everyone has their own go-to version of pumpkin muffin what-have-ya, so i figure i'll add mine to the mix. snoozefest, i know. but i often come to the blog and search for an old recipe, so there's that.
i'm currently curled up at my desk with a cup of coffee in hand and roaring space heater at my feet. i dropped sam wiggins at the beauty parlor to gossip and ed is in philly for the day. i go through periods of completely forgetting that i have a blog, to putting it on my to do list to write a post, to having an actual urge to take (my own) photos and write something down. my sister-in-law may be the only person reading this post, but either way, it felt good to create something. funny how things change.
completely unrelated, we binge watched every season of scandal and i'm hooked. seriously, so much wine, popcorn, and making jam in vermont. for the love of god olivia-- go make the jam in vermont.
pumpkin hazelnut muffins
1/4 cup half and half
1 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup melted butter
1 2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp clove
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup roasted hazelnuts (chopped)
1. preheat the oven to 350F. combine the eggs, half and half, pumpkin, and butter in a large mixing bowl. i replaced the butter with applesauce (because i'm annoying like that) and it turned out just fine.
2. stir in the rest of the dry ingredients, adding the vanilla and hazelnuts at the end.
3. pour into a greased muffin pan and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
recipe slightly adapted from the baust family cookbook. how's that for a source?
