Perfect for holiday parties and dinners. Easy to follow recipe with a 30 minute baking time.
Are these Pumpkin Muffins or Pumpkin Cupcakes?
You decide. Hubby and the kids swear they are cupcakes...must be the sweet Cream Cheese Frosting.
The recipe comes from our local grocery store. (Kroger)
Trust me, it's good.
And your house will smell incredible.
What you need....
11/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon and dash of nutmeg
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup solid-packed pumpkin (little less than 15 oz. can)
Preheated oven to 350 (25-30 minutes baking time) (makes 12)
What you do....
whisk all these ingredients except the flour into a large bowl. Mix well then add flour.
Be sloppy like me and dump batter into each little hungry hole or do it like a pro and fill only 2/3's of the way....
Test their "doneness" (I'm making that an official word despite auto-spell check) after 25 minutes.
I needed the full 30 minutes. Let muffins, ahem...cupcakes, cool for 5 minutes then transfer to cooling rack until room temperature so you can add frosting.
You could eat them just like this. Save a few calories and simply sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.
But why?!!! It's the holidays...we all deserve a little extra!
There. Doesn't that look a lot better?
12 look even better :)
One dish for home, one dish for work.
Happy Monday to my coworkers. Such a nice way to start the workweek!
Hope you give this recipe a try!
I had my doubts, mainly because I've never gotten a recipe from the grocery store. But it makes sense.
I purchased the items I needed which were oh,so coincidentally on sale and who better to knock off a common recipe than a grocery store chain the size of Kroger?
