Wonderful way to get kids to eat squash. I've made this for years, and haven't found anyone who didn't like it. Its creamy, easy and delicious.I used to tell my kids it was a dessert pudding, and it was years before they realized they were eating squash. It has a nice vanilla taste. You can use splenda as a substitute for the sugar. Hint: Precook your squash by peeling, seeding, cubing and boil it in enough water to cover it, for about 20 minutes, then drain throughly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add margarine, sugar, vanilla, salt, flour, eggs, and milk to squash and mix well.
  2. -Pour mixture into a buttered 9" X 13" casserole dish.
  3. -Bake in 375 degree oven for 25 minutes, or until slightly golden brown and a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. -Serve slightly warm with whipped cream.

Oh my goodness yummy! This may replace pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. Well, maybe be a companion. DH loves Pumpkin Pie. I added about 1 tsp of cinnamon, 4 shakes of ginger and 2 shakes of nutmeg to this for a little more flavor depth, but the taste test (sans eggs in mix) without those spices was still really good. IMO the spices bounced it up to GREAT! Maybe enter it in a bake-off somewhere.

[b]FANTASTIC![/b] You'd think you were eating a peach dessert if this had some peach flavoring in it. This is so very good you must try this recipe. We try a new zucchini and yellow squash recipe each night. This is one we will be keeping around to make again. Thank you for posting!! 5 stars and 2 thumbs up for this one!

The squash stayed intact after cooking and baking and the end product was a dryer dessert. Still very good. Now you can decide how you'd like to cook your squash. I think I'll go back to the stove top method that way folks will not know that it is squash in the dish since it gets cooked down.
