Default Pumpkin Custard

The recipe called for a lot more sugar & spices, but I toned it down a bit, as it was way to sweet & we can't do many spices. It bakes up thick like pumpkin pie, but there's no messing with pie crust.

Pumpkin Custard

Ingredients:

1 3/4 Cups cold Milk
1 Cup granulated sugar
4 large Eggs
1 Teaspoon Salt
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
2 Cups solid pack Pumpkin ( I use a 15 ounce can)
4 Cups cubed Bread or 4 slices Bread ripped into cubed size.

Topping:
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon (add more cinnamon or other spices if you like it spicey).
4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar (you will need more if you add more spices).

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl mix together milk, granulated sugar, eggs, salt, vanilla & pumpkin until well blended. Fold in bread cubes. Pour into a greased 9x13 or larger glass baking dish. Bake 35-40 minutes. Remove & put topping on (see below).

Topping:
Mix cinnamon & brown sugar together & sprinkle over the top of the custard. Return to oven & bake 10 minutes. Cool to room tempature. Keep refrigerated.

Thank you so much. I have grown to LOVE pumpkin after my 65th year more than ever before in my life. It used to be just pumpkin pie at the Holidays in Miami. But now in Alabama I have tried pumpkin muffins (Panera), pumpkin cookies, pumpkin gingerbread and now pumpkin custard, thanks to you, Feather 3 ! Happy Holidays from Alabama, Roll Tide, War Eagle.

Nutmeg....which we can no longer have due to allergies. Any spice you would normally put in pumpkin pie you can use in this.

So is this like a bread pudding?

Yes in a way. It thickens up just like pumpkin pie, but with no crust. All of the spices are on top, so you can add any you would normally put in a pumpkin pie. They just need to be mixed in with the brown sugar first.
