgotten to take the eggs out of the fridge?
A home remedy for when you have forgotten to take them out of the fridge in advance is to submerge them in warm water for a few minutes, in this way we will be able to temper them.
Do you want to use sweetener? If you want to do without sugar in the sponge cake recipes, you can replace the indicated amount of sugar with its equivalent to the sweetener you use. Remember that not all sweeteners are used for baking, they must specify on the label that they withstand high temperatures and that the final result may vary because sugar is an important ingredient in the chemical composition of this dough. If you make this cake with sweetener, beat it with the eggs.
Stevia powder: It is a natural sweetener, obtained from the leaves of the stevia plant, a substitute for common sugar.
There are various brands of stevia and in some cases they leave a somewhat artificial aftertaste, so we try to try until we find the one that seems most natural to us and is best achieved.
1 kg of sugar is equivalent to 6 g of Stevia.
Frozen? This cake is kept in perfect condition for 3 or 4 days. You can freeze it WHOLE OR IN PIECES in suitable bags and thaw at room temperature.
Controls baking and if the surface is browned too muchcover with aluminum foil, if this is not necessary DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN during the cooking process under any circumstances.
