TWD: Pumpkin Muffins


It's no secret that I love muffins, so the TWD pick this week was right up my alley. Kelly of Sounding My Barbaric Gulp picked Pumpkin Muffins and I was excited to try them.

The muffins turned out great. The pumpkin flavor wasn't overwhelming and I loved the mix-ins. I followed the recipe exactly which called for golden raisins and nuts (I used walnuts). The muffins were also topped with sunflower seeds which was interesting and added extra crunch.

I will definately make these muffins again! Dorie continues to do it week after week! I know I shouldn't be shocked anymore by this, but it is wonderful to have a cookbook with so many delicious recipes that actually turn out!

Check out the TWD blogroll to see what everyone else did. I'm sure there will be lots of interesting variations as this group is full of amazingly creative bakers! Also, check out Kelly's blog for the recipe!

I'm glad these were such a winner, they look quite tasty. I went with pecans, but I bet walnuts would have been wonderful in these as well.

I loved these too. I didn't have golden raisins (have since bought some though!)

Love the new little photo of your little ones! They are adorable!

the pumpkin taste was really subtle, wasn't it? which is both good and bad, in my opinion. your photos are great...

Those Pumpkin Muffins look delicious - they are so cute sitting on top of the pumpkin. I'm also going to make them again - next weekend for breakfast, when I have a friend visiting.
