Pumpkin Cake w/ Cinnamon Mascarpone Frosting & Caramel Sauce

in food •  7 months ago


Fall is here

Baking is fun sometimes. Now that it is getting colder over here, I can enjoy it a bit more and give some sweet autumn pies a go errr . . . cakes!

For this one I used a fresh pumpkin which I previously roasted in the oven, but feel free to use canned pumpkin puree, I don't think it makes any difference.


for the cake:

  • 1 cup flour;
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil;
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda;
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder;
  • ground cinnamon to taste;
  • nutmeg to taste;
  • pumpkin pie spice to taste;
  • 2 large eggs;
  • 1 cup brown sugar;
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree;
  • chopped walnuts (optional);
  • chocolate bits (optional);
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
    for cinnamon mascarpone frosting:
  • 16 oz mascarpone cheese;
  • 2-3 teaspoons ground cinnamon;
  • 1/2 cup sugar (1 cup sugar if you're a sweet tooth);
  • caramel sauce for serving (optional).



  1. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices and set aside. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs, add in oil, pumpkin puree, vanilla and sugar. Mix wet and dry ingredients, throw in some walnuts and chocolate bits, or fillings of your choice.

  2. Preheat your oven to 350F and bake for approximately 30 minutes. Keep an eye on the cake, making sure it doesn't burn.

  3. Place mascarpone cheese in a mixing bowl, add sugar and cinnamon, mix at a medium/high speed until creamy.

  4. Once the cake is cooled down, add frosting and chill overnight.
    Top the cake off with a pour of caramel sauce and fresh plum wedges or any other fruit to your taste.

Lovely food, is this something you recommend trying to cook for a newbie? How long have you been cooking for? :D


Look at the list, read the directions and try to see if it's something you can take on.


I did, I think I can do it... Since I broke up with my girlfriend this will be my way to say sorry, wish me luck! :D


Ты таки крутяшка!👍


Благодарю :)



Очень аппетитный торт). Прекрасные фотографии, вкусные)))

ничосе!! сама?? аплодирую стоя!))
кстати, о тыкве! мне вот мама принесла, я как раз думала, чтобы сделать, но твой шедевр какой-то сложный, вдруг не осилю))


Ага, очень простой пирог, крем можно любой или вообще без крема :) рекомендую!

Wow, this looks dangerously delicious.... 🤤

Oh wow! That looks so damn good! I’ve never made a pumpkin cake, but sounds similar to carrot cake, so it can’t be bad! 😉 Plus, you really can’t go wrong with mascarpone. Yum!
The first photo is basically perfection. And I love that caramel drizzle money shot. lol


Thank you! Funny thing is that I heard of carrot cake, but I haven't had it myself haha. I just got pumpkins from a farmer's market and thought it would be nice to make a cake, to continue with the fall theme that I took upon here lately haha.
