Well, as previously stated, I love pumpkin. I desperately want to eat and make pumpkin flavored everything. What a better time to start making pumpkin muffins than now? It turns out there must be a better time because it was a huge fail. I will walk through the recipe and why they turned out to be a failure.
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup oats
1/4 tspn Nutmeg
1/4 tspn Ginger
1/2 tspn Cinnamon
1/3 cup Applesauce
1 cup Pumpkin Puree
The steps included mixing the dry ingredients in one bowl and then the wet ingredients in another. Once both ingredients were combined thoroughly, you had to make a well in the dry ingredients. Then you pour the somewhat disgusting looking orange liquid into the well. Next combine both dry ingredients and wet, mixing well, until all lumps are gone. Sounds easy right? Well that part was but here comes the fail….
The muffins baked in a 375 degree oven for abut 30 mins. However, they did not bake! They were a sticky and horrible mess. I decided to bake them a tad longer and they finally appeared to be done. I let them sit over night to see what type of disappointment I faced in the morning.
In the morning, I took a look at my sad and tiny muffins that did not even rise. I tried to peel the muffin wrapper off with little to no success. It literally stuck to the muffin like glue! There were pieces of muffin paper everywhere, and when I broke the muffin in half, it was mushy! It almost looked like a thicker form of baby food. You can only imagine how upsetting this was. I wanted to have a delicious pumpkin muffin with my coffee in the morning. Instead, I got mushy trash. So. Sad.
So readers…here is my question for all of you. Does anyone have a delicious and successful pumpkin muffin recipe? I want pumpkin muffins so terribly.
