This is a recipe that I saw ages ago in a Spanish magazine. It is not like the pumpkin pie that you traditionally have at Thanksgiving. It is less sweet but neverteless really good. I like that it is simple to do and has a beautiful autumn color. We had some today with coffee and it was wonderful.
Here is the recipe!
1/2 kilo of pumpkin chopped and skin removed.
1/2 cup sunflower oil
250 g sugar
250 g flour
16 grams baking powder
1 cinnamon stick
the rind of 1 lemon
Preheat oven to 180
Boil the pumpkin with in very little water along with the cinnamon stick and the lemon rind. When the pumpkin is softened, drain it and discard the cinnamon stick and lemon rind.
Place the pumpkin in a food processor and blend well until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend again until smooth.
Grease a mold with sunflower oil or butter and sprinkle lightly with flour. Pour the mixture in. Bake for about 45 minutes to and hour depending upon your oven and the size of the baking dish used. (Mine took about 35 minutes so just keep an eye on it. It will rise quite a bit then eventually sink as it cools down.)
Enjoy! xxxx Natascha
