This lovely golden pumpkin butter cake is a hit by my family members that I baked it in 2 consecutively as not enough to go around! This is really a very delicious butter cake with melts-in-the mouth texture, that's why I think everyone love it :)

- 150gm sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla paste
- 5 large eggs
- 300gm cake flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 200gm soft steamed pumpkin flesh
