Method

  • Start by taking the butter out of the fridge and allow it to soften at room temperature for an hour, or at least while you weigh / prepare the other ingredients. Pre-heat your oven to 180C (or 160C for a fan oven)
  • Place the butter, sugar, ginger and vanilla in a medium bowl and whisk until creamy. If you are using Demerara sugar, it will remain somewhat crunchy at this stage, that is ok.
  • Add the egg and mix well. Then add the pumpkin puree and mix until well combined too. The mixture might look like it is curdling, that is ok.
  • Sieve the flour in and mix, then finally add the chopped pecans and white chocolate, and mix those in too.
  • Spoon your batter into a prepared square or rectangular cake tin : either buttered and lightly dusted with flour, or lined with baking parchment.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick or a skewer inserted into the cake comes out dry.
  • Allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes or so, then on a wire rack or a chopping board for a further 15 minutes.
  • Cut into 9, 12 or 16 squares and add Halloween decoration of your choice.
