A caramel butternut squash torte would be the perfect dessert for this fall season. baked in a sweet pastry crust, you won't believe it's butternut squash!
What could be better this fall season than my Caramel Butternut Squash Torte?
It’s no secret that I love browsing through food magazine’s, and I’m not talking about those tired old publications that use to be the industry standard. You won’t find many US magazine’s in my house if you find any. What you will find is an assortment of British and Australian Publications, ranging from the BBC Good Food to Australia’s Delicious!
I will freely admit that two of my favorites are Donna Hay and Woman and Home “Feel Good Food” , not typically a man’s magazine but definitely worth the read. This particular recipe comes from Christmas edition of “Feel Good Food”, and that issue had so many wonderful creations that I bought it immediately, waiting until I got home to truly enjoy each delicious page (once you start drooling on the paper you buy it anyway). I kept buying Butternut Squash, thinking this would be the week that I made, but weeks turned into months, and finally, with spring on our doorstep, I figured it was now or next winter, and I just couldn’t wait that long to try this torte.
If you love fall desserts, take a look at my Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake.
I know with spring coming this isn’t exactly the time of year to be posting a recipe with winter squash, but if you can still get your hands on some, give it a try! The only thing missing from this dessert was a big dollop of fresh whipped cream, and if I had seasoned it up just a bit more, you would’ve sworn it was pumpkin, only lighter. The filling had a custard-like quality that left you feeling satisfied instead of overwhelmed, the perfect end to a meal!
