Pumpkin Custard 2 layers


Pumpkin Custard 2 Layers
I had one cup of pumpkin left over from making
my Christmas cake. Here is a delicious dessert.
Six Servings
Preheat oven to 325.
Get a large baking pan for water bath

In the bowl of food processor place
1 c. pumpkin puree
6 eggs
6 TBS. Brown sugar sub. I use "Ideal"
1/4 c. sugar sub. I use 1/2 Splenda 1/2 Erythritol
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
¼ tsp. salt
1 tbs. vanilla extract
1 ½ c. heavy cream

Whirl until well mixed. Pour into six custard
cups. Place in baking pan with hot water up about
2 inches.

Bake 325 for about 45 minutes or until knife inserted
In center comes clean.

The pumpkin came to the top and the wonderful custard

Yum, Barbo! That sounds soooooo good, especially with toasted pecans on top. I love recipes when everything can be thrown in the food processor. Thanks for posting this.

I made your pumpkin custard yesterday. Just as you said... it was so easy and tasted delicious!

Not having any brown sugar sub. I replaced it with 6 T. DaVinci butterscotch, which has a nice mild flavor. Because of it being liquid, I used that much less cream. Used all granular E for the other sweetening.

Had no pumpkin pie spice either, so used 1/2 teas, ginger and 1/4 teas. cloves.


Thanks for sharing the basic recipe. It's a keeper for me.
