I’m all thrilled! Austrian supermarkets finally found out that they could start importing fruit and vegetable other than just bananas. This weeks highlight – acorn squash. Might sound weird to you but getting my hands on acorn squash is a rare occasion.
I looked at this cutie and immediately thought ‘you look like delicious dessert’! First chance I got the squash got stabbed, gutted and sprinkled with sugar :)
Super easy to make this dessert needs no cooking skills at all. So if you are looking for a quick way to bring some autumn to your table – that’s the way to go!
SWEET ACORN SQUASH
_ preheat oven to 205°C [400°F]
_ carefully cut squash in half [direction is up to you – I just like to do it this direction because it looks so nice]
_ place in the oven and bake for 1 hour [maybe 15 minutes longer if it’s a big squash]
_ once or twice spoon the sugar – syrup mixture over the pumpkin
_ once the top is nicely caramelized remove from the oven
_ let cool a little before serving
