bolo di pampuna – Antillean pumpkin pie

door Linda Terrizzi

Bolo di pampuna is a delicious spicy Antillean pie made from pumpkin. In the fall, few things are more delicious than pumpkin. In the Antilles, this ingredient is also widely used for desserts and pastries. There are the famous ones arepa di pampuna - and this delicious cake!

We use in this bolo di pampuna lots of spices. This gives the cake a bit of a gingerbread-like taste. The spiciness of the spices finds a nice fresh counterpart in the cream cheese frosting (glaze).



Due to the use of cream cheese, the cake must be kept in the refrigerator. However, it is better if it is allowed to come to room temperature before serving.

Ingredients:

FOR THE CAKE:

  • 5 eggs
  • 400 grams of sugar
  • 200ml sunflower oil
  • 400gr (cooked) mashed pumpkin
  • 500gr flour
  • 1 sachet of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ginger powder
  • a pinch of ground cloves (optional)
  • butter for greasing

FOR THE GLAZE:

  • 2 cups of cream cheese / philadelphia (2×200 gr.)
  • 50 grams of melted butter
  • 400gr powdered sugar
  • a few drops of almond essence
  • 50 grams of walnuts, roughly chopped

Preparation bolo di pampuna:

First preheat the oven to 175 degrees. Then grease a large baking tin with butter (approx. 26-28 cm diameter)

Now mix the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin puree in a large bowl.

Then sift the flour, baking powder, salt and spices into another bowl and stir them together.



Finally add the flour to the egg mixture and stir well until a homogeneous batter is formed.

Now pour the batter into the baking tin and bake in about 45-50 minutes. (To test the doneness, you can insert a needle in the center of the cake. When it comes out clean, the cake is ready.)

Then take the cake out of the baking tin and let it cool.

Meanwhile, mix the cream cheese, melted butter and icing sugar. Then add the almond essence and put this mixture in the fridge.



Once the cake has cooled, you can cut it in half once. Now spread a third of the frosting over the bottom half of the cake and replace the top half.

Finally, use the remaining two thirds of the icing to smear the cake.

Now sprinkle the cake with the chopped walnuts. Enjoy your meal!
