  3. If it’s not already a pourable consistency, warm your homemade nutella in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
  4. Place large dollops of Nutella on top of the pumpkin filling, then drag a knife between the dollops to create swirls.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top is set and no longer jiggles if you lightly shake the pan. Let cool completely in pan.
