My first #PumpkinWeek offering: Sankaya. Sankaya is a Thai pumpkin custard. Think a coconut-y pumpkin pie without the crust...baked inside the pumpkin. I knew that was how I wanted to kick off this 6-day event. Enjoy. Mine is non-traditional for 2 reasons: I added in some lemongrass and I baked mine. Typically, it's steamed.
- One small organic pumpkin
- 4 eggs
- 1 C organic coconut cream
- 1/2 C organic blonde coconut sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 t minced lemongrass
- 1 t ground cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Wash and try your pumpkin. Cut a circular opening in the top just as you would start a jack-o-lantern.
Scoop out all of the pumpkin insides with a spoon. Then rinse one more time - and dry - if you like.
Whisk together the coconut cream, eggs, sugar, lemongrass, salt and cinnamon. Place the pumpkin a rimmed baking dish; I usually use a pie pan. Pour the custard into your hollowed out pumpkin.
Cover the pumpkin with foil and place in the oven for 90 minutes. Uncover and continue baking till the custard is puffed and firm to the touch. Mine took a total of 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Once it's done, allow your sankaya to cool a little bit before touching it. Slice into individual pieces and enjoy!
