Soft Pumpkin Cake 松软南瓜蛋糕

I love to bake goodies that are simple, light and fluffy.
I love baked goodies that are made of natural ingredients; not with artificial flavouring or colouring. 
And this round, I chose to bake with pumpkin. Browsed through Table for 2 or... more and found this lovely recipe :P

From the photos, it was looking sooooo fluffy and soft

And mine...

I too, used this recipe and turned it into Swiss-rolls and added in pumpkin puree and whipping cream as the filling. It turned out prettily in golden orangey colour that one couldn't resist!
