Description

This all-local (minus the spices) recipe tastes like pumpkin pie in a bowl.

Ingredients

1/2 teaspoon
cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon
ginger
1/8 teaspoon
nutmeg
1 pinch
clove
1 1/4 cup
milk
1/3 cup
maple syrup
2  
egg whites
1  
egg
3/4 cup
squash, winter

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix together pureed squash and spices. Whisk in milk, maple syrup, and eggs, blending well. Pour the mixture into a 1 or 1 ½ quart baking dish.

Put dish in roasting pan and pour hot or boiling water in roasting pan so it reaches halfway up the dish.

Place in oven and bake for 1 or 1 ¼ hours, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Serve warm or chilled.

Notes

Caroline Homan, City Market's Food Education Coordinator loves this recipe with maple syrup. She tested it and used 2 whole eggs and 1 egg white and it was great that way too.
