    1/2 cup unsalted butter      

    1/2 cup granulated sugar       

    2 large eggs, one separated         

    1/2 cup pumpkin puree           

    1 tablespoon orange zest          

    1 tablespoon grated ginger         

    3/4 cup all purpose flour        

    1/4  cup cake flour           

    1 teaspoon baking powder          

    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon           

    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg           

    couple pinches of salt


    Juice of one large orange      

    1/4 cup granulated sugar           

    Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter or spray with cooking spray a baking pan and set aside. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the whole egg and the yolk one at a time, beating well and scraping the sides of the bowl. Beat in the pumpkin, orange zest, and ginger.

    Sift together the flours, baking powder and salt. Add to the pumpkin batter in three or four stages, blending thoroughly after each. In a small bowl whip the egg white until they hold soft peaks.  Fold into batter, then scrape the batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the center of the oven for 50-60 minutes. Allow to cool for at least ten minutes.

    For the syrup, combine the orange juice and sugar in a small sauce pan over low heat until the sugar dissolves and then increase the heat bringing to a boil. Boil without stirring for 1 minute. Allow to cool.
