Can you ever have enough Pumpkin?
Like I said before, I love anything pumpkin. Did you know this was gluten-free. I have two great recipe books for creme brulee, which happens to be my favorite dessert. So I was looking in the book and found the recipe for Pumpkin Creme Brulee. You can find some of my other desserts on my easy recipes page.
I had my husband order me a professional torch, because the cheapie one I had, stopped working.
So I made the brulee and after it cooled and refrigerated for several hours, he brought home the torch and I went to work on it.
I can’t wait to try all the other recipes. I could do a 31 days of brulee. I will have to think about it.
Pumpkin Creme Brulee
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
- 8 egg yolks
- ⅓ cup granulated white sugar (or xylitol)
- 1 cup pureed pumpkin
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon ginger
- ¼ cup white sugar or xylitol for caramelizing
- Preheat over to 300 degrees F
- In a large bowl, whisk together the cream, vanilla, yolks, sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Blend well. Strain into a large bowl, skimming off any foam or bubbles. Divide mixture among 6 - 8 ramekins or custard cups. Place in a water bath and bake until set around the edges, but still loose in the center, about 30 or 40 minutes. Remove from oven and leave in the water bath until cooled. Remove cups from water bath and chill for at least 2 hours, or up to 2 days.
- When ready to serve, sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of sugar over each custard. Take your torch and caramelize the top for a few seconds. If you don't have a torch you can put under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes. Use an inverted pan if needed to get it to 5 inches from flame.
This is so smooth and creamy, everyone at my home loved it.
