  1. For the crust: Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  3. Pack the mixture into the base of 7" springform cake pan that's been lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes and then remove from the oven and let cool to one side.
  5. For the filling: Drain the cashews from their soaking water. Combine with the banana, tofu, sugars, coconut oil, cornstarch, lemon juice, vanilla extract, pumpkin purée and spices in a food processor.
  6. Blend on high until smooth. Spoon the filling onto the baked crust, spreading out evenly.
  7. Bake for 50-60 minutes until the filling is set and coming away from the edges. Remove to a cooling rack.
  8. Once cool, wrap with plastic wrap and chill overnight.
  9. To serve: When ready to serve, turn out the cake onto a serving platter.
  10. Melt the sugar with the water in a sauté or frying pan set over a medium heat until a light golden caramel forms. Add the pumpkin seeds and swirl to coat.
  11. Tip out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let cool and set.
  12. Carefully open up the can of coconut milk. Scrape out the solids into a mixing bowl; reserve the liquid for smoothies or another use.
  13. Whip the coconut milk until softly peaked and creamy. Spread it over the top of the cake and garnish with the caramelized pumpkin seeds before serving.
