Isijingi – Pumpkin pudding
PREPARATION TIME 5–8 MINS
COOKING TIME 30–35 MINS

Cook the pumpkin/butternut in enough water to cover until soft enough to mash. Strain and reserve the water. Purée the pumpkin in a blender, gradually adding 2 cups of the reserved water. Place the pumpkin purée in a pot on medium heat. When it comes to the boil, whisk in the maize meal. Slowly stir through the butter, cream and cinnamon. Cook for about 15 minutes.
