Kabocha Squash Purin Cake for Halloween (Pumpkin Pudding)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1.5hr
Number of servings: 15cm (6inch) round cake pan

40g (1.4oz.) granulated sugar
1 tbsp. water
((Kabocha Custard))
350g (12.5oz) Kabocha (Japanese squash)
3 eggs
vanilla extract
60g (2.1oz.) granulated sugar
300ml milk

1. Mix granulated sugar and water in a saucepan by tilting the pan. Then simmer until the sauce is browned. (Do not mix it with a spoon but tilt the pan to mix it. The sugar will recrystallize if you mix it with a spoon.)
2. Pour the sauce into the cake pan before it gets hard.
((Kabocha Custard))
1. Wrap Kabocha with plastic wrap and microwave at 600w for 8 minutes. Scoop out the Kabocha flesh with a spoon. Then strain through a strainer.
2. Beat eggs in a bowl, then mix in a few drops of vanilla extract.
3. Add milk and sugar in the saucepan (which you made the caramel), then heat until warm. *you can clean off the caramel at the same time, not to waste it.
4. Mix in the warm milk mixture (4.) into the egg mixture (3.). Add the mixture into the mashed Kabocha. Then strain through a strainer to make it smooth.
5. Pour the mixture over the caramel in the cake pan.
1. Preheat the oven to 170C (338F).
2. Place the cake pan on a baking sheet. Pour some hot water (half the height) into the baking sheet. Bake at 170C (338F) for 50 minutes.
3. Place it on a wire rack to cool and put in the fridge until cold. Flip it over onto a plate to serve.

Note: You can grease the pan with some oil or butter so the pudding will slip out easily.
