Pumpkin muffins

Pumpkin muffins - is so wonderful and simple option for home baking, that you simply can not miss it! For those who dont like pumpkin, I may note that its taste is not felt, it only gives the dough a beautiful hue. Even more, the finished muffins can be safely freezed and stored in the freezer for a month, carefully pre-wrapped in cling film. To defrost just put them in a microwave for 1-2 minutes and they will be as if just out of the oven again =) I recommend!

  • 1. If you have a raw pumpkin, clean it from the seeds and peel, then cut into small little slices. Spread the pumpkin on a sheet of parchment paper, cover with another sheet and seal all the sides to make a neat envelope. Make several longitudinal cuts on the top with a knife for steam to come out.
  • 2. Preheat the oven up to 160 C or 325 F.
  • 3. Put the baking pan in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until soft pumpkin. Then cool the pumpkin completely and make puree with a blender.
  • 4. Sift flour mixed with baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in a bowl. Mix thoroughly. In a separate bowl beat butter, sugar and salt with a mixer, until it becomes white and lush. Not stopping to whisk, add all the eggs one by one.
  • 5. Then enter the pumpkin puree and mix it with a spatula. Add the flour mixture with spices and mix thoroughly until smooth. In the end, enter raisins and almost all pumpkin seeds, leaving just 2-3 tbsp for the topping, stir again.
  • 6. Preheat the oven up to 180 C or 350 F.
  • 7. Put the dough into the molds for muffins or in a special baking pan, filling them 2/3 full, sprinkle with the remaining pumpkin seeds. Put into the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until a sample for a dry toothpick. Then get it out, cool and serve.
