Nusät Italian Savory Pumpkin Cakes

The origins of this cake seems to be found until the middle age as this cake was served in the Lombardia (Northern Italian region) around  the 23rd of December as the last of a 7 course meals.

We suppose that at this time not many could afford expensive ingredients, but in the last time this cake became richer and richer including different kind of nuts, raisins, almonds or sweet ingredients as fruits-mustard.

I will present you a simple recipe based on the ingredients available at that time. I added the nutmeg as this ingredients may have been THE ingredient which gave the name to the dish.

Usually this is baked as a single cake, but I decided to make a variation and make 4 single portions.

You need:

  • 1000-1200 g Pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 60 g breadcrumbs
  • 60 g parmigiano cheese, freshly grated
  • 1 egg
