Pumpkin, Ginger & Lemon Jam


500 Grms Diced Pumpkin
500 grms sugar
Half Lemon
5 cm Piece Ginger



Place diced pumpkin in a bowl and pour over sugar.  Stir it around to coat the pumpkin. Cover and leave at room temperature overnight


The next day the liquid should be pretty well liquified


Dice the lemon and remove any seeds then blitz it in a blender.  I used our little one I use on the caravan inverter.  Grate the ginger then place the pumpkin mix, lemon and ginger in a camp oven and bring to a rolling boil.


Keep it boiling for 30 minutes stirring frequently, then mash the pumpkin to the desired consistency you want your jam


Bottle while hot in sterilised jars. This mixture made me two 300 ml jars


Beautiful with a cup of tea and a nice on hot toasted crumpet with butter

Ginger and Walnut Carrot Cake


For the cake

200g      plain flour
1 tsp      baking powder
˝ tsp      bicarbonate of soda
2 tsp      ground ginger
Ľ tsp      fine sea salt
175g      soft light brown sugar
2      large eggs, at room temperature
200ml      vegetable oil, plus more for greasing
200g      carrots, peeled and coarsley grated
100g      walnut pieces, roughly chopped or crumbled
75g      crystallised ginger, finely chopped

For the icing

100g      unsalted butter, soft
100g      icing sugar, sieved if lumpy
1 tsp      cornflour
100g      full-fat cream cheese, fridge-cold
1 x 15ml tbsp      fresh ginger, coarsely grated
To decorare:
25g      walnut pieces, roughly chopped or crumbled
25g      crystallised ginger, finely chopped


1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/150°C Fan and grease the sides and line the base of your springform cake tin with baking parchment.

2. Put the flour, baking powder, bicarb, ground ginger and salt into a bowl and fork well to mix thoroughly.

3. Beat the sugar, eggs and oil in another large bowl until they are completely mixed together, then gradually add the flour mixture, scraping the bowl you’re beating them in to rescue and incorporate any flour clinging to the edges. At this stage the mixture may seem alarmingly stiff, but the carrots will loosen it up. So, beat in the carrots and then fold in the 100g of prepared walnuts and 75g of crystallised ginger, until everything is evenly combined.

4. Spoon and scrape into the prepared tin. Don’t worry if it looks as if you haven’t got nearly enough batter, as the cake will rise well as it bakes. Smooth the top and pop in the oven (this is when to make the icing, see step 5) for 45–55 minutes. When it’s ready, the cake will be set and golden brown on top, beginning to shrink away from the edges of the tin. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool in its tin.

5. As soon as the cake’s in the oven, get on with the icing. Beat the butter and icing sugar together and when creamily combined, beat in the cornflour, followed by half the cream cheese. Once that’s
incorporated, beat in the remaining half. Be careful at all times not to over-beat or the icing will get too runny. Starting with the grated ginger on a plate, get out a piece of paper towel and, moving quickly, spoon the grated ginger into the centre, bring up the edges of the paper, holding them together to form a little swag bag, and press on it over the bowl to squeeze out the intense ginger juice. Beat this into the frosting in its bowl. Cover with cling film and refrigerate.

6. When the cake is completely cold, take the icing out of the fridge for about 20 minutes, by which time it will have softened to a still thick but spreadable consistency. Beat briefly to help this along, and make sure it’s smooth. Release the cake from its tin and sit it on a cake stand or plate. Spread the frosting on top, swirling it a little, then sprinkle the chopped walnuts and ginger on top.

Gingerbread Cake

250g butter
465g golden syrup
150g brown sugar
4 cups SR flour
3 tbs ground ginger
1 tbs ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground cloves
4 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
Buttercream to ice/layer

Preheat camp oven to about 180°. Place butter, syrup and sugar into a saucepan and cook, stirring for 5 minutes until the sugar dissolves. Allow to cool for 10 minutes then mix together with remaining ingredients (except the buttercream). Place in CO and bake for about an hour until a skewer comes out clean. Place on a rack and allow to cool completely. Cut cake in half and start layering with buttercream. I did 2 cakes to get 4 layers
