    Pumpkin & Salami Cheese Bake

    Leftover Salami and Sour Cream, that’s what I wanted to use up today. I instantly thought of cooking ‘Hungarian Salami, Boiled Eggs & Potato Sour Cream Bake’, but I decided to use Pumpkin. I didn’t want to bother making Boiled Eggs. So, what I did was very simple as you can read below. The result …

    Pumpkin Bavarois

    After my ‘Pumpkin Panna Cotta’ and ‘Pumpkin Creme Brûlée’ were so successful, I wanted to try another similar dessert, that is Bavarois. Bavarois is set with Gelatine like Panna Cotta, and the ingredients are almost identical with Creme Brûlée. I added 1 cup of pureed Cooked Pumpkin. This Bavarois tastes wonderful, looks pretty, and it …

    Pumpkin Bread

    This is another good way to use up your leftover Cooked Pumpkin. This bread doesn’t taste like Pumpkin, but it has the beautiful yellow colour and also the nutrients of the vegetable. The dough can be very soft and sticky. This is my favourite type of bread dough. Do not try to knead it if …

    Pumpkin Creme Brûlée

    My 1-cup-capacity Ramekins are slightly too large for my Creme Brûlée recipe. Today I added 1 cup pureed Pumpkin. The amount of a serve was perfect for my ramekin and Creme Brûlée was very yellow. Fortunately OR unfortunately, you won’t taste Pumpkin very much. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 1 cup pureed Cooked Pumpkin *smoothly pureed1/4 …

    Pumpkin Pancakes

    If you have some leftover cooked Pumpkin, it would be a good idea to mix it into Pancake batter. Today I had almost 1/2 cupful of Pumpkin, but it doesn’t matter how much to add. You can add more or less, just adjust the thickness of the batter with Milk. This recipe makes very thick …

    Pumpkin & Rum Raisin Ice Cream

    I have a super easy Ice Cream recipe ‘Azuki Ice Cream’. The ingredients are Tsubu-an (Sweet Azuki Paste) and Thickened Cream. I made this ‘Pumpkin Ice Cream’ in the same way. I first made sweet Pumpkin Paste and mixed it with whipped Cream. I wanted to add Rum rather than Vanilla, so I added Rum-steeped …

    Pumpkin Scones

    All my Scone recipes are based on Auntie Lorna’s Scone recipe. I needed to alter the amount of Milk for these scones because I added 1/2 cup pureed Pumpkin. It is a coincidence that these Pumpkin Scones have a strong resemblance to the famous coffee shops’ scones. I have never been to those coffee shops …

    Pumpkin Pound Cake

    As my Pumpkin Doughnuts were so successful, I wanted to bake a Pumpkin Cake. I looked for the recipes. Many of them require a lot of Spices. I decided to use my own Pound Cake recipe. I didn’t add any spices, but I added Rum. I think I could have added Rum Steeped Sultanas. Maybe …

    Pumpkin Doughnuts

    The other day I made leftover cooked Pumpkin into ‘Pumpkin Dango Dumplings’ using Glutinous Rice Flour. Today I used Regular Self-Raising and made it into Doughnuts. The process is almost identical. You mix the pureed Pumpkin with Flour. I added some Sugar for these Doughnuts. Makes 20 Balls Ingredients 100g Cooked Pumpkin *1/2 cup when …
