Pumpkin & Potato Cake

I'm on a roll with my bakings. Actually,I got to clear my veg drawer coz I got a little crazy over the weekend and went for a vege & fruits spree. Not too many but enuf to fill my vege drawer to the brim. I've got 2 Honey Pineapples coz they were cheaper to buy at two, a whole Honeydew, Tangerines, a packet of Butterheads, Baby Carrots, Carrots, Celery, Baby Brinjals (courtesy of me Baba. He planted them), Bird's Eye Chilies aka Chilli Padis, half Pumpkin, a bunch of bananas, 1 whole Aloe Vera leaf, Spinach, frozen mixed veges and a couple of Japanes Sweet Potatoes. Crazieee...!
So... I gotta use those all up before they start to rot. Thus the cake for tonight. I googled "pumpkins" and got this recipe. Its actually a Pumpkin Bread but I kinda modified it a little and baked this. It's full of pumkiney flavour and the smell's awesome. Penetrated the whole kitchen and part of the house. "B" kept shouting - "Is it ready yet saiyyyang...!???"
