I love to bake and try out new recipes like this one. I love this recipe, and I think you will, too.

The recipe is for one pumpkin pie, but if you want two pies, then all you do is double the ingredients. That is what my mother did, which is why there are two pies in the picture. I love when my mother makes pumpkin pie. When I make it, it comes out good but never tastes like hers. These two pies were gone in two days. My mother made this pie for my nephew's birthday, and we ate the other one. It was very yummy. If you make this recipe, I hope you love it as much as I do.

  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 cup molasses


  1. In a bowl, mix the can of pumpkin, sugar, salt, and nutmeg. Stir. Add the eggs, milk, cinnamon, ginger, and molasses. Mix together all the ingredients until they are mixed well.

      Yummy! I love pumpkin pie though I have to make my own pumpkin puree as I can't buy pumpkin in a can here where I am. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
