This dessert looks like custard but it contains No Egg. This is based on my Panna Cotta recipe and I added smoothly pureed Cooked Pumpkin. Enjoy with your favourite syrup or sauce. Today I enjoyed it with Maple Syrup.


4 Servings


2 teaspoons Gelatine *about 8g
2 to 3 tablespoons Water
1 cup Milk
1/4 cup Caster Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract OR 1 tablespoon Rum
1 cup pureed Cooked Pumpkin *smoothly pureed OR blended
1/2 cup Cream
Maple Syrup, Muscovado Syrup, Caramel Sauce, etc.

  1. Sprinkle Gelatine Powder into Water in a small bowl and soak for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Place Milk, Sugar and Vanilla (OR Rum) in a saucepan, and heat over medium heat, stirring, and bring just to the boil. Remove from heat.
  3. Add soaked Gelatine, mix well until gelatine dissolves. Add Cream and smoothly pureed Pumpkin, and mix to combine. *Note: For extra smooth texture, you can strain the mixture through a sieve.
  4. Pour the mixture into serving glasses or jelly moulds. Place them in the fridge and leave to set.
  5. Serve with Maple Syrup, Muscovado Syrup, OR sauce of your choice.
