Homemade pumpkin pie
Homemade pumpkin pie – easy dish, the recipe of which is in the cuisine almost all peoples of the world. Not for nothing, after all pumpkin is a vegetable not only very useful but also relatively cheap, and make his meals – a pleasure.
To prepare this very simple but very delicious pumpkin pie, or as it would be more correct to call it, Rustic pumpkin pie, I really, really love. I use this recipe if possible, several times per season, because pumpkin (and this is the main ingredient) is on sale for almost six months. So today we have on the menu – very ordinary, a little rough, "rustic" pumpkin pie.
And to prepare it you will require:
• 900 grams (or so) pumpkins
• 150 ... 200 grams (it all depends on the candy, the pumpkins, as well as your likings) granulated sugar,
• heaping tsp of baking powder (or a little less – common soda, quenched with vinegar),
• and a good large pinch of (this is important, otherwise the whites get whipped worse), salt.
That's all you might need.
The first thing for a couple, cook until tender (for me it took 20 minutes) the pumpkin. This is important because excess moisture it should not remain, but to do it in a steamer or in a colander over a saucepan with water – decide for yourself.
Pumpkin now needs to cool to room temperature (I separated from her a little more juice, which I immediately leaked), and then mash into a puree. You can do this with a mixer or blender "in the dust", but I wanted to make this pumpkin pie was a small pieces of vegetable (it is all the same village), so it is.
Now add to it:
• the egg yolks,
• wheat flour,
• baking powder,
and all together, well kneaded.
Whites with the salt easy beat well (blender resourceful this is a must),
and only then add sugar. Again whisk all together thoroughly,
Pour all into shape (I used silicone, so no grease it with oil, nor lay a baking paper did not have), and put in a preheated 190 degree oven, on middle shelf.
Bake for a long time (30 ... 35 minutes), and the usual readiness check with a toothpick that was not wet.
Take out of the oven and leave for 15 to 20 minutes to cool down.
Then easy sprinkle our delicious and very orange, pumpkin, homemade Rustic pie with powder sugar,
cut off a piece, and with a fresh black tea (preferably with lemon) is served. And believe me, renounced supplements will not be exact.
That's all, Bon appetit!

Don't be alarmed if you notice that in the center of the cake filling still looks raw, as it should be.
