Spiced pumpkin loaf

Last year I bought a tin of 100% canned pumpkin from the supermarket, mainly because I was excited to see it as its not as common here as in America. I had no idea at all what to do with it so I googled some ideas as I saw pumpkin loaf. I liked the simplicity of it and decided to play around with the recipe a little and see how it came out.

Spiced pumpkin loaf

80g butter or margarine
Half tin of pumpkin puree
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup self raising flour
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon bicarb
One teaspoon all spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 180c

In a bowl put the dry ingredients – flour, spices, bicarb and sugar in then give them a little mix together

Next add the butter or margarine and stir till combined.

Add the egg and pumpkin and stir till you have a nice smooth mixture.

Line a rectangular loaf tin and put your mix in.

Bake in oven for 40-50 minutes. You may need longer depending on how well your loaf tin cooks so have a look and see if a toothpick comes out clean.
