  • 1 1/3 cups of butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 2 cups of light muscovado sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of mixed spice
  • 2 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 cup of sultanas

Directions:

How to make your Halloween Pumpkin Tray Bake:

  1. Heat your oven to 320°F.
  2. Zest your oranges using the fine grate of a box grater and set aside. Juice one of the oranges (you will need the juice of half an orange, plus 1 tablespoon).
  3. Now, use the coarse grate of a box grater to roughly grate your pumpkin flesh.
  4. Line a roasting / baking tray (around 30 x 20cm) with baking parchment.
  5. In a pan, melt 1 cup of the butter, and then pour into a medium sized bowl.
  6. Add the eggs to the melted butter and whisk well using a small balloon whisk. Then stir in half the orange zest and 1 tablespoon of orange juice, and set aside.
  7. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, mixed spice, bicarbonate of soda, sultanas and salt, stirring well with a flexible mixing spatula.
  8. Now, add the liquid egg, butter and orange mixture you set aside earlier to the dry ingredients, mixing well with a ‘spoonula’ spatula until combined.
  9. Stir in the grated pumpkin until well combined.
  10. Pour the batter into your lined baking / roasting tray and place into the oven for 30 minutes. The tray bake should be springy to the touch and golden in colour when ready.
  11. While the tray bake is baking, make your frosting. First of all, make sure your remaining 1/3 cup of butter is soft. If it is still hard, take a small bowl and use a Y-peeler to create thin soft slices – instant soft butter!
  12. In a large bowl, sift in the icing sugar, and then add the cheese, the softened butter, the remaining orange zest, and 1 teaspoon of the orange juice, and beat well using a small balloon whisk until smooth and creamy. Place your frosting into the fridge until needed.
  13. Allow the cake to cool for 5 minutes on a cooling rack after taking it out of the oven. Then prick it all over with a skewer, and drizzle over the remaining orange juice while it’s still warm. Allow to cool completely.
  14. Take the frosting out of the fridge. Use a frosting spatula to stir through to loosen the frosting, and then use it to spread the frosting over the top of your tray bake, creating peaks and swirls. Happy Halloween!

Really like this burger press its made good and durable and its so easy to use can't wait til burger night again.

Beverly Giere Stiles said: Cracked one day after receipt

This board cracked one day after receiving it. It was probably cracked already and I didn't see it until the next day. Customer service says they have shipped a replacement board. We will see how the replacement board holds up.

Mary B said: Great Can Opener

Can opener works great! I was struggling using an electric can opener for cans with liquid as it was so clunky and would splatter the liquid all over. I now use this can opener instead and it is smooth and easy to use. Wonderful product!

Jennifer Blackburn said: Great knife for many things

I use this knife for everything now. And it sounds very comfy to hold which means a lot to me.

Muntakim said: Awesome, will buy again!

These are one of the best sink strainers I have ever used. The ones I have used previously from other manufacturers tended to rust easily and were very flimsy. These sink strainers catches food particles flawlessly and fits well in my sink, and does not allow any particles to go underneath. These are quite easy to clean and so far has shown no signs of rust whatsoever. Highly recommend and will definitely buy again!
