(I baked at night and delivered early in the morning. Bear with the pictures. I had no choice this week…)Big goings on at work and home this week so this will be short and sweet. My observations on the Pumpkin Muffins.
- I have kids. I was hoping said kids would eat these muffins. Said kids do NOT eat baked goods with heretofore unknown green seeds popping out of them. No sunflower seeds for us. (Ok, only one kid ate the muffins. Shocking, I know.)
I am not what you might characterize as organized. At all. If you are organized and you come to my house, you will shake your head in dismay. If you are hyperorganized (and you know who you are) and you come to my house, your head will explode. Every now and then, however, I do get an urge to purge. On baking day, I found myself staring at three almost empty bags of varying chocolate chips. So, in a rare act declutterment (new word, I think), I emptied bittersweet, semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips into the batter. What? You think I measured?
3. I am impatient. I doubled the recipe and I got more than 24 muffins. After 24, I was done with the muffin tin if you know what I mean. I dumped the rest in a 6 in. springform and added some raisins for fun. I am calling it gigantimuffin (2nd new word!).
4. I need a little more pumpkin than most. Honestly, I was sort of wishing that I was eating the pumpkin whoopie cookies on Peabody’s site. I found these a little lacking. I liked the chocolate addition but I would have preferred more pumpkin flavor. A couple of people at work really liked them so maybe it is just me. I did like the raisins and chocolate together. Instead of making these again, I may just add chocolate chips to my favorite pumpkin bread.
5. I can’t format on this stupid blog. I am going to quite now before I throw my computer out the window.
