Pumpkin puree*: To make pumpkin puree, cut a pie pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff, cover the flesh side of each half with foil and bake foil side up for 1 hour at 350°. Then scoop the soft flesh out and run through blender or food processor until smooth.

Using a the mixer again add all of the wet ingredients, eggs, pumpkin and water and mix well.

In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix with a spoon or wisk.
