Pumpkin Spice Muffins Recipe

So far on the blog I’ve brought you a pumpkin pie recipe and some pumpkin soup. I thought it was high time I tried something new. Every year I’ve planned to try pumpkin spice muffins and never quite got round to it. For a start I wasn’t sure of the nest way to make them and I’ve just not had the time. After doing a bit of research and trying a couple of things, I’m really happy with this recipe.

I decided to make my own pumpkin puree for these, although you can get it in a tin in some places in the UK. With so many pumpkins available at the moment, I thought it would be fun to make it all from scratch. At other times of year a squash will work just as well.

For the muffins:

75g melted butter

250g self raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

How to Make

To make the puree:

Preheat oven to 190ºc

Cut your pumpkin in half from the stalk down. Remove all the seeds.

Place on a baking tray and cover the open sides with foil. Bake for around an hour, or until completely tender.

Once baked, scape out the inside and blend until smooth.

Put into a fine sieve to allow some of the moisture to drain away.

You can skip this step and use a tin of pumpkin, where available.

To make the pumpkin spice muffins:

Preheat oven to 190ºc. Line a muffin tray with 12 cases.

Melt the butter and put to one side to cool.

Sieve all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

Beat the eggs, milk and butter together along with the pumpkin puree.

Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid mix.

Beat with a fork until it forms a lumpy mixture, do not over mix.

Spoon into the cases, until nearly full.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. Then allow to cool on a wire rack.

      I’d still just use a cup full of tinned purée.
