This tasted all right, but I am unlikely to make it again. I definitely think the cinnamon should be mixed into the pumpkin batter rather than sprinkled on top. I can also vouch that you need the entire two tablespoons. I personally think it could have used an extra egg and a larger pinch of baking soda - maybe one teaspoon instead of the one half I used.


I used almond milk because I didn't have evaporated milk. It was still good, but the evaporated milk would definitely be better, I'm sure. The custard is light with good flavor. The topping is a LOT of sugar, but don't cut it. It makes a crust on top. I love cinnamon, but my roommate doesn't. She preferred the custard without the top crust, but it's easily scooped off. Either way, we'll make it again.


This is a good basic recipe. I modified the recipe to make it dairy free and gluten free, and it was really tasty. I mixed the cinnamon into the filling and sprinkled just a couple tablespoons of sugar on top. No problems with it burning, as another commenter mentioned. Next time I will bake it a few minutes longer and use only 3/4 cup of sugar in the filling.
