I had bookmarked this recipe very long ago. Yesterday, I finally baked it. It is too nice to be eaten while it is still hot, the cheddar cheese on top is so crispy and fragrant, one loaf had been eaten immediately after baking. It couldn't even last till the next day.

250g butter (at room temperature)
180g caster sugar
5 nos eggs (A grade)

Guangdong, while walking to the restaurant to have dinner with the relatives, we passed by a biscuit shop, I was attracted by the appearance of the cakes ( picture A), out of curiosity, I asked the boss what it was. He told me they were pumpkin cakes. They were freshly made from the kitchen. And I also saw 3 sacks of pumpkins on the floor. That already told me , this is their signature cake of the shop. So...so, I bought 500g of it, it costed me only a few RMB. It tasted good, and chewy to the bite. I like.
please note : if the dough first kneaded (before adding any water) feels wet and sticky ( because your ingredients contain water) . add some glutinous flour.
