This fall pumpkin pudding cake is a creamy blend of comforting flavors! This is a great and easy desert to make for a lot of people since it's just throwing it together, baking, scooping into bowls, and top it with some whipped cream. It's light and fluffy like pumpkin pie, but creamy and thick like pudding. Nobody will even know that it's completely vegan!
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin puree
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 1/2 cups flour (white or whole wheat)
1/2 cup sugar (white, palm, or coconut)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon (plus more for topping)
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp salt
Non-dairy whipped cream for topping
Preheat your oven to 350º F.
In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, sugar, and milk.
In a separate bowl, mix together your dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, and spices.
Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture, about 1 cup at a time. Stir until all of the dry and wet ingredients are combined.
Grease an 8x8 baking dish, then pour in the batter. Spread out the batter evenly.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the top is slightly browned.
Remove it from the oven and let it set for 30 minutes before serving.
Cut into 9 portions. The top/outside layer will be fluffy like a cake, and the inside will be creamy like pudding.
Spoon into a bowl and top with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon.
