Here I indulge my love of all things ginger! Don’t you love this warm colour and spice?! And it goes so well with pumpkin it would be a sin not to pair them… Here is your week-end recipe, just in time!
Libby’s pumpkin purée is a very ubiquitous ingredient in the UK and it is a great product to use when winter makes fresh fruit a bit more scarce… So this is a cupboard or pantry recipe, unashamedly quick and practical.
- Eggs, 3
- Libby’s pumpkin purée, 3/4 of a jar
- Brown sugar, 150g
- Rapeseed oil, 100ml
- Self-Raising Gluten free flour mix, 150g
- Bicarbonate of soda, 1 tsp
- Ground ginger, 1 generous Tbsp
- Cinnamon, 1 Tbsp
- Vanilla extract
Blend the eggs with sugar and pumpkin purée.
Add the oil, then the flour mixed with the bicarbonate.
Blend in the spices. I use a robot for that but you can make do with a hand whisk because all the ingredients are very easily blendable.
Pour the mix into a rectangular pan and bake for 30 minutes at 180°.
This is a lovely and light cake with lots of seasonal spices, perfectly suited to the winter and delicious with a cup of chai latte or coffee latte.
Because it is rather low in sugar and has no dairy in it, I will still call it a bread but it is as indulgent as it gets! The pumpkin purée makes it very moist and similar to a gingerbread. Just a nice, healthy twist on it…
