Microwave Pumpkin Pudding

Microwave Pumpkin Pudding | Zovie Style

I made my Thanksgiving pumpkin pie (a gluten-free, dairy-free, crustless version)  yesterday, and then of course promptly wanted to eat pumpkin pie. So, I whipped up this quick pumpkin pudding to avoid cutting into it.

I used an oversized mug for my pudding, (sort of like a mug cake, only pudding), but you could also double the recipe in a bigger bowl and then move the pudding to smaller dishes to cool and serve, just as you would a stove pudding.

Microwave Pumpkin Pudding

Prep time: 1 min
Cook time: 5 mins
Total time: 6 mins
Serves: 2
  • 3/4 c pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 c milk (dairy or non-dairy, I used almond)
  • 1 T tapioca starch (or corn starch)
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • dash ground cloves
  • dash nutmeg
  1. Combine all ingredients in microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Microwave on high, stirring after each minute, until the pudding starts to bubble and puff up. Stir.
  3. Refrigerate until lukewarm or chilled as desired. Top with whipped cream (or whipped coconut cream).

  1. Oh, Christa, what a brilliant idea! It’s embarrassing to serve that pumpkin pie with a sliver cut out of it, isn’t it? 😉 Thank you for saving me from that this year! LOL, but true! And I’m so glad you enjoy my pumpkin pie recipe. 🙂 Thanks for the link love!
