Traditional Pumpkin Pie



8 portion(s)

  • 500 g Pumpkin purée
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 70 g white sugar
  • 120 g brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp YIAH Pumpkin Pie Spice, (see tips for alternatives)
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 360 g thickened cream
  • 1 Uncooked Pie Base, (short crust pastry)

Recipe's preparation

    Preparing Pumpkin Puree
  1. Use Butternut Pumpkin (cut in half lengthways).  Scoop out seeds, and place cut side down on baking paper covered oven tray. 

    Bake pumpkin for around 1 1/2 hours at 180 degrees, or until fork or skewer is easily inserted through skin (pumpkin is soft).

    Allow to cool, scoop out cooked pumpkin pulp and stir/mash.

  2. Making Pumpkin Pie
  3. 1. Preheat oven the 220 degrees.

    2. Add 2 eggs and egg yolk to bowl and beat 15 sec/speed 4.

    3. Add sugars, salt, spice and lemon zest and combine 15 sec / speed 4.

    4. Mix in 500g of cooled pumpkin puree 20 sec / speed 5 or until smooth.

    5. Add cream through lid while mixing speed 1-2 and continue to beat together until well combined (20-30 sec).

    6. Pour completed mixture into uncooked pie base, and bake at 220 degrees for 15 minutes.  If outer edge of pie crust is darkening too quickly, at this point, cover (the outer edge only) with foil). Lower oven temp to 175 degrees, and continue to cook for a further 50 mins or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the pie comes out clean.

    7. Cool on a wire rack for 2 hours (until pie completely 'deflates' and is cool throughout).

    8. Refridgerate to chill, then with whipped cream.
