Easy Pumpkin pie by Elsie & Dave

Dave's daughter Elsie and him came up with this recipe one Saturday afternoon using pumpkins from our farm. It's a delicious and easy cake to make that requires no baking. It tastes like an elegant cheese cake with a rich sweet filling, a biscuity base and topped with some chocolate chards.

Takes 40 minutes

Serves 8



  • 200 g Digestive biscuits
  • 80 g coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • 500 g pumpkin/squash (400g pumpkin puree)
  • 400 g vegan creamed cheese
  • 100 g coconut oil
  • 140 g maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Preheat oven to 180C
  • Peel the pumpkin and remove the seeds. Slice the flesh of the pumpkin into small bite sized pieces. Add them to a baking tray and bake for 25 minutes until cooked through.
  • Add the biscuits to the food processor and blend until they reach a breadcrumb like consistency (approx 1 minute). Add the coconut oil and vanilla extract (if using) and blend until incorporated (approx 30 seconds).
  • Transfer the blended base ingredients to a lined spring form cake tin or spring form pie dish. A spatula is easiest to ensure you get everything out of the food processor. Using a spoon spread it around evenly. Use the back of the spoon to compact it till it becomes firm and compact.
  • Wipe out the food processor. Add the roasted pumpkin to the food processor along with all the rest of the filling ingredients and blend until nice and smooth.
  • Using a silicon spatula transfer the filling onto of the base. Spread out so smooth and even.
  • Place in the fridge to set for 30 minutes.
