  • 0.5  butternut squash peeled (for instructions go here)
  • 0.5 teaspoon cinnamon 
  •  egg whites 
  •  egg yolk 
  • 0.5 teaspoon ground ginger 
  • 0.5 cup cup heavy whipping cream 
  • 0.3 teaspoon nutmeg 
  • servings vanilla extract 
  • 0.3 cup milk whole

Equipment

  • bowl
  • baking sheet
  • sauce pan
  • oven
  • whisk
  • blender
  • ramekin
  • spatula

Directions

  1. Puree butternut squash with blender and set aside to let cool.In a small saucepan, heat cream, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla to a simmer.Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk yolks and sugar until pale yellow.
  2. Add a cup of the hot cream mixture very slowly into yolks while continuing to whisk.Then add yolks and cream back to saucepan and keep stirring over low heat.
  3. Mixture should thicken in a few minutes, then turn off heat and incorporate into squash puree.Preheat oven to 375 degrees, making sure the rack is near the bottom.
  4. Place a baking sheet in the oven.Butter your ramekins and dust the insides and rims with sugar.Then take egg whites in a clean bowl and whisk until glossy. It should form stiff peaks when you remove your whisk from the bowl, and should be able to hold the weight of an egg.Use a spatula to combine the egg whites scoop by scoop into the squash mixture, making sure they form a fully homogeneous mixture, but do not overmix.Carefully scoop your mixture into the ramekins up to the rims.
  5. Bake on lower rack for about 25 minutes, or until tops are golden brown.They should rise, but with firm tops and jiggly centers.
