Fresh pumpkin and the spice mix are undoubtedly the heroes of this cake. Preparing the fresh pumpkin does need the extra steps of boiling, draining and mashing. It’s very little effort for big reward.

If I have extra pumpkin I’ll often prepare ahead by boiling and freezing batches. Defrost and drain frozen pumpkin in a sieve over a bowl overnight. It’s then ready for the perfect bake the next day.

You’ll need to prepare ahead the Christmas Allspice needed for this recipe. Christmas Allspice is the essential pantry spice you’ll soon not be able to cook without.
