In the kitchen
Pumpkin two ways
Note from Fred & Tess:
Mum always has lots of pumpkins from her allotment and we wanted to try making something with them. Once we combined all the ingredients we couldn’t agree on what to make!
As Mum is a fan of Masterchef Australia where they are always making things two or three ways we thought we would try it. BOL!
Fred- I made pumpkin pancakes,
Tess - I made pumpkin rock cakes.
We can’t decide which is better and neither could Mum and Dad as we made them taste them! BOL!
450g pureed pumpkin
300g wholemeal flour
1 medium egg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 180 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper or baking parchment
2. Mix, pumpkin, egg and cinnamon together and then add the flour and combine well.
Divide the mixture in half.
3. Use one half to make the rock cakes.
Place spoon size mounds on the paper and bake in the oven for 25 minutes until crispy on the outside but soft inside.
Remove from oven and leave to cool.
4. For the pancakes place a pawful of the mix in a non-stick frying pan and gently heat until the mixture hardens slightly, leave to cool.
We don’t know how long they keep fresh as they don't last long enough to store!
