1 cup
2% milk
1 cup
1/2 cup
granulated sugar
1/2 cup
brown sugar
2 tsp
1/4 tsp


5 tbsp + 1 tsp
granulated sugar


  • PREHEAT oven to 325F. Arrange 8 ramekins in a baking dish (or roasting pan) large enough to hold all. Boil a kettle of water. Heat cream and milk in a saucepan set over medium, until it starts to simmer, about 5 min. Remove from heat.
  • WHISK pumpkin with 1/2 cup granulated and 1/2 cup brown sugar, yolks, vanilla, pie spice and salt in a bowl until smooth. While whisking, gradually add hot cream mixture. Pour into ramekins. Pour boiled water into baking dish until it comes halfway up the ramekins.
  • BAKE in centre of oven until custard is set but centre is still slightly jiggly, 35 to 38 min. Transfer dishes to a wire rack and cool for 10 min. Refrigerate, uncovered, until chilled, at least 6 hours.
  • SPRINKLE 2 tsp sugar evenly over each custard. Caramelize sugar with a kitchen torch until melted and golden.
