Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin Muffins

Not a bad job for my first pumpkin hunt!
I recently visited my Uncle’s farm in Alvarez in Argentina.  One of the most delightful moments was being tasked with going through the pumpkin patch and picking some delicious specimens for the many treats we made that day! 

Over the next couple of weeks I’ll post some of the recipes I scribbled down that day!

Here’s a delicious recipe for Pumpkin Muffins.

Pumpkin Muffins


1 ½ cups self raising flour
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon mixed spice
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ cup sultanas
1 egg
¼ cup vegetable oil
½ cup mashed, drained and cooked pumpkin
½ cup milk

Sift flour, salt, nutmeg and spice into a bowl, stir in sugar and sultanas. Beat egg, add the oil, pumpkin and milk, blend thoroughly.

Add the dry ingredients and stir until thoroughly mixed.  Turn into 12 well-greased , deep patty tins and bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees celsius) for 18-20mins or until cooked.  (You can add a few pumpkin seeds on top for decoration)!

Serve hot from the oven with lashings of butter!

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
