Pumpkin Cake With Sultana & Coconut

“Another clipping I have kept from the Australian Womans Weekly 1987. A little taste of country cooking from rural New South Wales. I made this for my husband to take as morning tea at his work once and it went very quickly.(About 500 grms of raw pumpkin will cook down to 1 1/2 cups mashed)”
