Recipe of the Day: Pumpkin Pudding

Leave a comment

This is a great recipe that makes a custard-like pudding that is similar to pumpkin pie filling. However, it is much easier because you don’t have to make a pie crust!

At the last CRAFT meeting that I went to, someone had brought a pudding made with delicata squash that was delicious. She told me that she used a pumpkin pudding recipe and just used the delicata squash instead of the pumpkin. It inspired me to make some pumpkin pudding of my own. I had recently pureed some pumpkin, so I used that, but I am planning on trying it with other squash varieties as well. The pudding is not overly sweet, but has a wonderful pumpkin flavor that is great for the fall.

  • 2 cups pumpkin purée

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup milk
