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.
