Baking with your Halloween pumpkin

We all know how much fun it can be carving out a pumpkin, but once the insides have been scooped out, many throw the good stuff away – not knowing of the tasty baking treats you can make with the pumpkin.

Pumpkin is one ingredient that really sums up autumn, whether it’s to carve or to bake. Here are some appetising ideas for you to experiment with to make sure your pumpkin doesn’t go to waste:

Pumpkin pies

Pumpkin pie is a favourite during this time of the year. They ‘scream’ of autumn! But how about packing all the flavour into single bite-size pieces like mince pies?

Pumpkin cupcakes

If you like cupcakes, then this one might be for you. This bake has a light, almost melt-in-the-mouth texture (similar to carrot cake) and you’ll find it difficult to resist. Add pumpkin as well as some ginger to your cake mix.

Pumpkin cookies

Pumpkin cookies are a must try this Halloween. Not only are they the perfect alternative to hand out to trick or treaters, they are great to stash away in your own tin. Pumpkin gives a soft chewy texture to the cookie.

Pumpkin loaf

If you’re in the mood for something more savoury, try creating pumpkin loaves or rolls. Adding ginger and cinnamon gives a gentle heat that is delicious during these autumn days.

We have four bakeries in Corby and provide a business catering service that delivers directly to offices or venues. As well as rolls and sandwiches, we can also supply savouries, crisps, confectionery, fruit and fresh cream.

Be sure to pop into our Corby bakery around Halloween for some seasonal treats. If you have any questions about our range or catering services call us today on 01536 203682.
