    This Pumpkin Flan recipe is delicious. My husband couldn't believe it was low fat. I made it lower in calories by using Splenda Brown Sugar. It tasted fantastic!! - 1/31/09

    I wouldn't call this "flan" exactly since there is no caramel quality, however this is a fabulous substitute for full-on pumpkin pie. The addition of the touch of cayenne is sheer brilliance! I followed the ingredients closely, but I omitted the salt and used 1/3 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. - 6/25/11

    the idea is good, but I don't like all of the chemical laden ingredients. I think it would be better to use a real egg and cut some sugar calories with WheyLow. - 10/9/11

  • PARTSBANK is dead on, no caramel like the picture, not really flan. But having said that, it's the best pumpkin custard I've had. Love the cayenne; who'd have thought? Great tasting, will do again. SparkPeople, I've encountered this before where the picture doesn't match up with the recipe. - 12/21/13

  • This is more of a crme brle recipe, without actually 'burning the sugar' added on regular brle; & once again, the photo doesn't match the recipe, which I dislike about these! Make the recipe & take a photo, rather than importing something it's not. - 11/21/13
