Pumpkin Carrot Cake

Yummy Bakes | 7:49 PM |
The moment I saw this cake, I tell myself I have to bake this. It looks too good to give it a pass ...

From the photo at Cheah's blog, the cake looks very soft and tangy. The sweet pumpkin blended very well with the sourish cranberries.

Like what Cheah has shared, I will also probably bake this for Chinese New Year - I think the colour presentation would certainly good during CNY.

Receipe is taken from Cheah and Amy Beh who have shared this great cake.
