Tis the Season for Pumpkin

South Florida is awful for a couple reasons:
  • Everyone but me is an awful driver
  • All stores are located in a strip mall
  • Palm Trees are considered “classy”
But the most important reason why South Florida sucks? No seasons. Up in beautiful Tallahassee, we are graced with Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter! A cold front has brought in some delightfully chilly weather for Fall the other night which automatically turns on my craving for anything pumpkin/fall-flavored. My friend Josh made some delightful Pumpkin Muffins with lemon glaze to celebrate the season, what us South Floridans are so unfairly deprived of. (I don’t have the recipe for the lemon glaze, but I’ll put it up when I do!)

Autumn Pumpkin Muffins

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or line 2 muffin tins.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ground cloves. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, pumpkin, and applesauce, until smooth. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and stir thoroughly to make a smooth batter. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
