Time for Pumpkin

Pumpkin muffins that is…

Okay – it is officially Fall.  I turned down the AC, and decided it was time to bake.  I found this recipe for pumpkin muffin tops at Liluna.com and decided to give a whirl.

We followed the instructions, or so we thought, and it was runny.  Really too wet, like we didn’t add enough flour.

Well we didn’t add enough flour (actually we were missing half of it!).

So we followed the recipe this time, (added the correct amount) and we used a brownie pan to hold everything together.

These were not bite sized but a good snack.  I really did enjoy the bite I had.  Took a bunch to work as it ended up making about 60 of them.  We sent a package to Carmen as well.

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
