Pumpkin Cake for breakfast

We all know that vegetables are essential in our alimentation, but sometimes eating them is not so easy; I go crazy for vegetable soups, risotto and baked vegetable with mayonnaise, etc. but there is food that no one can resist: cakes. So for the days that we’re not in the mood to eat so many veggies, I’ve created this simple and delicious recipe for pumpkin cake. It is a recipe super easy to make and is perfect for Phase 3 breakfast, accompanied by a good smoothie of vegetables and fruits. It is a vegetarian cake, dairy-free, very spongy and slightly moist inside.

A success on every occasion!
