Yum Yum Pumpkin Cake!

I love cakes! My favourite being the classic carrot cake. The first time I tried it I was amazed by its delicious taste and great texture. For those of you who are a bit sceptic, vegetables do make a tasty cake!

This week a colleague of mine had her birthday and her mother prepared this delicious pumpkin cake and sharing her recipe is a must!

250 g flour

100 ml oil

50 ml water
