This sweet pumpkin bread is from a Naver webtoon called “Do You Wanna Come Inside for A Bite?” One of the characters, Mie, was craving simple carb so Itae made this bread for her. But I got no one to make it for me so… 🙁 Scoop out seeds and pulp with a spoon. It’d be nice if we can use these seeds and pulp as well. Is it just me? Am I the only one who thinks this is such a waste? Cut the prepared sweet pumpkin into appropriate pieces. Microwave for 8 minutes(4 minutes at once). Steamed pumpkin, done! Use a microwavable lid to cover the bowl when you’re cooking sweet pumpkin with a microwave. Or use plastic wrap and poke little holes so that the pumpkin can come out completely cooked through. It is extremely hot right after you pull it out of a microwave. So do not peel the skin right after, as I’m doing in the video like an idiot, wait for it to cool and peel the skin. It was so hot 🙁 By the way, you know that the skin is super delicious, right? I removed the skin to get the bright yellow color for the video but you can leave it! Just don’t forget to rinse the skin thoroughly under water! Separate one egg. Add the yolk to the prepared pumpkin. Mash them together. Add honey to your taste. You don’t have to follow the recipe. The amount of honey is totally up to you 🙂 You didn’t forget the separated egg whites, right? Make meringue using a hand mixer. There must be my man out there who’d beat egg whites for me… Somewhere… Combine the sweet pumpkin mixture to the meringue. In webtoon, he used milk to adjust the thickness but I didn’t add any because I thought meringue would be enough. Fortunately, I was right 🙂 (You can adjust thickness to your liking!) Add almond slices! Deliciousness added 50 points, texture added 100 points. I bet I’m gonna gobble this as soon as it’s done. Use any glass container lying around in you house and transfer the mixture into the container. The webtoon says I shouldn’t put too much cause it rises but it didn’t puff up that much. Maybe because the mixture wasn’t enough… Top it off with some almond slices and some steamed sweet pumpkin slices to make it similar to the ones in the webtoon as much as possible! Microwave for 5 minutes but check with a toothpick if it’s cooked as it’s microwaved. And… Tada! You get these gorgeous looking bread! The mixture sort of shrinks as it’s microwaved, so go around the rim with a knife gently, flip it over and it’ll come out very easily! You can make it into smaller portions for one person and just dig right into it without taking out of the container. You can use sweet potato or potato instead of sweet pumpkin! Modify the recipe to your taste and give it a try!
