Pumpkin Muffins

The one in the back is deformed, quick eat it first

So you made yesterday’s pumpkin dip right? What, you didn’t? Go do that and come back. Or mix roughly equal parts of philly or mascarpone with pumpkin puree and you’re good to go. (Test the batter to adjust the sweetness.)

Pumpkin Muffins

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup pumpkin dip
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, roughly
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs

Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In another bowl mix eggs and wet ingredients. Add wet to dry and mix into a smooth batter. If too stiff add more buttermilk. If too wet add more flour. The consistency should be that of thick pancake batter. Grease two muffin trays and spoon batter in equally. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees until done, about 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before serving.

    You always need to make at least one deformed muffin for immediate taste-testing purposes. Obvs.
