I barely had any 'trick and treaters' yesterday evening, as the pouring rain kept many of them away.
Although not intentional, I do like how the grated pumpkin looks like cobweb on the top. I just wish I had stuck a sliced sultana or raisin on the top too, so to mimic a trapped fly on the web... ah maybe next year.
250g plain flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon allspice
70g soft brown sugar
About 150g freshly grated pumpkin
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
60g butter, melted
Line a muffin tray with muffin cases.
Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, spices in a medium sized bowl. Then stir in the brown sugar and sultanas. In another bowl, combine the egg, milk and vanilla and then stir in the grated pumpkin. Slowly pour this mixture, along with the melted butter into the dry ingredients. Stir well until the mixture is well combined, but be careful not to over mix.
Spoon the batter into the muffin cases.
Bake at gas mark 6 for 25 – 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool for 30 minutes before serving.
