Torta de Zapallo: Dessert from Ecuador


Because Ecuadorians love desserts, they do them very sweet and with incredible ingredients, and they end up being something exquisite!


2 pounds pumpkin pieces, cut in cubes, (it can be any yellow pumpkin)
¾ cups milk cream
1 ¼ cup raisins
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter
1 1/3 cup of sugar
1 cup of rum
4 well beaten eggs


Cook the pumpkin until tender, some 20 minutes. Take all the water from them, then mash them well, add the cinnamon, the sugar the cream and half the butter. Take it to the fire again so that the sugar dissolves completely and the mixture gets firm. Let it cool well before adding the other ingredients, the raisins and the eggs. With the extra butter, (the spoon and a half) butter the oven dish and then put the pumpkin mixture in it. Put it into a moderate heat oven for an hour and ten minutes, or until it is golden on top. When it is taken out from the oven, pour the rum over it. You can add either whipped cream when serving it or dulce de leche on top of it. - South American Foods and Desserts
