Pumpkin lends a unique and mouthwatering spin to the classic custard layered dessert with a soft caramel top. This flan is convenient--it can be made in advance and kept refrigerated until ready to serve.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Place sugar and 1/4 cup water in a medium, heavy saucepan over medium-low heat; cook until sugar dissolves, stirring gently as needed to dissolve sugar evenly. Continue cooking 7 minutes or until golden (do not stir). Immediately pour into a 9-inch round cake pan coated with cooking spray.

Step 3

Place pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, eggs, and milks in a food processor; process until smooth. Pour milk mixture over caramel in pan. Place pan in a 13 x 9-inch metal baking pan; add enough hot water to large pan to come halfway up sides of cake pan.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until center is set. Remove cake pan from water; cool completely on a wire rack. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Step 5

Loosen edges of flan with a knife or rubber spatula. Place a large serving plate, upside down, on top of cake pan; invert flan onto plate. Drizzle any remaining caramelized syrup over flan.
