I have a 796 ml can of pure pumpkin. Don't know what to bake in order to use it all up.
I have searched for pumpkin pie recipes, but the amount I have will make 2 pies and we are not into that much pumpkin pie. So....what would you bake that would use up the entire can?

Thank's inadvance for your help chowhound's..

    I would make pumpkin bread and freeze them (or muffins).

        I haven't found the one I used, but this is promising - a thread based on a pumpkin bread recipe:

        Also did you see this thread on non pumpkin bread ideas for pumpkin?

        You can also freeze the extra pumpkin puree.

          This is a good recipe and you can play with the amounts of sugar and oil. For example, I use one cup of white sugar and one cup of brown and less oil.

            You reduce the sugar from 3 cups to 2?

              Yup. Its really sweet as written and I think the vast amount of pumpkin makes it very forgiving. I think the accompanying reviews have a lot of tips for adjustments.

        You could also make a pot of soup and freeze any left overs( assuming it's not pumpkin pie filling=spiced /sweetened).saute up some onions/leeks/garlic w some smoked paprika,cumin,thyme, salt and pepper til golden. add puree and as much water/veg or chicken stock as needed to thin to soup consistency. at end add shredded kale and re-season. top w/sour cream, smoked paprika oil (stir powder into Olive oil and let sit for a bit) and chopped parsley.Can adjust any veg or seasoning as you like or have on hand

          On of my favs is pumpkin corn muffins, great with anything! Dinner, lunch, and breakfast! I also like pumpkin pancakes too. (used to work for IHOP and got addicted to these)

            Hello all, thank you for your input and suggestions. I finally decided to try the epicurious recipe, after reading the reviews it was clear that there was alot of flexibility. I too make some changes to the recipe, reduced oil added yogurt, reduced the sugar, upped the cinnamin. All in all it was alright nothing to write home. I find it's alot better toasted with butter.....
            Again, appreciate all responses.....
