Rich Pumpkin Custard Recipe

"When I was on a low-fat diet, I couldn't bear the thought of celebrating Thanksgiving without my favorite pumpkin pie," explains Fort Wayne, Indiana's Mary Alice Dick. "So I altered the ingredients and created this thick pudding instead. Now I can enjoy the dessert throughout the year."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Dash ground cloves
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 can (12 ounces) fat-free evaporated milk

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites, sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Add pumpkin and vanilla; mix well. Gradually beat in milk. Pour into eight ungreased 6-oz. custard cups.
  • 2. Place the cups in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan; add 1 in. of water to pan. Bake at 325° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm or chill. Yield: 8 servings.

"Amazing. I made in twice this week! Since i'm a type 2 diabetic i cut the sugarback to a half a cup. My ramekins are a little smaller in diameter but deeper so i baked them an extra ten minutes."

"I made this last night and it was delicious. I don't have custard cups so baked it in a pottery pie plate for about 55 minutes. My husband loved it! Will make this often. Thanks for a great recipe!"

"I also make a simular recipe, but follow the recipe on pumpkin can, substituting low-fat evap. milk, splenda on occasions, but I don't bake it in the oven. I place it in a 2 qt. baking dish, set inside a 3 qt. bk'g dish to which I place HOT water, then MICROWAVE it about 5-8 minutes, remove, and fold edges towards the center and continue cooking, repeating as necessary until all is cooked. It is not a smooth-looking texture, but the taste and quick convience of microwaving more than makes up for it's appearance, plus it keeps the heat in the kitchen to a minimum and if the oven is in use for something else, it saves oven space."

"I made this for Thanksgiving as a light dessert alternative. I used brown sugar and adjusted the spices slightly to match our family's traditional favorite pumpkin pie recipe. Great!"

"We like to eat healthy in our family & aren't big fans of pie, so when I saw this recipe I had to try it. I have made it many times & have given out the recipe almost everytime I serve it to company.I can't believe that such a rich tasting custard can be made with just egg whites! It is a real comfort food & it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it!!!"

"Perfect for diabetics!!!

My husband and I were diagnosed with borderline type 2 diabetes. We've been watching our carb intake eversince but I have been worried about baking my mom's pumpkin pie's for the holidays. This recipe is so similar but without all the sugar and pie crust. Thank you, Mary Alice Dick!!!
