I have yet to get my sewing area back in order. I have a project I can do by hand for sew & tell tomorrow, but I'll keep it a secret. Instead of sewing I've been baking today. I used my SIL's (Laura) recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip bread and turned them into muffins (Go bug her to post her recipe and to finish her Amy Butler yoga bag for sew & tell this week!)
But let's be serious. They aren't muffins - they're cupcakes.
And I'm perfectly okay with that.
You can pretty much use any pumpkin bread recipe. Mine made 12 regular sized muffins (20 minutes @ 350), 1 mini muffin pan full (13 minutes @ 350), and two smaller loaves (probably should have been 3.... still trying to bake through the middle, it's been 45 min. Final time: 50 min.)
I had some pumpkin cream cheese from the deli and added a little butter and powdered sugar to make the icing. Delish.
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Icing
1/3 C pumpkin cream cheese (whipped or softened)
2 Tbsp melted butter (makes for easy hand blending, no hand mixer required)
1/3 C powdered sugar
dash or more cinnamon
Blend together with a fork and
