Flan de Calabaza or Pumpkin Custard

Everyone asks me for Puerto rican recipes for Thanksgiving. And to be honest, I don’t really have any. I love the “American traditional” Thanksgiving. My mom and my sister used to cook the Thanksgiving meal when I was little. Now my sister is the one who does the whole dinner every year, and I do the Christmas dinner. My favorite dish? It has to be the bread stuffing! I look forward to it all year. Smothered in gravy!

So I remembered this flan.  It’s quick and easy, it looks amazing and it has the hispanic twist.

Pre-heat your oven at 350F

Here are the ingredients:

For the custard:

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1tsp vanilla extract
5 eggs
Pinch of salt

For the caramel:

¾ cup white granulated sugar

Now here’s the video tutorial on how to make it.
