Round, orange, versatile and delicious. Usually the pumpkin doesn’t get carved into a Jack-O- Lantern until the end of October, so what are we supposed to do with all that glorious-ness besides gaze at it adoringly?
Well, I suppose we should eat it. Then we can become one with the pumpkin!
Let’s start with pumpkin muffins, these are an easy, delicious muffin that I have slightly adapted from the original recipe.
makes 12 ♥
3 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups canned pure pumpkin (not the pie filling)
2 cups white sugar 2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp baking soda 3 eggs
1/2 tsp baking powder
6 tsp pumpkin spice
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin spice and salt.
In a separate bowl, mix together pumpkin, vegetable oil and eggs.
Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture and stir until well blended and smooth.
Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the centre of muffin comes out clean.
♥ usually comes out closer to 20 muffins using full recipe.
