Indian pudding is an old-fashioned New England dessert made with cornmeal and molasses. It’s delicious, but not the prettiest dessert, so we’ve given it a makeover by adding butternut squash and baking it. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Place squash half cut-side down on baking sheet. Bake 1 hour. Cool. Scoop flesh from skin, and purée in food processor.
2. Reduce oven heat to 275ºF. Coat 1-qt. baking dish with cooking spray.
3. Whisk together milk, cornmeal, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt in saucepan. Cook over medium heat 10 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from heat, and blend in butter. Stir in squash purée, brown sugar, and molasses. Pour into prepared baking dish, and bake, uncovered, 1½ hours, or until knife tip inserted in center comes out clean.
