Easy Recipe for Pumpkin Custard

I love this recipe because it’s so quick and easy, and I don’t have to use canned milk which I rarely have in my pantry.  It’s like a crustless pumpkin pie, and so it has a lot less calories and fat…just the healthy pumpkin which is loaded with Vitamin A and Carotene.  I wish I had a can of pumpkin on hand (I usually do) so I could make this today.  It’s a cold, icy day here in the Metroplex area of North Texas, and warm pumpkin custard would be soooo good!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 can pumpkin
  • 1 cup milk (I use 3/4 cup)
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup sugar (I use 1/4 cup sugar & Stevia equivalent for nearly 1/2 cup sugar – 7 KAL spoonfuls)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix ingredients together.  Pour in a greased baking dish (or pie plate).  Bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees for 20 minutes and then at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  Let cool for 10-20 minutes and then eat while it’s warm.

Optional: serve with frozen vanilla yogurt, vanilla ice cream, or canned whipped cream
