A creamy, spiced pumpkin custard served upside down with a caramelized sugar glaze running down the sides

Ingredients
  • PAM® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 can (12 oz each) evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup Egg Beaters® Original
  • 1/4 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Reddi-wip® Fat Free Dairy Whipped Topping
 
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray four 4-ounce custard cups with cooking spray.
  2. Place 1/3 cup of the sugar in heavy 1-quart saucepan. (See Cook's Tips) Heat over medium heat, without stirring, until sugar is melted and golden brown, swirling pan occasionally to heat evenly, about 10 to 12 minutes. Immediately pour equal amounts of sugar syrup into prepared custard cups. Tilt custard cups to coat bottoms evenly.
  3. Place milk in medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Combine Egg Beaters, remaining sugar, pumpkin, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, ginger and allspice in medium bowl. Slowly whisk hot milk into pumpkin mixture until well combined.
  4. Pour pumpkin mixture evenly into custard cups. Place custard cups in roasting pan filled 1-inch deep with very hot water.
  5. Bake 1 hour, or until knife inserted in center of pumpkin mixture comes out clean. Immediately remove from water. Invert onto individual plates and serve warm. Or, refrigerate 4 hours. To unmold, dip cups quickly in hot water and loosen edges with knife before inverting. Top with Reddi-Wip; serve immediately.
Cook's Tips

Avoid burning sugar during caramelization step by using a stainless steel pan. It is difficult to easily see color changes in sugar when using a dark metal pan. Canned pumpkin is nutrition packed without much flavor. 'Bury' leftover pumpkin in pasta sauce, chili or make soup with it. It will boost the nutrition with no one being the wiser.
