Ingredients
  • 1 (2-pound) butternut squash, peeled, seeds and strings discarded, and the flesh cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
Directions
  • In a microwave glass dish sprinkle the squash with 2 tablespoons water and microwave it, covered with microwave-safe plastic wrap, at high power (100 percent) for 7 to 10 minutes, or until it is very tender.

  • Transfer the squash to a bowl, with an electric mixer beat it with the butter and half the brown sugar until the mixture is smooth, and beat in the egg and salt and pepper, to taste.

  • Divide the mixture among 4 (1 1/4-cup) ramekins, sprinkle it with the remaining brown sugar, and microwave it, uncovered, at high power (100 percent) for 6 to 8 minutes, or until it is puffed and just set.
