Pumpkin Flan

Pumpkin Flan

I make this fun pumpkin dessert every year for Halloween in my pumpkin-shaped baking dish. You can, of course, make it in regular ramekins for a non-seasonal dessert.

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place a tart pan on a baking sheet.
  2. Step 2

    Combine silken tofu, pumpkin puree, applesauce, cornstarch, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, and food coloring in a bowl. Puree using a stick blender until smooth. Pour batter into the tart pan, filling only halfway.
  3. Step 3

    Bake in the preheated oven until flan has set, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely before inverting onto a serving plate.
  4. Step 4

    Place chocolate in a metal bowl. Heat cream, honey, and butter in a small saucepan until almost boiling and pour over chocolate. Leave for 1 minute, then stir well until chocolate has melted. Transfer chocolate ganache to a piping bag fitted with a small tip and decorate pumpkin flan. Refrigerate until serving.
