Pumpkin Ginger Nut Muffins


I think this is my fourth post on a Pumpkin-related recipe and my third Pumpkin puree based one. Please bear with me as I discover the joy of cooking with this delightful ingredient – in bread, curries and muffins!

I always loved pumpkin stir-fry, but I could never have imagined or known that this could be made into a puree to be used in a lot of baked goodies and desserts. After trying my hand at a few recipes, I am glad of this revelation and now next to Carrot cake, Pumpkin has taken its place as my favourite ingredient. 🙂

I also did try out a Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake in a small portion and I just loved it and couldn’t decide what I really liked more – the cream cheese or the spiced pumpkin.pumpkin muffin
