Pumpkin Puddings – Budini alla Zucca

Music: Orange Crush, R.E.M. I know that choosing this song may sound frivolous, but if I think pumpkin, I think orange and then orange crush. I can’t help it.


1/2 l whole milk

300 gr pumpkin, diced

100 gr sugar

4 eggs

100 gr ginger chocolate

pumpkin seeds

Bring to a boil the milk and the pumpkin. When the pumpkin is well cooked, puree it in the mixer, then let cool. In a big bowl, beat together the eggs with the sugar, and when the pumpking puree is cold, add it to the bowl. Pour the mixture into 8 well-greased rameskins and place them in a large baking tray containing warm water. Bake at 150° C for one hour, then place in the fridge for a few hours. Just before serving, melt the chocolate and top the puddings with some chocolate and pumpkin seeds.

    Pumpkin is the most overlooked food, isn’t it. It can be sweet and blissful like this recipe, but also hearty and savory. I adore it!

    Thanks for the great recipe!

  7. I’m glad you like it! xoxo
