These are kabocha pumpkin souffles I made yesterday. I know. It’s not Halloween yet. But I just felt like making a dessert with the kabocha pumpkin which I had bought the day before.
I used a Japanese recipe, because I thought it was safe to stick with the recipe that called for this particular type of pumpkin. But this was not a great success. The souffles did not rise as much as I wanted them to, and did not turn out as moist as I expected. Also, they tasted rather bland to me, so I made sherry sauce with sherry, sugar and butter.
I liked the sauce very much, but I have to admit that it almost hid the mild, natural flavor of the pumpkin.
Oh well... Better luck next time.
