Pumpkin Cake Recipe and Bakeware Giveaway
With Halloween only a couple of weeks away we thought it would be a good time for a pumpkin recipe!
We love this one from Nigella Lawson
240 grams butter
175 grams golden caster sugar
1 orange (zest of)
3 large eggs
400 ml pumpkin puree
360 grams flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
for the glaze
orange juice (from the orange you zested)
100 grams sugar
Heat oven to 180C. You may wish to grease/paper the form.
Cream the butter, sugar and zest. Then beat in the eggs, followed by the pumpkin puree.
Mix together in a separate bowl the flour, salt and baking powder. Gradually add it to the liquid ingredients, mixing well but not brutalising the batter.
Pour into the form and bake for 50-60 minutes or until it's springy and beginning to pull away at the sides - because of the sticky amount of pumpkin a tester might not come out clean.
Let it cool for at least 20 minutes, then turn it out. When it is cool to touch pour over the orange glaze.
Glaze: Heat the sugar and juice till the sugar is dissolved and it starts to bubble a bit. Let it cool a bit, then pour over the cooled cake. Alternatively, you could use lime juice - or a mixture of both.
This delicious cake has a damp texture which is nice with some yoghurt. When eaten by the handful it is less crumbly than ordinary cakes. So no need to break out the vaccuum to hide the evidence. The amount of pumpkin puree here is about one sandwichbag full. Using golden sugar rather than white gives it a nice caramelly taste.
