Healthy, because

Even smarter

Pumpkin is a good supplier of vitamin A, B vitamins, potassium, copper and manganese. We need these substances, for example, for a healthy water balance and vision at dusk.

Halloween recipes are often full of sugar, but this cake is not. But it still doesn't do without it. Especially the marzipan spiders are a source of sugar. If you want to do without them, you can draw little spiders of melted dark chocolate on the cake.

Preparation steps

1.

For the base: Place biscuits and amaretti in a freezer bag and crumble finely with a rolling pin. Melt butter, mix with the crumbs and press dough firmly into a springform pan lined with parchment paper and allow to cool.

2.

For the filling: Cut pumpkin into cubes and cook covered in boiling water for about 15-20 minutes until tender, drain and puree.

3.

Combine cream cheese, yogurt, sugar, vanilla sugar and spices with an electric mixer to a smooth cream. Boil lemon and orange juice in a small saucepan, mix with pumpkin puree and stain vigorously with a few drops of yellow food coloring. Add cream cheese mixture, mix well and spread over crumb base into the springform pan.

4.

Leave cake in the refrigerator 3-4 hours to set. Meanwhile, for the marzipan, color at will with food coloring, knead and form small spiders. Once cake surface is set, mix powdered sugar with 1-2 tablespoons of water to a thickish paste, color with red food coloring, fill in a freezer bag, cut a small hole in one corner and make a spider web on the cake. Decorate with marzipan spiders, release from the mold and serve.
