A very rustic dessert in appearance and extremely delicious to taste. The combination of pumpkin and walnuts makes the cake substantial and fantastically good.
First, grease with oil and flour the donut mold. I use one of cm 20. Now chop the walnuts coarsely. Then grate the raw pumpkin. Heat the oven to 180 ° ventilated mode.
Divide the ingredients in the following way. Bowl 1 (use it large): flour, baking powder, chopped walnuts (100 g of total), chocolate chips, salt.
Bowl 2: sugar, oil, vegetable drink of choice, vanilla, cinnamon. Bowl 3: grated pumpkin. Proceed with the preparation.
Bowl 1: mix the dry ingredients well to evenly distribute both the yeast and the nuts, and the chocolate chips.
Bowl 2: mix the moist and the aromas with a whisk until the sugar has partly melted.
Pour the bowl 2 of the moist into the bowl 1 of the buckets. Mix very well to mix everything perfectly.
Then add the pumpkin of the bowl 3, stirring just as well. You will get a thick dough, it's normal.
Pour the dough into the pan with the spoon.
Level the dough, always with the help of a spoon or a spatula. Bake for 45 minutes, even 50 depending on the oven.
Once cooled, gently remove the cake from the mold and decorate with icing and walnuts.
Icing in water: put the icing sugar in a small bowl and add 1 cucchaio of lukewarm water. You must obtain a viscous and dense mixture.
Pour the glaze over the cake and sprinkle with chopped walnuts.
Voilà, your masterpiece is ready!
NOTE 1 this is a very moist cake, so I recommend cooking in the ventilated mode so that the heat is spread evenly.
NOTE 2 The toothpick test to check the cooking is difficult because it is very likely that you sink the toothpick into a drop of chocolate and bait wet! In any case, since it is a moist cake, do not cook less than 45 minutes. I cook it for 50 minutes in my oven.
NOTE 3 To make icing sugar at home, just blast it for a long time with a mixer. To make the operation better (50 g disperse in the jug) put 1 ounce, the rest will use it for the next dessert! Bimby procedure: 20 sec./vel. 10
NOTE 4 Using a brown sugar (I use the demerara type) you will get a brownish glaze. If you want beautiful white, use the powdered sugar obtained from refined white sugar. Choose the desired effect.
