Pumpkin Chocolate Cake

This post is for my good friend Sarah who had her last exam today. I made this cake especially for her. Congratulations Sarah! We did it, can you believe it?!

(Original recipe in German:

4 eggs
200g brown sugar
1 pinch of salt
0.5 lemon
100g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon cinnamon
125g ground almonds
100g spelt flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
300g pumpkin

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 22cm (I took a 24cm) diameter springform pan with parchment paper.

Beat eggs, sugar and salt for about 5 minutes until you got a pale batter. Grate lemon zest and add lemon juice. Mix cinnamon, almonds, flour, baking powder and add. Combine well. Add the chocolate and mix well. Grate pumpkin and fold into the batter. Fill your batter into the prepared springform pan and bake in the middle of the oven for about 50 minutes. Let cool, sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.


  1. Yayyyyyyy!! Good friend Sarah says: thanks a million! Liz: check. Let's celebrate on Nov 4th!!

  2. Note to self: do not eat more than two slices of Katrin's cake at a time.

  3. Sarah! There can never be enough cake! :-) Especially now... in fact, I'm baking right now!
