Pumpkin or squash cake is a traditional sweet dessert, often eaten especially during the all saints day in the Philippines. The pumpkin is a symbol of harvest time and featured also at Halloween. The cake consists of a milk, sugar and squash or pumpkin.
Cooking Directions :
- Add 1 lbs. of peeled cubed sweet squash into the water and boil until they’re soft all the way through, which should take about 15-20 minute.
- Let the squash cool until you can handle them. Smashed the flesh with potato smasher or 2 pieces of fork. Use a food processor, if you prefer.
- In a deep panl. Add 1 can of evaporated milk and 1/2 cups of sugar. Stir well until sugar completely dissolved.
- Pour the condensed milk and add the mashed squash, Mix the squash and other ingredients until the mixture is smooth. Add lemon rind, simmer in medium heat.
- Stir the contents of the pan gently but continuously. Keep going until the halayang kalabasa absorbs all the liquids, separates from the pan and becomes a thick, somewhat sticky paste.

Cooking Tips :
- Place the halayang kalabasa in the dish and store in the refrigerator to cool.
