Fall is definitely here. You can tell by all the pumpkin recipes swirling around the blogiverse. For the Tuesday with Dorie bakers, pumpkin muffins were on order, chosen by Kelly of Sounding My Barbaric Gulp.
I love any pumpkin and spice combination, so I was looking forward to baking these, with only slight modifications. Again with the raisins! Not for me. I substituted currants instead because they add the fruitiness but are low key. For the topping, I sprinkled on chopped pecans instead of the pumpkin seeds which I don’t stock in the pantry. I also only made half a batch, but did end up with 9 muffins, some of which I will freeze for future enjoyment.
Judging from the other TWD bakers’ comments, these muffins can be dressed up in many ways. The ones containing chocolate sound fine to me, so that is definitely a possibility for the next batch. I’ll be checking out what others have done over the next few days.
