These mini savoury pumpkin loaves are really soft and tender with a nice crust, and are so moreish. They can be enjoyed as a weekday lunch with a seasonal salad or a bowl of soup, or as a snack throughout the day. Most pumpkin cake or bread recipes call for mashed pumpkins, but I decided to try this recipe and have a go at using grated raw pumpkin to create a lovely texture that's moist and a little chewier. Besides that, grated pumpkin will give you attractive flecks of orange in your baked goods.

  • 250 g Organic hokkaido pumpkin
    ©angiesrecipes
    , unpeeled and finely grated
  • 2-3 Red chilli peppers, finely sliced
  • 200 g Refined spelt flour
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder
  • 25 g Nutritional yeast flakes
  • 2 tbsp Fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3 Large eggs, separated
  • 120 ml Dry white wine (or milk)
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 8 x 5 g Butter for topping, optional
  1. Thoroughly wash the pumpkin. Pat dry with a kitchen towel and finely grate. Rinse the chilli peppers. Dry and chop finely. Prepare a mini loaf pan with 8 holes. For easy removal after baking, grease and line the holes with baking paper.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F with fan on. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and nutritional yeast in a mixing bowl. Seperate the eggs.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff. Set aside. In another mixing bowl, stir the egg yolks and white wine or milk until well combined.
  4. Stir in grated pumpkin, chopped chilli peppers, herbs and salt until incorporated. Fold in 1/3 of the whipped egg white to lighten up the batter. Now fold in the rest of the egg whites until fully combined.
  5. Divide the batter evenly among the 8 loaf pan holes. Top each with a piece of butter if using. Bake in the middle of hot oven for about 25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and Stand in pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.

Pumpkin recipes become popular at Halloween time in the US, but I don't think it's observed in Germany? Your idea of using grated pumpkin looks like a good one, giving lots more texture to the bread. I usually cook a Butternut Squash and then puree it, in order to get my 'pumpkin' flavoring, but your method looks easier!

Really like the idea to use grated pumpkin! I haven't tried that in recipes -- but I will. And speaking of recipes, this is such a terrific one. TONS of flavor, and really pretty. Thanks!

The grated pumpkin definitely gives a better texture to the cakes. I used pumpkin puree the last time I made muffins. They turned out ok but I know the texture cannot beat those made from grated pumpkin

Another beautiful recipe. The combination of the pumpkin with rosemary and chili is brilliant. And so cool the pumpkin is grated and not pureed. :-) ~Valentina

Angie, these little mini cakes have an amazing color. I'm sure grated pumpkin makes these super moist and flavorful! I've never worked with nutritional yeast, but I'm see more of it in recipes lately, I'll have to look it up! Gorgeous photos, as always Angie!!
