TWD: Pumpkin Muffins
One great thing about pumpkin desserts is the color. That burnt orange color... love it!
This week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe was Pumpkin Muffins, and was chosen by Kelly of "Sounding My Barbaric Gulp". Thanks Kelly! These lovely muffins have gotten me in the fall baking spirit.
My 9 year old took this picture. Don't they look great against the just-turning fall leaves?
A lot of folks said they loved these muffins. I don't know if it's my imagination or not, but it seemed like a lot of the folks that loved them added chocolate chips. Is that true? Anyone?
Personally, I thought they were a little bland. I did enjoy the crunch of the sunflower seeds on top, though. It was an interesting and tasty addition. I decided to up the yummy-factor by adding a healthy dollop of cream cheese icing to the muffins. They pretty much rocked after that. (Although I think it's quite possible that a burlap bag would taste delish with a dollop of cream cheese icing on top.)
I ended up with 12 muffins plus enough batter for a 2-inch mini cake.
Next week, we'll break out the muffin pans again for "Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes". See you then!
