This delicious pumpkin and prune cake is a perfect way to use your left over mashed pumpkin.

Ingredients (serves 12)

  • 125g butter
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup cold mashed pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped prunes
  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1/4 cup milk


  1. Pre-heat oven to moderate 180 (or 160 fan forced). Cream butter and sugar, and add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  2. Stir in orange juice, pumpkin and prunes.
  3. Stir in sifted flour alternately with the milk. Stir until smooth.
  4. Grease and flour a round cake tin or springform pan, and bake in a moderate oven until brown and firm to touch, about 45 mins. I have a fan-forced oven which seems to run quite hot so I cook mine at 160 degrees.
