I had excess pumpkin that needed using up this weekend. I roasted and mashed it and then had to decide what to do. So, I decided to try muffins.
I used a really basic recipe; dry ingredients of wholemeal flour, baking powder and soda, cinnamon, ground ginger, brown sugar, walnut pieces and wet ingredients of butter, oil, the mashed pumpkin, milk and eggs.
The result? Yum. A lovely texture, nice and moist with good flavour. The roasted pumpkin (as opposed to boiled or microwaved) gives a much nuttier taste which I really like.
I topped the muffins with cinnamon sugar, made with raw sugar. Yum
