Some recipes that call for butternut extract are Butternut Cake with Butter Pecan Frosting and Butternut Pound Cake. Butterbeer, a drink from the Harry Potter books, also calls for butternut extract. To make it, add 12 ounces of cream soda and 1 teaspoon of butternut flavoring to a mug, and whip together 1/4 cup of whipping cream and 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar until peaks form. Dollop the cream on top of the drink and serve.
To make Butternut Cake with Butter Pecan Frosting, beat 2 sticks of softened butter until it has a light color and fluffy texture, and then cream in 2 cups of granulated sugar until the mixture is well blended. Beat in 4 large eggs one at a time, and alternate between adding 1 cup of milk and 3 cups of self-rising flour. Fold in 3 tablespoons of butternut extract and 1 cup of chopped pecans. Spoon the batter into three greased round cake pans dusted with flour, and bake the cakes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 to 35 minutes.
While the cakes cool, cream together an 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese and 1 stick of softened butter, and then mix in 4 cups of confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon of butternut extract. Add 1/2 cup of pecans before frosting each layer of cake with the frosting before adding on the next layer.
