Vegan Pumpkin Orange Cake #SundaySupper

As much as I hate to see summer go, I do love the flavors of fall.
Pumpkin and apple dishes galore. Sweet potatoes are back in season. Cranberries and nuts make their return too. Don’t forget that first sip of fresh made hot chocolate!

This week our #SundaySupper hostess is Pam from The Meltaways ! Pam wanted to do something special for fall and came up with this great idea! Our theme is the celebration of one of the most fun food colors of the season …


My orange colored contribution is

Pumpkin Orange Cake

This cake is vegan friendly. It contains no butter, eggs or milk. The orange flavor enhances pumpkin’s natural sweetness.
Check out my tutoral on making your own pumpkin puree HERE. So easy and so worth it!


  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/2 cup pumpkin, puree
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp orange zest
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

1. 1. In a medium size bowl, combine pumpkin, oil, orange juice and orange zest and spice. Slowly fold in brown sugar to avoid causing lumps.
2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
3. Slowly stir dry ingredients into pumpkin mixture until it forms a stiff batter.

Place batter into a greased and floured 8×8-inch baking dish, or do as I do, make cupcakes! 😉

4. Bake at 350 for approximately 25 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Cool on wire rack for several minutes before attempting to remove from pan. Cooled cake can also be cut into squares directly from pan. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired before serving. Cake freezes well.

  25. I've never mixed pumpkin and chocolate, but I see a lot of folks doing that this season–need to give it a try!

  26. juanitascocina says:

    I bet the chocolate frosting accompanied these perfectly!

  27. Magnolia Days says:

    From the looks of them you would never know they were vegan. I don't think I could part with my flour and butter though. But who knows…I'll have to give it a try one day.

  28. diabeticfoodie says:

    These cupcakes look great. I'm not sure I've tried chocolate and pumpkin together before, but all of a sudden, I'm seeing those two flavors together everywhere!

  29. I really need to go eat an orange now 😉

    Everything is so yum!
