Pumkin and ginger tea loaf........now with photo!
« on: May 11, 2013, 08:25:55 am »
This cake is delicious, very moist  :)
I think the original recipe (which a friend made) is from the BBC food website. This is my first conversion!

PUMPKIN AND GINGER TEA LOAF

INGREDIENTS

175 g butter
140g runny honey
1 large egg
250g raw, peeled pumpkin or squash (approx 500g before it is peeled and de seeded)
100g light brown sugar
350g self raising flour
1 tbsp ground ginger
2 tbsp Demerara sugar (this is for the top before baking but I had run out so didn't bother)

METHOD

pre heat oven to 180 C (160 C in fan forced oven)
Line a large loaf tin  (1.5k)

Put peeled roughly chopped pumpkin into bowl and chop for 5 seconds speed 8 - set aside.
Melt butter 50 degrees speed 2 for 21/2 min.....no need to clean bowl after emptying out pumpkin
Add sugar, honey and egg, 5 seconds speed 4
Add flour, ginger and pumpkin, 50 seconds speed 3 (or until well mixed)
Put mixture into tin and  sprinkle Demerara sugar on top (if using)
Bake for approx 50-60 mins
Leave in tin for 5 mins then cool on a rack
Serve thickly sliced with butter

Enjoy! :)

CP - Have made this for Mum for Mothers Day, not sure if it will be too sweet for her but I'll find out over the next day or so.

My Mum would love this one Tc, too late to make it for Mothers' Day now so she will have to wait a bit longer.

This sounds lovely TC.  I'll certainly be making this one.

GC it is certainly an interesting combination. I love the fact that I wouldn't have to cook the pumpkin first.

So, does the pumpkin go back in with the flour? Sounds good not having to cook the pumpkin first.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.
