Pumpkin Pie



Serves 8 – 10

400 g butternut or pumpkin, peeled and cubed 60 g soft brown sugar (90 ml)
500 g sweet shortcrust pastry
Pinch salt

5 ml ground cinnamon
2 ml ground ginger

  1. Preheat oven to 200oC/ 180oC fan/Gas mark 6.
  2. Steam pumpkin in a colander over boiling water for 20 minutes.
  3. Place onto a baking sheet. Cover with brown sugar and bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool.
