  • 10 oz uncooked butternut squash, peeled, diced (2 cups)
  • 1cup(s) water
  • 2tspvanilla extract
  • 14Tbsppowdered sugar (3/4 c plus 2 Tbsp)
  • 2⁄3cup(s)all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄4cup(s)unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp baking soda
  • 1⁄8 tsp table salt
  • 1 1⁄2 oz bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped (70% cocoa)
  • 2 Tbs plight butter, cut up
  • 1 large egg(s)
  • 2 large egg white(s)
  • 1⁄4 cup(s) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsppowdered sugar
  • 1⁄4 cup(s) reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1⁄4 tspvanilla extract
  • 1⁄2 cup(s) pomegranate seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or nonstick aluminum foil so foil hangs over edges a little bit (or coat pan with cooking spray).
    Combine squash and water in a microwavable mixing bowl; cover with vented plastic wrap (or wax paper). Microwave on High until squash is fork-tender, 8 minutes. Mash squash with potato masher or large spoon; stir in 2 tsp vanilla extract and let cool until lukewarm.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, sift together 14 Tbsp powdered sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
  3. Combine chocolate and butter in a small microwavable bowl; cover with wax paper and microwave on Medium until chocolate softens and butter begins to melt, 15 seconds; stir until smooth.
  4. Stir melted chocolate into squash until blended; beat in egg and egg whites by hand. Gently fold in flour mixture just until blended.
  5. Pour batter into prepared pan; spread into an even layer. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging, 25 minutes. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
  6. While cake cools, in a small bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream until thickened. Add powdered sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in sour cream and vanilla just until blended.
  7. Remove cake from pan; remove parchment or foil. Cut into 12 pieces and serve topped with cream and pomegranate arils.

Serving size: 1 piece cake, 1 Tbsp vanilla cream and 1 Tbsp pomegranate arils
