Majik Pumpkin Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour

  • 2 Tablespoons Pumpkin Pie Spice

  • 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt

  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

  • 1 1/2 Cups Lukewarm Milk

  • 1 Cup Canned Pumpkin

  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

  • 4 Eggs, At Room Temperature, Separated

  • 1 Cup White Sugar

  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar

  • 1 Tablespoon Water

  • 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, Melted

  • 1 Teaspoon Cream Of Tartar

  • Maple Cinnamon Whipped Cream:

  • 1 1/4 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream

  • 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

  • 1 Pinch Sea Salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch baking pan.

  2. Whisk flour, pumpkin pie spice, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together in a bowl.

  3. Combine milk, pumpkin, and vanilla extract in a bowl.

  4. Place egg yolks, white sugar, brown sugar, and water in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on high speed until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add butter. Increase speed to medium; beat until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture in 3 batches, blending thoroughly after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl. Stir milk-pumpkin mixture slowly into the mixture until just combined; transfer to a separate bowl.

  5. Clean and dry out the bowl and beaters. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold 3/4 of the egg white mixture into the pumpkin mixture using a spatula; pour into the remaining egg whites, folding mixture in slowly until batter is smooth but still light and fluffy. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are set and center still jiggles slightly, about 50 minutes. Let cool completely, at least 30 minutes.

  7. Beat heavy cream, maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 pinch salt together in a bowl using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Spread over cooled cake.
