  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9" square baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl, combine your eggs, pumpkin, milk, molasses and sugar. Beat these into the dry ingredients until a very thick batter begins to form. You want the dough to be slightly thicker than a cake batter. Transfer the mixture into your baking pan.
  • Bake in the center of your warmed oven for 40 - 45 minutes. Test with a cake tester by placing it in the center of the cake. If there is nothing on the stick when you remove it, the cake is ready!
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 - 15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely, before slicing into squares. Serve with a dollop of coconut yogurt (or whipped cream) and a drizzle of molasses.
