Cooking pumpkin:

Step 1: prepare the pumpkin.

Rinse the pumpkin under running water. Cut with a knife into 2 halves, using a tablespoon, pull out the seeds. Peel the pumpkin from the peel and cut into arbitrary pieces with an approximate diameter up to 2 by 2 centimeterscan be more or less. Place the pumpkin slices in a deep pan, sprinkle with sugar and pour clean distilled water. Turn the stove on to the middle level and place a saucepan with pumpkin on it. Stir pumpkin slices periodically with a kitchen spatula so that they do not burn to the bottom of the pan. Stew pumpkin 30 - 35 minutes until fully prepared under a closed lid, by consistency, it should become soft. Then drain the water.

Step 2: grind the pumpkin and lay sugar, sour cream, butter and eggs.

Place the steamed pumpkin in the blender bowl and beat until puree consistency at high speed for 2 to 3 minutes. Set a fine sieve over a deep bowl, discard the pumpkin mass into it and let the excess liquid drain. Then transfer the chopped and already thicker mass from the pumpkin into a separate deep bowl. Add the remaining sugar and sour cream to the resulting mass. Beat the ingredients again with a hand blender for 2 - 3 minutes. Then add melted butter and chicken yolks. Beat the resulting mass for 3-4 minutes to splendor.

Step 3: beat the protein.

Whisk the egg whites in a separate deep bowl with a hand blender into a thick white foam. Beat as much time as needed, the protein should stand, and not drain from a large spoon. Gently inject whipped protein into the pumpkin mass, mixing the ingredients clockwise with a tablespoon. Do this very slowly so that the protein gradually mixes with the rest of the ingredients, but does not lose its splendor.

Step 4: bake a pumpkin.

Cover the non-stick baking dish with baking paper, and for safety, oil it with butter, helping yourself with a clean hand. Pour the cooked pumpkin dough into the mold and place it in the oven, preheated to 180 - 190 degrees. Bake a cake about 1 h 10 minutes - 1 hour 30 minutes to a golden crust on the surface of the pie. Inside, the pumpkin should be soft with a semi-liquid consistency. Let the finished cake cool directly in the baking dish. After it cools down very carefully remove it from the pan by lifting 4 edges of the baking paper at the same time. Place the pumpkin on a cake dish and enjoy tasting.

Step 5: serve the pumpkin.

Pumpkin is served warm on a cake platter. This type of pie dessert is cut into portions with a sharp knife dipped in honey or sugar syrup. Served pumpkin with sour cream or thick cream whipped with sugar. A delicious and healthy dessert for loved ones and relatives. Enjoy your meal!
