    I made this in a 1/4 batch and added some pumpkin purée and pie spice (4oz and 1tsp, respectively), then baked in ramekins. I slightly overestimated the bake time (35min would have been perfect in my little oven) but they were still delicious, albeit cracked and a touch dry on top.

    Absolutely delicious. I added a streusel to the bottom as a crust and sautéed some apples as the topping, to make it perfect for fall.

    It wasnt as firm as i wanted it to be, but I was satisfied with the end product. I also added a biscuit base to it and it came out pretty good.

    This recipe was light, airy, and super yummy! My family loved it, I think it is perfect how it is! The only thing I can is to add 1/2 teaspoon more of vanilla extract. Otherwise it was delicious! 🤤 😋🤤

    I think the sour cream curdled or something went wrong because it tasted really bad.
