Okay, so I lied – it’s pumpkin muffins, not pie this week. And I’m cheating a little because this is from smittenkitchen.com instead of one of my recipe books – BUT I’ve had a really busy week and I’ve got another busy week ahead of me, and I wanted to make something that was still full of pumpkin, but also much easier for me to snack on. And easier for me to quickly make on a Sunday evening because I haven’t had time the rest of the week.
Being a masters student is busy, and I’ve just got a job, so it’s going to be even busier, and, shocking I know, I almost forget to want to bake. But if there is a week when I have enough time to make pumpkin pie before the end of the year, I will. We’ll just have to see how the whole work-study-life balance works out. Enough about me though, let’s talk muffins!
These are super simple to make and they taste like autumn, all friendly and spicy and delicious. I didn’t put the cinnamon sugar on the top because I’m lazy – but in hindsight I definitely should have. These are pretty great as savoury muffins, but if you wanted to make them sweeter, then I’m pretty sure they’d go really well with cream cheese icing (instead of the cinnamon sugar).
The recipe can be found here, and I hope you’re all enjoying your autumn!
Next week is going to be a surprise because I’m so tired at the moment that I can’t decide what to bake next. Zzzzzz
