Pumpkin Walnut Cake

Pumpkin Walnut Cake
Canned pumpkin replaces some of the fat found in traditional layer cakes while keeping it moist and rich-tasting. And instead of butter, we got away with using just a little canola oil.
For the glaze, mix up some maple syrup and milk and you can skip all the sugar and butter called for in more traditional toppings.
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3¼4 teaspoon baking powder
1¼4 teaspoon baking soda
1¼2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1¼2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1¼4 teaspoon salt
1¼4 teaspoon ground allspice
1¼8 teaspoon ground cloves
3¼4 cup organic sugar or sucanat
1¼4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1¼2 cup canned pumpkin
1¼4 cup 1% low-fat milk
1¼4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
maple cream sauce
1¼2 cup low fat milk
1¼2 teaspoon cinnamon
1¼2 cup maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine first 8 ingredients (pastry flour through cloves) in a small bowl, whisking until well blended. Combine sugar, canola oil, and vanilla in a large bowl, stirring until blended. Whisk in egg, then stir in pumpkin.
Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, alternating with the low-fat milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Pour batter into a 9-inch-diameter cake pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with walnuts and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in the center. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan and continue cooling on wire rack.
To make the sauce, combine milk and cinnamon in a small heavy-bottomed saucepan. Cook over low heat until mixture just begins to boil; immediately stir in syrup and continue cooking until sauce thickens slightly.
To serve, cut cake into 8 wedges. Place each wedge on a serving plate and drizzle maple cream sauce on top.

UST Executive Conference on the Future of Health Care
Dates: 11/5/2020 – 11/5/2020
University of St.Thomas Saint Paul
2260 Summit Avenue
Discover how you can play an active role in shaping the future by what you do within your organization and network with other health care leaders who are dealing with similar issues. The pace of change in health care has increased exponentially since our inaugural health care conference. And by the time the second annual conference convenes, Congress will have passed its bill for health care reform. We’ll have officially begun a new journey.Fortunately, visionary leaders have been helping to shape this next phase of health care. Investments in innovation and quality have led to some very effective – and often surprising – ways to cut costs, reduce errors, increase service and satisfaction, and improve access and outcomes. Bold initiatives such as these should be shared – especially during this transformative time, when we are all looking for fresh models of excellence. The University of St. Thomas and its partners invite you to participate in an inspiring day of learning, sharing and strategizing about how we can leverage innovation and quality to thrive in the new health care environment.
