Ingredients

Dry

  • 1 cup flour all-purpose

  • 1 tsp baking soda

Wet

  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin purée
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Icing

  • 3 tbsp confectioners sugar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp non dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

Preparation

Step 1 – set oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit; line and grease a loaf pan, set aside; sift the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl, next in a separate bowl combine the sugar and the pumpkin puree until well incorporated finally mix in the oil and vanilla extract.

 

Step 2 – add the wet mix to the dry mix and stir to combine, making sure all the flour is mixed in; pour batter into prepared pan, smooth out the top and bake for 35 – 40 minutes until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 3 – prepare the icing by combining the sugar, maple syrup and salt, stir well until all of the sugar is worked in; if icing is too thick use 1/2 to 1 tbsp non dairy milk to thin out; drizzle icing with a spoon over the cake and top with the chopped pecans gently pressing them in, the icing acts as a glue that will hold the pecan topping in place.
