Easy pumpkin pie

So. It’s two days after Halloween and guess what you can get cheap from the supermarket? Big bags of candy? Check. Sarah Palin masks? You betcha. Pumpkins? Hmmm…yes..pumpkins. And you know what you can make with pumpkins? Pie. Yummy, yummy pumpkin pie. Here’s how*:


  • 1 can pure pumpkin
  • 2 eggs
  • Single cream, 1 cup
  • Rum
  • Brown sugar, 1 cup
  • Ground cinnamon, 2 tsp
  • Ground ginger, 1 tsp
  • A sweet pie shell
  • Note: if you’re really hardcore you can of course always make your own pumpkin puree, create your own pie shell, and distill your own rum – but this recipe is called ‘easy’ for a reason

Mix sugar and spices together, beat in eggs and combine well. Throw in two glugs of rum, beat in the pumpkin and finally the cream.

Pour this filling into a pie shell and bake in an oven for 20 minutes at 230C. Turn the oven back to 175C and bake for an additional 25 minutes. Remove and check it’s cooked by sticking a knife in the middle of the pie – if nothing sticks, you’re ready to let it cool… and then eat!

*A big thanks to my Mom who passed this recipe on to me, and to my grandmother who passed it on to her.
