What's for Dinner at Furnished Quarters?
Nov 25, 2013 03:30 AM
As mentioned in our previous blog post, one of the greatest benefits of corporate housing is having the luxury to cook meals in your own private, fully equipped kitchen. Each month, we’ll provide you with a new seasonal recipe to try.
We have recently partnered with food delivery service Blue Apron to provide benefits to our guests and recipes for readers of our blog. Blue Apron is a weekly delivery service that provides its customers with gourmet recipes and fresh ingredients, in exactly the right proportions, to prepare 3 meals per week. This month’s Fall Favorite recipe is for a delicious Thanksgiving dessert! These pumpkin custards with whipped cream are made with 5 simple ingredients and only take 5 minutes to prepare.
Five-Ingredient Pumpkin Custards from Blue Apron
These can be eaten warm, room temperature, or cold. That gives you a lot of make-ahead options! You can bake these up to 3 hours in advance and leave them at room temperature or 2 days in advance, in which case you should store in the fridge.
One 15-ounce can pumpkin puree
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
Extra 1/2 cream for whipping (optional)
Pre-heat the oven to 300°F. Combine all ingredients (except the extra cream) and whisk until smooth. Oil four 5 ounce baking dishes. Evenly divide the pumpkin batter between the 4 dishes. Place the dishes onto a sheet pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the middle is just set but still has a little “jiggle” to it. Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes or longer.
If you like, you can whip up the remaining cream and serve the custards with whipped cream. Garnish with a little shake of pumpkin pie spice.
