Pumpkin Custard Upside Down Crisp

November 11, 2012

As we are getting closer to Thanksgiving, I wanted to post up a recipe for a simple and tasty dessert for your holiday table or to be enjoyed the morning after for a decadent breakfast treat!   This custard takes advantage of seasonal pumpkin and,  an added bonus, you don’t have to add any sugar to the custard!  One eight oz jar of my Pumpkin Butter (or Fruit Butter of your choice) is all that you need to sweeten this delightful dessert.  If you are lucky, all of the topping will sink through the custard so that you will have a delightful bottom of gooey oatmeal to enjoy with each bite!  If you look at my photos, you will see the lovely bottom layer all nice and browned 🙂  Simple and old-fashioned dessert reminds me of something my grandmother would have served–hope you love this recipe.

  2. Thanks Jayne! I love this recipe too, and I am sure you could substitute with any fruit butter if you don’t care for pumpkin 🙂

  5. This looks so good, Wendy, so good! I have only half a jar of your pumpkin butter in my fridge and I am wondering what I can get to replace the other half. I love pumpkin recipes but I love even more when I find out of the ordinary treats like this! Perfect!

  7. Ooh I love all custards and the other day I was thinking how I never had a pumpkin one. I bet I would love this though usually I avoid pumpkin desserts. It is truly inviting! 🙂
