    This recipe is great! Have been making it for years, and still love it. Works for squash well. I make it in the microwave. Takes 4 -5 min steamed the same way.
    To make in the microwave - place filled custard cups in dish of hot water. Micro at high for roughly 5 min or until set.

    I used 2 T. brown sugar splenda instead of white sugar, and evaporated milk instead of 2%. Hubby & I both loved it, and I'm sure the grandkids will, too! I'm wondering - protein, vegetable, carbs, not too much sugar -- hmmm, let's think outside the box! Wouldn't it make an interesting breakfast ??? - 10/29/09

    I made this w/raw organic sugar (larger crystals), real eggs/egg whites, and almond milk. The consistency was good and firm. I tried it with and without the maple syrup and the syrup was such a nice addition. I was out of cream/whipped topping. I would recommend, & make it again. - 4/16/07

    This is very similar to the crustless pumpkin pie I make, but I use Splenda instead of the sugar. The entire pie is only 8 WW points. - 3/11/10

    I like making this as a side dish to go with pork or poultry. Sometimes I ad or use butternut squash instead of pumpkin. - 10/11/08

    I agree with many of the posters above that this can be made with the Splenda Brown Sugar mix, using half of cup. I substitute fat free milk, but the type I use has fewer carbohydrates and more protein so it sets well with the egg substitute. Ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon - all done! - 12/15/10

    Very good. I like my food with lots of spice so I doubled the amount of pumpkin spice. Nice and firm. I topped it with a bit of maple syrup, no whipped cream.
    Thanks for posing.

    Great Recipe - I varied it with whole eggs & skim milk and it turned out great!
    Even better with a tiny bit of dark brown sugar sprinkled on top after baking - it melts in and adds a touch of sweetness.

    A ramekin is the little ceramic dish you see in the picture. Some call it a custard cup. As for using real eggs, keep cracking them into your measuring cup until you get 1 cup, beat them before adding other ingredients. I like to stir in chopped pecans before baking. Good recipe! - 12/15/10

    Canned pumpkin has been hard to find - I understand there was a problem with the crop last year. Sweet potatoes work well in this but are higher in calories. - 3/11/10

    I'd love it with more sugar or some whipped cream, but it was very good as written. . . . Months later, my sweet tooth is being tamed, and I like it very much as written. I have stocked up on canned pumpkin so I can have it year-round without spending a fortune! - 1/16/10

    This is awesome! I have a diabetic husband, so I have no sugar in my house. I used 1/2 cup diabetisweet, 2% Calorie Countdown milk from Hood [lower carbs, reduced milk sugars, at WM]. Makes the calories about the same but the net carbs are only 6. Added SF maple syrup & SF whipped cream! YUM! - 10/23/09

    For a natural sugar substitute try agave syrup or Whey-Low. I use both - very close to sugar taste. Agave syrup can be found at Whole Foods, Whey-low must be purchased online. - 10/15/10

    I did a few modifications. I microwaved the custard in a hot water bath (6 minutes on high), used 2 eggs, used a teaspoon each of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger, and used a 1/4 cup of splenda brown sugar and 3 teaspoons of truvia. I topped the custard with walnuts. - 10/14/10

    I LOVE pumpkin, so this was a must-make! I've often made regular pumpkin pie filling (double the spice) and baked it plain for my own eating. Yum! I modified this recipe a bit to use a scant cup of skim milk. That cut the calories down to 92 and fat down to 0. It came out great. - 3/12/10

    I am sorry to say I just didn't like this. I ate one custard cup and I can't eat the rest. I love my egg custard that I make in the custard cups and pan of water in the oven, so I'll just stick with that. I am really in the minority, so pay no attention. - 1/7/18

    Enjoyed and will make often. I experimented and used eggwhites for eggs (equivalent to the liquid egg beaters) and added a Silk Almond "eggnog" that I found, it has 45 calories per 1/2 cup. I didn't add any more sugar-it can be sweetened to taste with what ever anyone wants. Great! Thank you. - 11/11/15

    I liked BestSusie's suggestion to have it for breakfast. I've been wanting more things I can make ahead for my family to eat for breakfast. It's not too sweet and made a great snack for first thing in the morning (45 minutes) before a run, when I want some protein and carbs, but not a full meal. - 10/1/12

    I combined this recipe with a method I read elsewhere. Rather than individual ramekins, I put the custard batter into a souffle dish and put it in a waterbath in my slow cooker. After 6 hours on low, I had custard - not quite as smooth as baked but ready when I got home from errands. - 10/8/10
