Steamed Pumpkin Cake

"This makes a great light textured cake, almost like angel cake. One I like to make because it's so easy. Put in the crockpot and let it do the work. In less than 4 hours you have a great pumpkin dessert. With a dollop of whipped cream this is easy home cooking at its best!"

  1. I was delighted to prepare this in a slow cooker. Just right!
  2. I made this for a Christmas Eve midnight snack. It was easy and very yummy. Nice for a snowy evening in front of the fire, with some hot buttered rum!
