Recipe: Pumpkin Muffins


I know October is officially the pumpkin month and October is over now, but for me, it is still pumpkin season. I had made a soup earlier this month already, but I wanted to do something else with pumpkin as well. So when I found this gorgeous recipe for curry with pumpkin from Half Baked Harvest, I could not resist buying a

beautiful butternut squash pumpkin. It was however, way too big, so I had about half a pumpkin left. Another thing I wanted to bake for a long time were pumpkin muffins and this was, of course, the perfect reason to make them.

I used the following ingredients:
◾Half a butternut squash pumpkin
◾420 grams of flour
◾a teaspoon baking soda
◾120 grams of dark brown caster sugar
◾2 teaspoons cinnamon
◾a pinch of nutmeg
◾a pinch of cloves
◾half a teaspoon salt
◾2 eggs
◾a teaspoon vanilla extract
◾two tablespoons coconut oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celcius and put 12 paper liners into your cupcake tray.
  2. Measure out the flour, sugars,

    baking soda, salt and spices in a medium bowl and whisk together. Set aside.

  3. Cut the pumpkin into cubes of about 2 by 2 centimeters and cook them for 15 minutes.
  4. Puree the pumpkin in a bowl where you can add the other ingredients as well.
  5. Whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  6. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl of the dry ingredients and stir together. Don’t mix too long, but make sure everything is blended very well.
  7. Pour the batter into the cupcake tray and fill up almost the entire paper liner.
  8. Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes. Check them by inserting a skewer into the middle of a muffin. If it comes out without any batter sticking to it, your muffins are ready!

  1. Ik weet dat pompoen zoet is en goed smaakt met bijvoorbeeld kaneel, maar toch… het idee van pompoenmuffins levert nog altijd cognitieve dissonantie op in mijn brein. Maar daardoor ook weleens een leuke uitdaging om ze te bakken!
