Making Pumpkin Pudding

Well, another delicious holiday dessert is pumpkin pudding. It’s a great and festive way to enjoy the holidays with the whole family and it's quick and easy!

Now mix together the can of pumpkin, the three beaten eggs,`1 milk, salt, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, and sugar in the large bowl. You can use anything to mix it all with, a rubber spatula, a wooden spoon, or if you have neither of those, a large spoon will do the trick. Be sure to mix everything so that it's mixed evenly.
There's no need to grease the pan first. Just pour the mixed ingredients into the baking pan. Pour it all so that it covers the pan evenly. Don't just pour it all in one spot. If you couldn't get it even while pouring, smooth out the top of the pudding with your mixing spoon.
