    • 1 teaspoon dark brown soft sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon butter
    • 1 to 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
    2. Cut off the top of the pumpkin and scrape out seeds. Place the butter and brown sugar inside the pumpkin and sprinkle with cinnamon. Put the pumpkin top back on and place pumpkin in a roasting tray with a little water in the bottom.
    3. Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until tender.


    Try a red onion squash instead of pumpkin - they're the perfect size and in season from late August.

    Used different ingredients. The brown sugar/butter/cinnamon combination also works great in acorn squash... just cut them in half, scoop out the seeds, and fill. They can be cooked in the oven, like these, or in the microwave (covered) for 20-25 min., or until the flesh is easily pierced with a fork.  -  02 Nov 2009
