Halloween Recipes, Pumpkin recipes-Kabocha Cream Cheese Mont blanc


Here’s another kabocha recipe I would like to share. Kabocha is not just suitable to make savory food. Since It has rich sweetness with less water content. Making pastry is also very suitable. This time I use kabocha to make mont blanc cake! It usually comes with lots of chestnut cream squeezed on the top to shape like a mountain. Just like mont blanc in the Alps. The problem with this dessert is that, you have to prepare lots of chestnut paste. And it’s very time consuming..Usually end up using canned chestnut paste and you may not be always able to find what you like. Using kabocha you can make paste so easily. And it tastes just as good as the one it’s made with chestnut! I especially like this nice warm orange color. It’s just perfect for this time of the year. Since it’s mini cupcake size, you can pack them in a box easily. Why not making some and give them as halloween gift!

It contents less water and has much concentrated flavor. Since it has very hard shell, it’s definitely not for a curving! This time I processed kabocha into puree and mix into souffle base. The result is fantastic. Though it has rather heavy and rich texture, with the meringue mixed in, it changes into nice light texture in the oven! Make sure to dig in as soon as it comes out of the oven. Don’t miss out this wonderful texture and flavor!!

 Halloween is just around the corner. If you are still not too sure what to make for halloween dessert. You can treat yourself with this! I got this beautiful kabocha. Couldn’t resist to make many dishes with it. It has nice dark yellow flesh and contents lots of concentrated sweetness. It’s very suitable to make not jus stew but many pastries.
