Molasses Pumpkin Pie Recipe

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Molasses is the enhancing sweetener used in this pumpkin pie recipe. It lends a rich, old-fashioned flavor to the spiced pumpkin filling.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup unsulphured molasses
  • 2 cups mashed, cooked pumpkin
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup undiluted evaporated milk or light cream
  • One 9-inch, unbaked single-crust pie shell


Mix together the sugar, flour, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. Add the molasses, pumpkin, and eggs. Mix well. Stir in evaporated milk or cream.

Pour mixture into a 9-inch unbaked pie shell. Bake in a preheated hot oven (400 degrees F.) 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool pie before serving.

Yield: 1 (9-inch) pie

Molasses Pumpkin Pie, Member SusanRaabe

i have made this pie for over 30 years. I recently lost the recipe, and found it here. This is a great pie, and not anemic looking like the ones without molasses.
