Pumpkin flan and Chocoholic Award

Pumpkin Flan is another palatable dessert for the season.Baking in individual molds is apt for dessert portion control. Recipe is same as the Rose Flan,Sara in this video is baking in an oven proof dish.I used fresh small pumpkin(pie pumpkin) , its puree is lighter yellow color verses the canned pumpkins which have a the darker orange color .To add more perk to the flan,you can top with the pumpkin seed candy.
I'm sending the recipe off to weekend wokking,this months theme is Pumpkins ,being hosted by Soli Deo Gloria of Heart and Hearth.


Ingredients for custard
2 cups whole milk
1 cup Pumpkin puree,I used fresh pumpkin puree,see how to puree a pumpkin here
2 Organic eggs

For caramel
3 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoon water

6 ramekins\molds or one 8 inch baking pan\oven proof dish.

Method
Same as the Rose flan recipe.


How to make the pumpkin seed candy for topping?


Lay the aluminum foil or parchment paper on a cookie sheet or a plate. Lightly Grease with few drops of oil,Spread about 2 tablespoon of toasted pumpkin seeds. Prepare the caramel just as in this recipe and pour over the seeds.Tilt the sheet a little to spread,don't try to touch, its super hot could burn your fingers. Wait patiently at least 15 minutes before removing from the foil ,use it for topping on custards.

Fall Foliage from a nature reservation very close to our place.
