This dessert from Bitchin Camero looks so yummy and is a great alternative to cheesecake! Read on:

Bitchin Camero says, “Though I love traditional flan and all the memories that come with it, I wanted to make something that was a little more Autumn. I took the traditional recipe and added pumpkin, cinnamon, cognac and a little mascarpone cheese. I also dressed it all up with honey cardamom pumpkin seeds and a sprinkling of sweet cocoa nibs. It ended up being a wonderful fall dessert full of caramel and spice and everything nice.”


For the caramel:

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. coarse salt

For the flan:

1 cup sugar

1 cup pureed pumpkin (I used canned because, I can be lazy too)

5 large eggs

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 cup mascarpone cheese, room temperature

2 tbsp. cognac (optional)…
