Pumpkin cake a la Skovdal Nordic

As part of my Halloween celebration I decided to make a portion of pumpkin soup with carrot & potato. I brought a large hokkaido, so I decided to use of the pumpkin to bake both pumpkin buns as well as pumpkin cake.

The recipe on pumpkin cake I found in my local newspaper in the Sunday edition (1st November 2020). The only modification, which I have done to this cake recipe is to add in ground nutmeg to have a more rounded spices character.
