My goodness, I can't let October end without giving you all a pumpkin recipe! What kind of blogger would I be?
Well, I would be the kind who has been away for oh…5 weeks out of 8 the past two months? I knew that this fall was going to be busy, that I would barely be at home but until you are in the thick of it, you don't really get how busy you are going to be. Add in homeschooling the kids and well, I barely have had a moment to write on here, so thanks for hanging in there and being patient!
While I know you have been completely bombarded by pumpkin recipes – and even I get tired of them, I really do! – this recipe is thanks to the kids and Mike. They wanted pumpkin muffins thus I happily pulled out a can of pumpkin and started baking.
These take my favorite type of muffin – chocolate chip pumpkin– and make them completely junky. White sugar, oil and a delicious struesel take my healthier version and make them decadent.
So be honest with me; are you tired of pumpkin recipes? Are you ready to move on to soups and stews? (I hope so.. because I have tons of cold weather recipes coming!) Or are you on the “pumpkin is timeless” bandwagon?
I love pumpkin so I bake with it year round, but I am ready to move on!
