Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F/175 degrees C. Grease and line a 9-inch/23-cm springform pan.

Beat the yolks and sugar until light and pale. Beat in the cornstarch and corn flour until smooth. Beat in the pumpkin, rum and orange zest. Finally, in another bowl, beat the whites into peaks. Stir some of the whites into the pumpkin mixture to lighten it, then fold in the remaining whites. Pour the batter into the pan and bake until done, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Let the cake cool slightly before running a knife around the edges of the pan and removing the sides. Serve slightly warm (not too warm, or impossible to cut) with cinnamon whipped cream.

    I don't know what I did wrong, but that is the ONLY recipe from Laura that I did not like (actually hated. I love all of her recipes (I've tried soooo many, but this was not edible. Sorry Laura :-(

    Easy to make! A light dessert for any occasion! I've served this to my family and friends, and everyone raved about how good it was! I plan on serving it often!

    Although mine wasn't super fluffy this was delicious and the family indicated this is a keeper. We loved the addition of the cinnamon in the whipped cream and the cake itself was moist and tasty!
