Ingredients (Serves 10)

225g self-raising flour

2 heaped teaspoons Baking powder

100g apple syrup

3 teaspoons Cinnamon or Mixed spice

300g pumpkin puree

75g coconut oil

50g desiccated coconut


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. Mix pumpkin well with oil and maple syrup.
  3. Add the flour, baking powder and cinnamon, and combine well.
  4. Add any additional ingredients.
  5. Bake in a greased and lined loaf tin for 15 minutes, before checking. Cover with foil, if the loaf cake is browning. Bake for another 15 minutes (approximately).
  6. Allow to cool a little before slicing. It's delicious freshly baked but even yummier when it goes gooey the next day!
