How to make it

  • Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add the pumkin
  • Simmer gently for about 20 minutes or until the pumkin is tender
  • Drain well, reserve the liquid
  • Sieve the pumpkin into a bowl and beat to a puree
  • Cool until just warm, and then mix with the flour and salt
  • Dissolve the yeast in 6 tablespoons of the cooking liquid and leave in a warm place for about 10 minutes until frothy
  • Pour into the flour mixture and mix well to form a firm dough
  • If the mixture is too dry add a little more cooking liquid
  • Knead well until smooth, place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and leave in a warm place until doubled in size, about 2 hours
  • Knock back the dough, knead lightly, and shape into ball
  • Cover with lightly oiled plastic wrap and leave for about 1 hour until well risen
  • Preheat the oven to 425F
  • Using a sharp knife make a circular incision around the top of the ball about 2 inches from the edge
  • Place on a baking tray and cook for 45-50 minutes until deep golden and cooked through.
