Græskarkage med chokolade fudge frosting
Put the pumpkin in a pot with the brown sugar and water. Cook until the pumpkin is tender. Blend into an even pumpkin purée with a hand-held blender and allow to cool.
Heat the oven to 180 C convection.
Put all the ingredients incl. the pumpkin purée into a mixing bowl and beat the batter for 1-2 minutes until even. It doesn’t matter if the batter separates. Line a 25 × 25 cm form with baking paper. Pour the batter into the form and bake the cake for 25-30 minutes. Insert a skewer into the cake with to see whether the cake is baked. Allow the cake to cool.
Chocolate fudge frosting
Put the chocolate, butter, milk, and coffee in a pot and let it all melt together on a low heat. Stir until combined.
Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl and whisk it for a few minutes. Add the confectioner’s sugar and whisk it until thick and creamy. Pour the frosting into a container and cool it until it is spreadable. Don’t let it harden – you won’t be able to spread it over the cake!
Spread the chocolate fudge frosting over the pumpkin cake and serve. Enjoy!
