Happy Thanksgiving to all my my Canadian people! 🙂 Brazilians don’t celebrate Thanksgiving but that didn’t stop me from making a batch of my favourite pumpkin muffins – although since we don’t have muffin tins in the house it turned into a type of bread/cake… but really, the only difference is that the pan is easier to clean! I thought I’d share the recipe with you here since it is a family favourite. I got it from Kitchen Stewardship but I will post the recipe with any modifications that I usually make.
- ¾ cup honey(I used sugar but I will probably try it with 1 tsp-ish of stevia in the future for fun. I have also used honey and it’s great)
- 2 eggs
- 1⅔ c. whole wheat flour
- ½ c. melted butter or coconut oil (I used butter this time)
- ¼ c. cold water
- 1 c. pumpkin (which I chopped, baked and pureed all by myself!)
- ½ t. cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves EACH (I did not use cloves this time as they were not ground and quite expensive)
- ¼ t. baking powder
- 1 t. baking soda
- ¾ t. salt
- 1 Tbs. molasses
- Chocolate chips (or in my case a chopped dark chocolate bar!)
- Mix all ingredients together. Put in greased loaf pan or muffin tin. Bake at 325 degrees.
- Bread (one loaf) = 65-80 minutes 12 Muffins = 35-40 minutes 24 Mini muffins = 25 minutes
Sad to say it did not last long. But of course that’s a good thing, too!
Enjoy your day with your family and friends!
