Pumpkin & Choc chip muffins October 30 2018, 0 Comments

After carving our pumpkins we had a mass of edible flesh leftover so after scouring the internet and perfecting the recipe. These are the first things i've made.



60ml vegetable oil 

125g sugar

2 large eggs

200g pumpkin puree (either bake and blend or boil, drain and blend)

225g plain flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp bicarb of soda

60g choc chips (dark or milk)

sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg (upto 1/4 tsp for each spice depending on how strong you want the flavour)

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line a 12 hole muffin tin with cases.

If using a mixer simply put everything in a bowl together except for the choc chips and mix until combined. 

pour the mixture into the muffin cases and divide the choc chips equally between each. Push at least half of the choc chips below the surface with a cocktail stick or the end of a spoon. It's not essential to do it this way but with 2 children I like to make things as equal as possible to avoid the inevitable fighting!

Bake for around 15-20 minutes or until they start to turn golden brown.
