I have been trying my hand at this recipe the whole week. So I had pumpkin tart for dinner the whole week. No surprise that I didn’t even mind. It’s that delicious…
I had this recipe for pumpkin tart handed over from my very talented mother in law, and as I was paging through endless magazine cut outs (as old as the mountains) and hand written recipes and notes I decided that this one has to make it to the blog.
It consists of mashed pumpkin combined with egg, self raising flour and cream – sweetened with naturally good for you dates – and finished off with a spoon full of burnt butter and crispy sage.
The combination is incredibly satisfying and not very sweet – so if you are more of a sweet tooth you can add a little cinnamon and sugar as it comes out the oven.
This Pumpkin and Date pie can be served as a side with your normal roasts or braai. You can also serve it hot as it comes out the oven or cold if you so prefer. Either way, this pie is very tasty and a great addition to the dinner table. Have you ever tried a Pumpkin Tart before? Let me know what you think in the comments below! Happy Friday!
