All my variations on basic pumpkin muffin recipes mean you'll never get bored. Add fruit, nuts, white or dark chocolate chips and different spices to create many delicious kinds of treats to satisfy everyone, whether for a morning coffee or a Halloween party.
I remember a rhyme from when I was a child that we used to sing:
I have just found out, through that fantastic invention called the internet, that this rhyme was first recorded in 1820. Of course the original words are slightly different to the one I remember. As a child of course, I had no idea what I was singing about. It’s only now, that I discover that in Victorian England, the muffin man would be walking the streets delivering baked goods to households, ringing his bell to let people know he was coming. Those would be the flat variety that we know of as English Muffins.
The type which developed in the USA was a deeper shape, more soft and bread like and sweet, and that is the muffin that we all know and love in our coffee shops today.
These recipes are a great way of getting something healthy into your mid-morning treat. Pumpkin contains fiber and lots of minerals and vitamins, so it makes sense to add to lots of your baking. It also makes your creations moist and very moreish.
I keep banging on about experimenting with the basic recipes and doing something different, so do experiment and try some more unusual combinations.
