Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter or spray with cooking spray a baking pan and set aside. Cream the butter and ½ cup of the 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 3 or 4 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 10 minutes.

For the syrup, combine the orange juice and 1/4 cup of the sugar in a small sauce pan over low heat until the sugar dissolves, and then increase the heat bringing to a boil. Boil with out stirring for 1 minute. Allow to cool and serve with the cake and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
