Tip

This recipe came to us many years ago through our childcare centre, the origin of the original recipe is unknown. These are a kind of a cross between a cake and a cookie, and have become known as 'cakies' in our family.

The texture of the cakies will vary depending on whether the pumpkin is cooled, cooled pumpkin results in a more cookie-like texture, hot/warm pumpkin results in a more cake-like texture (If I had to pick, I probably prefer the cookie-like texture with the cooled pumpkin).

We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

    Oh my Lordy.... Yum yum! I followed Lu and thermo's idea of replacing the sugar with coconut and maple syrup and used broken pieces of 90% choc because that's all I had.

  • Thank you for this recipe

    Thank you for this recipe they are lovely! I just made a  healthy version of these & they are yummy! 

    I used 50g  coconut sugar instead of white sugar, added this to the pumpkin to break up. I also added 20g maple syrup. Then, I used 65g coconut oil instead of butter & only used 75g dark chic chips. Mine are also GF as I used GF flour.  

    I must have made mine much smaller as I got 35 cakies from this recipe. Mine came out like soft rock cakes. Yum!

    Great recipe! Hubby and I loved them. The kids are yet to try them, however I did put them in the lunchboxes this morning and I have no doubt they will love them too. I used 150g of sugar which was enough sweetness for me. Thanks for posting! tmrc_emoticons.)
