According to a news article that I spotted earlier today, 18,000 tons of pumpkin and squash is thrown away every Halloween after they've been carved.
Instead of adding to this waste, why not turn your pumpkin into soup, stews, risotto or this delicious five layer Pumpkin and Pecan cake. Much like a carrot cake, this pumpkin cake is really moist, and is a great way to get some veggies into the kids!
It's a simple cake to make and can be made in five 6" tins or two 8" tins.
