31 Days of Halloween – Mixed Spice & Pumpkin Cake

31 Days of Halloween on sewhooked.com

We’re doing something a little bit different today on 31 Days of Halloween!  Below, you’ll find a fun recipe and video from my dear friend and fellow TTMTer, Cat Magraith.

The following Talk to Me Tuesday is a much-watch, with Cat’s young daughter Tara being the star of this Food Network worthy show!

Pumpkin cake!

As you probably noticed in her video, Cat is in Australia, so I’ve made a few recipe notations for my American friends. You’ll find those in italics. Her recipe is the bold text.

Pumpkin Cake

Sift dry ingredients into bowl and add remaining ingredients.

Mix well and spoon into loaf tin or muffin tins.

Bake for 30-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean.  I cooked 50 minutes at 350F, but I started checking around 40 minutes.

Optional: sprinkle powdered sugar on top or make a powdered sugar glaze with 1 cup of powdered sugar and 3 TBS of milk. Glaze when cooled.

Mixed Spice (my version)

There are LOTS Of recipes for Mixed Spice online. Use whatever works best for you. This is the version I currently have in my pantry.

Mixed Spice

  • 1 Tbs ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbs ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ground Ginger

Store in a container with a tight lid. Use as needed. This also makes a fantastic addition to butternut squash and sweet potatoes!

Here’s another recipe from BBC’s Good Food. Do you have a Mixed Spice recipe? I’d love to know what it is!
