- Gradually add the pumpkin mixture to the creamed butter and sugar. Blend thoroughly. Add half of the flour mixture and stir until barely combined. Add the chopped walnuts and candied orange peels to the remaining flour mixture, and toss to coat. Add to the batter and stir again until just combined.
