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!

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!!
