In order to prepare the pumpkin purée, clean the pumpkin, cut it into big chunks and steam until tender. Then mash it using a fork.

Preheat the oven at 180°C. In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. In another container combine all the other ingredients except for the walnuts: pumkin purée, oil, beaten eggs, water, honey and lemon peel. Add the latter mixture to the former and mix well but not too much.

At this point, add the walnuts and pour the mixture into the baking mould. Bake the pumpkin bread for about 50 minutes until well cooked.
