  • 2-3 lb. sugar pumpkin seeded and cubed
  • 1 cup whole milk or fresh cream, or coconut milk
  • ¾ cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 tablespoon organic corn starch
  • 2 pinches sea salt


  • Whipped cream
  • Chopped pecans


  • Add 1 cup water to the inner pot, place a trivet inside. Add the pumpkin cubes to a steamer basket and lower it into the cooker.
  • Close and lock the lid and set the regulator knob to PRESSURE. Cook for 4 minutes at high pressure.
  • In the meantime in a medium bowl mix the milk and maple syrup. Add the eggs, cinnamon, ginger, salt and corn starch. Beat using a fork or an immersion blender, until the ingredients are well combined.
  • When the pressure cooking time is up, release the pressure and open the cooker.
  • Peel the cooked pumpkin and strain in a fine-mesh strainer and once cooled (about 10 minutes) press on the pumpkin pulp to release some liquid (save this liquid to use in place of stock in other recipes).
  • Pour the strained pumpkin pulp in a 2-cup measuring cup until it reached the 2 cup mark. Freeze or refrigerate the rest for future pumpkin pies or to plop into a pasta sauce or soup.
  • Add the pulp to the egg mixture and blend well.
  • Add 1 cup water to the inner pot along with a steamer basket with trivet and set aside.
  • Pour the mixture into heat-proof ramekins and lower into the steamer basket inside the cooker, un-covered – put a second layer on top of the first by balancing on the edges of the ramekins, below (You can also cook them in 2 batches if you prefer to not double layer).
  • Close the lid and set the regulator to PRESSURE. Cook for 10 minutes at HIGH pressure.
  • When time is up, open the cooker with the natural release method (about 10 minutes). Then, release the rest of the pressure slowly using the valve.
  • Lift the ramekins out of the cooker using tongs and let stand 5 minutes before serving or let cool completely, cover tightly and refrigerate for up to two days. Serve with whipped cream and chopped pecans sprinkled on top.
