Steamed Butternut Squash Pudding

Photo: Anna Williams
Yield 12 servings (serving size: 1 steamed pudding and 4 teaspoons vanilla jack sabayon)
Blackberry chefs top this pudding with sabayon featuring vanilla-infused whiskey. At the Farm, the chefs flavor a 1.5-liter bottle of Jack Daniel's whiskey for three weeks. Our adaptation cuts the infusion time back to four days; you can let the mixture stand for even less time, though the vanilla flavor will be milder.

Ingredients

  • 1 (1-pound) butternut squash
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 9 ounces all-purpose flour (about 2 cups)
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Vanilla Jack Sabayon

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.

  2. Cut squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membrane. Place squash, cut sides down, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; bake at 400° for 55 minutes or until tender. Cool slightly. Scoop out squash pulp from skins; discard skins. Mash pulp.

  3. Preheat oven to 325°.

  4. Place sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time; beat after each addition. Add squash and juice; beat until combined.

  5. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk. Add flour mixture to squash mixture; beat until just combined. Spoon about 1/3 cup batter into each of 12 (6-ounce) ramekins coated with cooking spray. Place 6 ramekins in each of 2 (13 x 9-inch) baking dishes. Add hot water to pans to a depth of 1 inch. Cover pans loosely with heavy-duty foil coated with cooking spray.

  6. Bake at 325° for 22 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack. Serve with Vanilla Jack Sabayon.
