We had some butternut squash come up "volunteer" in the garden this year and I've had to find ways to use it (did roasted paleo porridge and whipped so far). I don't know what kugel is but I DO what pumpkin pie is! This looked similar... I roasted the squash and then puréed the flesh when it was cooled. I used farm fresh eggs gluten free flour 1/4 cup organic cane sugar 1/2 cup pure maple syrup for sweetness 2 T. butter 2 T. coconut oil (melted) 1 t. cinnamon and 1 t. pie spice. Mine took about 45 minutes in the oven (mine is slow). I ate a piece immediately for breakfast. Delicious! Sort-of like a custard pie. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Too sweet? My (adult) kids thought so. I loved it but they thought it was too sweet and too eggy. It IS very rich/heavy. If the kids had liked it I'd give it 4 stars. Read More

Way too much flour. I get kugel from a local kosher restaurant and it is much lighter in texture. Next time I would roast the squash to increase the sweetness and cut down the sugar and flour by half. Read More

It tasted great but the consistency wasn't a hit! It was too rubbery thinking I must have done something wrong.. Over beaten or over cooked.... Who knows? Read More
