This dessert is so easy to make — it only takes five minutes to assemble then the rest of the work is done in the oven. The flan needs to be chilled before serving so it’s a great make-ahead dessert. — Curry and Comfort

Deliver Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 Cups coconut milk
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 Cup sugar or splenda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 Cup pumpkin puree (fresh or canned)
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • Maple syrup, to taste, for garnish

Directions

Pre heat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Put all ingredients into blender. Blend until smooth and well mixed. Place 2 to 3 tsp of maple syrup at the bottom of each well of muffin pan or oven safe baking dish. Pour custard to the top of each well. Bake in a 325 degree F oven in a water bath. I pour hot water carefully to a much larger pan- be careful not to get any water into custard.Take out of oven and allow to cool. Take a knife and slowly trace round the custard to loosen it from the pan or dish. Chill for several hours. To serve, invert over a plate or a platter. The maple syrup should form a glaze/sauce for the flan.

Pumpkin Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Pumpkin Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
