  • Beat sugar, butter, and eggs together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; add pumpkin and mix well. Beat milk, flour, and baking powder into pumpkin mixture until smooth; pour into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle cinnamon over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set in the middle, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

I recommend using 4 eggs if using medium.

Margarine can be used in place of butter.

I wanted to try something new and made this as a side dish for christmas dinner. It was really good! More like a dessert tho. Tasted alot like a pumpkin pie but with a fluffier texture and without the hassle of a crust. I really liked this and probably could have ate the whole dish myself! Read More

I cut down on the sugar and added salt/pepper/ & sage for a more savory version. Next time will try cutting down on the butter too. 450 burned top and sides before it set, so I also turned down the heat to 400 the 2nd time I made it. It's enough like pumpkin pie that my 9 year olds liked it and my husband said "you can make this again" which is high praise from him! Read More

My family loved this! I modified it to meet my dietary needs. I used I Can't believe It's Butter Coconut Palm Sugar and Coconut flour and to give it more flavor I added 1/3 cup pure maple syrup. I also whipped the egg whites and butter and folded it in at the end. I baked fluff and had a great texture. Read More

After greasing my pan I lightly dusted with a 2:1 ratio of sugar and cinnamon. Additionally I separated the eggs and folded in the beaten egg whites as a last step. Great recipe. Read More

The dish was absolutely perfect and delectable. The only change I made was because I didn't have any cake flour -so I substituted it with 1 tbsp of cornstarch and the rest of the 1/2 cup with all purpose flour. Read More

Nice flavor and texture! I used a Japanese Kabocha pumpkin for this. I dusted top with cinnamon but it turned burnt brown by 40min. I should have covered w foil. Scraped burnt looking top off though and taste was wonderful. Read More

The oven temperature on this recipe needs to be reduced. At 18 minutes it was almost burnt on top and the edges yet still raw in the middle. I made this using gluten free flour and four medium eggs (as mentioned in the notes). It is very very good. I will definitely make it again. It was an excellent complement to baked chicken. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Very moist. I used artificial sweetner instead of sugar and it turned out fine. Shared with friends, and they loved it. Watch the bake time as it browns quickly. Read More
