Pumpkin Cake

Last week we were given a crown pumpkin from out of the school kitchen garden.  It really needed to be cooked and eaten as it was beginning to rot.  After cutting it up, peeling and boiling it, we mashed it and made it into a pumpkin cake.

It was yummy!  If you want to try our nice moist spicy pumpkin cake here is the recipe:

125g butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup of cooked pumpkin pulp
2/3 cup milk
1 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well.  Add cooked pumpkin.  Mix in all the dry ingredients. Add in milk and mix till smooth.  Bake in a lined, greased baking tin for 45 minutes at 180 degrees C.
