Welcome to my Wednesday Food blog ! This is the day I feature some of my favorite recipes : Today We Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month  with a fun flan recipe :

Pumpkin Flan

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 cup  Pure Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (12 fluid ounces)  Evaporated milk

PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

PLACE 8-inch-square baking dish into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan; fill outer pan with hot water to 3/4-inch depth.

HEAT sugar in small, heavy-duty saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until melted and golden brown; pour into square dish. Remove square dish from pan of water; working quickly, swirl melted sugar around bottom and sides of dish to coat. Return dish to water.

COMBINE eggs, egg whites, pumpkin, honey, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract and salt in medium bowl. Add evaporated milk; mix well. Pour into prepared square baking dish.

BAKE for 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Remove square baking dish from water. Cool on wire rack. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Try this instead of regular pumpkin pie at your next holiday meal … Lisa
