Pumpkin is an unfairly forgotten vegetable that has a pleasant aroma, delicate and sweet taste, and rich nutritional value. It is an excellent component for all kinds of menus and healthy diets. Nowadays, pumpkin is increasingly becoming an attribute of the Halloween table, where it is more a decorative element than a food product. However, nutritionists unanimously assure that pumpkin should definitely be eaten!

Usually, porridge is made from it, side dishes are made, jams are made, used in salads, casseroles, desserts. However, it is beautiful in all its manifestations. Today I will tell you how to use it in baking. Here's the simplest recipe for a pumpkin semolina cake. You can bake such a cupcake like me - one big one, or you can make small portioned cupcakes.
