  • Place butternut squash, cut-side down, onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until very soft, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Allow squash to cool to room temperature.

  • Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Scrape flesh from butternut squash into a in a food processor until smooth. Add flour mixture, 1/4 cup white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg and process until smooth. Add egg yolks, 1 at a time, to squash mixture while continually processing.

  • Beat egg whites in a bowl using an electric mixer until stiff peaks form; fold into squash mixture. Pour mixture into the chilled dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and top springs back after pressing, about 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

This dish isn't very sweet, so you can add more sugar up to a cup total to get a sweet souffle.

You can sub 2 pounds well-cooked carrots pureed or mashed sweet potatoes for the squash. Use a little cardamom and orange zest instead of the cinnamon and nutmeg for a different flavor profile.
