Easy Kabocha Cheesecake for Halloween

Easy Kabocha Cheesecake for Halloween

It's almost Halloween. Use kabocha squash and make the filling in just 5 minutes! (Easy, but nice and healthy!) How about it?

Ingredients: 15 cm mould

Kabocha squash
Cottage cheese (strained if available)
200 g
Heavy cream
100 ml
6 tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon
2 tablespoons


1. Cut the kabocha into bite-sized pieces and sprinkle a little water. Place in a heatproof container and microwave until soft. Preheat the oven to 360℉/180℃ .
2. In a mixer, blend the softened kabocha and all the ingredients (except for the flour).
3. In a bowl, combine the blended mixture with flour using a spatula, and mix in cutting motions. Pour into a mould lined with parchment paper.
4. Bake for 50 minutes at 360°F/180°C and it's done.
5. If you don't have strained cottage cheese, just blend in the mixer for a little longer!

Story Behind this Recipe

I made a healthy, seasonal cheesecake with cottage cheese and kabocha, which is perfect for Halloween. There are many recipes that require you to remove the kabocha rind, but I think that's a waste, so I use rind and all!
