Food: Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin PieAs one of us is from America and most British have never tasted pumpkin pie, it was time to attempt one of my holiday favorites. After adapting the family recipe to only use the scale we have on the boat, we came to the following recipe which turned out to taste fairly similar to the original, even the British enjoyed it.


  • 1 can of pumpkin – we found ours at Whole Foods in London or it has been spotted by neighbors in the American section of some stores.
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 grams caster sugar
  • 1/2 little spoon for making tea of salt
  • 1/2 little spoon for making tea of cinnamon
  • 1/4 little spoon for making tea of ginger
  • 365 grams of milk
  • 1 pie crust – either make yourself, or pick up in the frozen section of the shop


  1. Turn the oven to 218 (celsius) or gas mark 7 to start to heat up
  2. Beat the eggs and pumpkin together in a sauce pan
  3. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix well
  4. Add the milk
  5. Place the mixture on the stove on medium heat, gas mark 2 and start stirring
  6. Stir for a good few minutes, about 20 or so, until the mixture starts to have little bubbles emerge
  7. Place the crust into the pie plate
  8. Poor the mixture into the crust
  9. Place in the oven for 12 minutes
  10. After 12 minutes, turn the oven to 176 (celsius) or gas mark 4 and allow the pie to bake for another 45 minutes or so
  11. Take the pie out of the oven and test to make sure a knife comes out clean when placed into the middle of the pie, place back in the oven if needed
  12. ENJOY – and if baked on a boat, enjoy with a slight slant
