American sweets in a different way

Pumpkin vegan cake

Pumpkin pie vegan is our choice for today’s dessert, and here’s why!

The American pumpkin pie is very different from the cakes we are used to in this area. Unlike the famous “pumpkin,” the American cake is made of plain skin, and the top is creamy.

This cake was made in North America, where the pumpkin itself was made. Today, the cake is traditionally a holiday dessert for the American Thanksgiving holiday. Pumpkin pies came to France first from America, then to England and the rest of Europe. Each nation changed the recipe according to the ingredients they had in the area where they lived. However, the main one has remained, and that is the pumpkin.

Here’s how to make a vegan version of this fall treat.
