We're so excited to welcome Spiced Pumpkin Pie season. To celebrate we have created this delicious Suki Spiced Pumpkin Loaf Cake. It really is the perfect Autumnal treat!

INGREDIENTS

200g all-purpose flour (sieved)

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

2 tsp Spiced Pumpkin Pie tea

300g pumpkin puree (you can make your own or buy from a supermarket)

110 ml vegetable oil

2 large eggs

100g granulated sugar

85g brown sugar

Pinch of salt

2 tsp. vanilla extract

METHOD

You can either use tinned pumpkin puree or make your own. We made our own and it's really easy. Just start by preheating the oven to 180 degrees. Then, cut the pumpkin in half and wrap each half in tinfoil. Place into the oven for one hour. While the pumpkin is cooking, you can line a loaf tin with parchment.

Next, grind Suki Spiced Pumpkin Pie tea into a powder. You can either use a coffee grinder or a mortar & pestle. (The coffee grinder is much quicker!) Ensure that powder can pass through a sieve.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground Suki Pumpkin Spiced Pie, then set this aside.

SPP CAKE 3

Don't forget about the Pumpkin in the oven!!

    Once the pumpkin is cooked, scoop the fleshy part out. Pop the soft, fleshy pumpkin into a food processer or a Nutri-Bullet and whizz. The pumpkin puree will contain a lot of juice. Line a sieve with some kitchen roll and squeeze the excess pumpkin puree through this.

Put the pureed pumpkin into a bowl with the oil, eggs, sugars, and vanilla. Then mix together.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the pumpkin mixture in the well. Stir just until combined (do not overmix) and transfer to prepared loaf pan.

 Bake in the center of the oven for about one hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack. Allow to cool completely before slicing. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
