No recipe image available.Rich, smooth and creamy pumpkin flan with a luscious caramel sauce.

Recipe Ingredients:

2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup canned pumpkin purée
3 large eggs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of ground allspice
1 cup milk

Cooking Directions:

  1. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Stir sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Boil until mixture turns amber-colored, brushing any crystals that form on sides of pan with wet brush and swirling pan occasionally, about 7 minutes. Immediately divide caramel among six 1/2 cup soufflè dishes to cover bottoms and sides with caramel. Cool.
  3. Whisk pumpkin, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and allspice in large bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in milk. Divide mixture among soufflè dishes.
  4. Place dishes in large baking pan. Add enough water to baking pan to come halfway up sides of dishes. Bake until flan is set, about 55 minutes. Cool.
  5. Refrigerate at least 8 hours and up to 2 days. Run small sharp knife around edges of dishes to loosen. Invert flans onto dessert plates and serve.
