About this recipe: This is a quick and easy preparation that can be used for most any winter squash. Another option is to cook the squash whole, then slice it in half. Add the knob of butter and a sprinkling of sugar to each half and finish it off under the grill.


Serves: 2 

  • 1 medium acorn squash, halved and seeded
  • 25g butter
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown soft sugar
  • salt to taste

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
  2. Turn acorn squash upside down onto a baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven until it begins to soften, approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
  3. Remove squash from the oven and turn onto a plate so that the flesh is facing upwards. Divide the butter and brown sugar between the two halves and sprinkle with salt. Place squash in a baking dish (so the squash won't slide around too much) while baking.
  4. Place squash back in the oven and bake another 30 minutes.
