Flower Shaped Squash Kugel

Flower Shaped Squash Kugel

In honor of the spring planting, this Shabbat I’m making my famous Flower Shaped Squash Kugel, so named because I make it in this cute silicone flower shaped pan. Every time I bring it out everyone always says “Oooh, look at the pretty flower shaped Kugel!” They really do! It’s a family favorite, and everyone loves cutting off a petal sized serving. I love it because it’s healthy (squash), and incredibly easy to make. Using the silicone pan is a plus too because I don’t have to grease it (silicone is naturally non-stick), its easy to clean, and easy to store – I just roll it up and put it in a drawer.

  • ServingsServings


  • 2 packages cooked winter squash, defrosted and drained (10-ounce packages)
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup sugar or splenda
  • ½ cup soy milk, preferably vanilla flavored
  • 3 large eggs
  • Non-stick vegetable spray (if using non-silicone pan)


Preheat oven to 350° F.

If not using a silicone pan, spray a 9” round pan with non-stick spray.  Set aside.

Place the squash in a large glass bowl.  Add the flour, sugar, and soy milk.  Whisk until smooth.  Add the eggs and blend until thoroughly combined.

Pour squash mixture into pan.

Bake for 45-60 minutes until completely set.

Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.  If using a nifty silicone flower shaped pan, invert onto serving dish and serve to amazed guests.
