Pumpkin Pudding Muffins
I was trying to find something different to make with pumpkin in and came across pumpkin pudding muffins by something swanky. This recipe had jell-o powder in, I'm not sure if you can get jell-o powder in england but I'm going to assume you can't because I'd probably be traipsing round the whole country looking for it; which I don't really fancy doing. I still couldn't resist trying to make these so I looked up a recipe for jell-o pudding mix and found one by Brown eyed Baker.
Although I can't compare these make your own to the bought jell-o powder kind these muffins were so yummy, they literally taste like autumn in your mouth. I may just have to start making these every year.
For the muffins
240 ml milk (1 cup)
60 ml vegetable oil (1/4 cup)
130g pumpkin puree (1/2 cup)
280g plain flour (2 cups)
110g sugar (1/2 cup)
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
If you're making your own pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground ginger
3/8 tsp nutmeg
3/8 tsp allspice/cloves
For the jell-o pudding mix
85g granulated sugar (1/3 cup)
25g cornflour/cornstarch (1/4 cup)
25g skimmed milk powder (1/4 cup)
1/3 tsp salt
For the muffin topping
1-2 tbsp melted butter
2-3 tbsp sugar
2-3 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the over to 200C/400F/Gas mark 6 and line or grease a muffin tray.
In a bowl mix together the ingredients for the jell-o pudding mix and set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together the milk, oil, egg and pumpkin puree. Mix in the flour, homemade pudding mix, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice/spices and salt until a batter forms.
divide the batter into the muffin tray, makes 12-14
Bake in a preheated oven for 14-18 minutes, I made 14 and it took about 14 minutes, if you're making 12 they may need to be in there for 18-20 minutes
Allow muffins to cool slightly then melt the butter and mix the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Dip/brush the tops with the melted butter and dip the in cinnamon sugar.
