Spiced Pumpkin Muffins

Stacked oatmeal muffins

As we all know, 1st October is National Pumpkin Spice Day so what better way to celebrate than to look at making spiced pumpkin muffins. As we get into Autumn, or Fall, spicy flavours accompany sweet flavours. In this recipe cinnamon is added to pumpkin puree, in the form of “Pumpkin Pie Spice”. I don’t recall seeing that in Sainsbury’s so cinnamon it is. The muffins in Renee Conner’s video bake in a pre-heated oven in just 15 minutes.

Making Pumpkin Spice

There’s a whole host of recipes and ideas round this time of the year and pumpkin spice can be applied to all sorts of recipes as this video shows us:

If you need more information pay a visit to https://sugarspunrun.com/homemade-pumpkin-spice-recipe/ but the main ingredients are ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg and ground allspice. You can use cloves too but it can change the flavour.

All this talk of seasonal spices has got me thinking about mulled wine but we’re a bit early for that yet. If you’re done with baking spiced pumpkin muffins maybe take a look at Delia’s Creole Christmas Cake though.
