    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

    Does anyone know the conversion for the egg substitute to real eggs? I will not use substitutes, chemical-laden garbage (topping) nor fat-free anything as fat is an extremely important part of any nutrition plan.

    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

    Spark people, please provide natural ingredient options for egg substitute, whipped chemicals, etc. the recipe sounds great but will not use artificial ingredients when natural doesn't have that much higher calorie content... - 11/5/15

    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

    I can't believe that this is low fat. It tasts just like the fattening pumpkin pie we are all used to, but with out the crust - 12/15/11

    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

    This sounds great. Has anyone made it with egg replacer? My son is allergic to eggs, so it's easier to make one dish than two. - 8/24/11

    This will be hard for me to make as I am unable to find many of the ingredients (lite, fat-free) that have been listed here. I might have no choice but to make a pumpkin flan that is not at all fat-free - 11/6/19
