  • 1 cup All purpose Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sage (dried)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Thyme (dried)
  • 1 pinch Cinnamon
  • 1 pinch Nutmeg
  • 2 pinches Chilli Flakes
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Cut sugar pumpkin in half, scoop out seeds (they are great roasted), rub a little bit of olive oil and some salt and pepper over the pumpkin flesh and roast skin side down until pumpkin is soft.
  3. Scoop pumpkin flesh into food processor and process until smooth puree is left.
  4. Measure out 1 cup of pumpkin puree, the rest can be use to make an awesome roasted pumpkin soup, pumpkin smoothie or in baking.

If you are using a home made pumpkin puree keep in mind that will likely be considerably more liquidy than store bought, so you will need considerably more flour as well. I used 1 1/2-2 cups, or more.
