Method

  • Preheat oven to 325F / 160C. Put a kettle of water on to heat for the water bath. Line a roasting pan with a folded kitchen towel.
  • Heat the milk over low heat in a small saucepan until barely steaming but not boiling.
  • Whisk the eggs and maple syrup in a large bowl until smooth. Gently whisk in the warm milk (a little bit at a time so that the eggs don't cook). Add the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; whisk until blended.
  • Divide the mixture among six custard cups. Skim the foam from the surface and put the custard cups in the prepared roasting pan. Pour enough boiling water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the custard cups.
  • Put the filled roasting pan in the oven and bake, uncovered, until the custards are just set but still quiver in the center when shaken, 45 to 50 minutes. Transfer the custards to a wire rack and let cool for 45 minutes. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until chilled.
  • To serve, top each custard with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of crystallised ginger.
