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
1/2 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.
