Pumpkin Puree

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 5 mins


  • 1 Pumpkin most varieties will work but I prefer butternut


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/360F.
  • Cut the Pumpkin into quarters.
  • These will be large pieces.
  • Place the pumpkin onto a baking tray, skin side up.
  • Bake in the oven for 45-60 minutes (the length of time will depend on the thickness of your pumpkin pieces).
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Remove the skin from the pumpkin and mash/purée the baked pumpkin.
  • The pumpkin will be moist.
  • Keep refrigerated.
  • Whilst the pumpkin is in the fridge some water may be released. Discard the water before using (otherwise your baked item will end up mushy).
