Autumn Baking

Autumn is pumpkin time – naturally, I’d like to show you today how to make pumpkin pie.

What you need:

200 g flour

1 tablespoon sugar

125 g butter

1 pinch of salt

~ 600 g pumpkin (I used hokkaido)

4 eggs

2 tablespoons sour cream

5 tablespoons golden syrup

cinnamon, cloves,…

Cut pumpkin into cubes (use a spoon to get rid of the seeds) and spread on a baking sheet. Cook at 200°C for about 20-30 minutes or until the pulp is soft. (If you use a steam oven, 15 minutes will do.)

In the meantime make the dough: mix butter, sugar, flour and salt. Add 1 – 2 tablespoons of cold water, if necessary.

In between two layers of clingfilm – just like I did when making my apple pie the other day – roll out the dough and put it in your pan.

Put the pan into the fridge for about half an hour.

Mash the pumpkin pulp (use a food processor!) and mix with the remaining ingredients.

Spread the pumpkin pulp over the base of your pie and cook at 180 – 200°C for 30 – 40 minutes.

This pie is super-easy to make (even easier than apple pie, actually) and I especially love the bright orange colour.

  1. Thanks, ladies! Shall I tell you a secret? Like, a seriously top-secret-kinda secret? I don’t even like pumpkin! Haha, but it still tasted very good. And I bet if you actually LIKE pumpkin, it tasted even better… but shhhh… don’t tell anyone…
