Pumpkin Tray Bake

Halloween cooking is my favourite, anything from pumpkin soup to pumpkin pie, sweets to stews! This is one of my favourites, so tuck in to one scrummy pumpkin masterpiece.


  • 1 small pumpkin*
  • 200g light brown sugar*
  • 200g self raising flour
  • 175g margarine or butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons mixed spice
    1 to 2 teaspoons ginger

* Instead of these you could use a tin of pumpkin mix Pumpkin tray bake


  1. Line a 15cm by 20cm tray, and preheat the oven to 160oC.
  2. Simmer your pumpkin, spices and sugar on a low heat for about 5 mins, or until the pumpkin is cooked. Allow the mixture to cool for 30 minutes, then blend to a smooth paste.
  3. Using the all in one method, mix the eggs, flour and butter to a good batter.
  4. Slowly add the pumpkin mixture to the batter and combine well.
  5. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Once cooked, remove from the oven and cool. You will find the mixture dense and creamy textured, similar to a brownie.
  7. Add some whipped cream, or icing, or leave them plain. Enjoy!
