I made this with some fresh pumpkin that I cooked and pureed. I then poured the whole thing into a round pie pan and baked it. It was like crustless pumpkin pie. I called it pumpkin kugel and served it right along with the main course. I did not bother with the apples, and used soy milk and the brown sugar. It was great hot and I was eating the leftovers cold the next morning. I really liked this.
This was very good and incredibly easy to make. I'll be experimenting with a coconut milk-based dairy-free version.
This was tasty, but not really a custard. As others have stated it tastes like pumpkin pie filling. It's good and easy though. Good warm or cold.
