TWD~Pumpkin Muffins


I know, I know, its not Tuesday, but since i will busy both Monday and Tuesday nights I had to do my baking on a Sunday. I was really happy about making pumpkin muffins, so very autumnal. Did I make that word up? Sometimes I think I make words up. Acknowledgement is the first step to enlightenment.
When it was time to make the muffins, I was once again faced with the fact that my muffin tin that made 12 muffins grew legs and walked off. Where would a muffin tin wander off to? I mean sometimes I used to find my muffin tin making out with the cookie cutters in a dark corner in the pantry, but to up and run away on me is just plain cruel. So i had two choices, use my silicon heart shaped muffin molds or my JUMBO muffin tin (well not mine, hey Kelly, BTW, I still have your jumbo muffin tin).
I chose to make 6 Jumbo muffins.
Because:
A) I work at a Middle School
B) My co-workers act like middle schoolers
5) giving a heart shaped muffin to a boy co-worker would = rumors
x) Jumbo muffins have Just Friends written all over them.

I pretty much followed the recipe, but instead of Buttermilk I used vanilla soy milk. I don't have dairy products in my house, except butter of course. Because lets face it, soy butter is grody.
I also am not a big fan of raisins, nuts or seeds on\in my muffins, so I sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top. The results are these ginormous, yummy smelling treats. I think they would rock my face off even more with some pumpkin cream cheese spread all over them. Yummariffic! (i so just made that word up!)

by the way, i read your blog all the time. i feel like i am starting to get to know you. i'm feeling a little unfair and one-sided, because you don't get to read mine. i don't make mine public, but if you do want it, so we can be blogging buddies :), email me. i think my email shows up in the comments. doesn't it?

I always get accused of stealing muffin tins, I don't know why, I've only stolen a couple. But I swear I didn't take yours.

Am I either blind or have u given a code to other fav people? And by this I mean (really, why state things plain enuf for you to understand what I mean the first time around?), have u posted a recipe somewhere? I would love to try it.
(Please tell me it's not posted. Lie if you must. I would be every shade of embarrassed.)

Peggy said...

I love your made up words . .especially autumnal. I often make up words myself. Your muffins look great and I'm sure cream cheese would be fantabulous with them!

...sensible of shoe said...

Autumnal is a real word, don't go taking credit for words that already exist! Why do you have so many more new blog friends and how can I get them too?
