Some of you will have seen my post on Monday, a package arrived all the way from Arizona from my sweet friend Julie at The Tucker-Wolek Clan.
Some of you may not get my excitement ... we don't have canned pumpkin in Australia and I was surprised at how
real nice it was. Sounds silly, the only ingredient in this brand is pumpkin but sometimes tinned stuff can be a bit 'meh' but it smelt and tasted fresh!! Are all brands like this?? I'm now wishing we had it here :)
Julie included a really quick, simple recipe for PUMPKIN MUFFINS from a friend of hers
Toss 1 can of pumpkin & spice cake mix into bowl with 3/4 cup water and mix. There was enough mixture for 12 muffins and 6 mini muffins (these I baked for approx 6 mins)
Not sure if this is how they're supposed to look? Mine didn't turn out the prettiest but they sure smelt good ...cinnamon-y & spicy!
And oh they were so yummy warm with a good dollop of butter lol. Very moist and they didn't taste like a packet mix. I can't wait to try something else with the other can ... Pumpkin Frappe, Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting?? (thanks for recipe Nise) ... fun, fun, fun!!
Big thank you hugs Julie ... I can now see why you're all canned pumpkin fans. Love ya girl :)
... now for Callum's verdict ;)
