"This delicious pumpkin flan is the result of an experiment in replacing the recipe's usual cream and half-and-half with low-fat milk."

1 1/4 cups
1 (15 ounce) can
1 3/4 cups
vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped out and reserved
hulled toasted pumpkin seeds
this recipe is easy and makes delicious flan. I have added pumpkin whipped cream plus a ginger cookie!
My son found this recipe and I finally made it for him. It's very good. The taste is right on. Not heavy like a custard with heavy cream and half and half , and the taste is not sacrificed. Thank you, Chef. P.S. my son loved it!
I try the pumpkin Flan and I love it and so did my family and it was very easy to make thank you I really enjoy eating it and making it as well...
This was so smooth, creamy and delicious! I only made one change out of necessity - instead of a vanilla bean, I added 1 1/2 teaspoons of Mexican Vanilla. This is a little bit of pumpkin heaven in a ramekin! Thanks Chef John!!
