  • 200 grams pumpkin puree 3/4 cup
  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • Preheat your oven to 180C/350F/Gas mark 4 and lightly grease or line a 2-pound loaf tin, then place it to one side.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices, salt and sugar. Gently mix them all together until well combined. Then place the bowl to one side.
  • In a small bowl add in the pumpkin puree, milk, egg and melted butter and stir until everything is very well combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry and with a gentle hand combine the two. Careful not to over-mix the batter.
  • Pour the batter into your loaf tin and place it in your hot oven for 45 minutes.
  • Test that your cake is baked through, then take it out of the oven but allow it to sit in its tin for 10 minutes.
  • Then remove the cake to a cooling rack and allow it to fully cool down.
  • This loaf will freeze really well for 3 months. To defrost take it out of the freezer and place it into the fridge to defrost overnight. Or Slice it up and freeze the individual slices.
