Inside Out Pumpkin Muffins

King Arthur flour’s September Bakelong is Inside Out Pumpkin Muffins.  Twist my arm!  We love pumpkin, even when it is not even remotely fall-like outside.  These muffins are a moist, streusel-topped pumpkin muffin with a surprise in the middle of sweetened cream cheese.  They have been a big hit in my house and would be great for a company brunch too.

The recipe is pretty flexible and I tested that flexibility well as I was out of a lot of the ingredients called for.  An easy batter is made with either all purpose or white whole wheat flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour and nobody even knew it was whole grain), eggs, milk (I used almond milk), boiled cider (I had 1/3 the amount so subbed some honey for the remainder), brown sugar (I used coconut sugar), vegetable oil, pumpkin pie spices and leavening.  To fill the muffins, a small amount of pumpkin batter is placed in a greased muffin paper (it does stick).  A dollop of sweetened cream cheese goes on and then is topped with another small amount of batter. The whole thing is topped with a a streusel mixture.

The comments on the recipe said to be careful not to overfill the muffin wells, and they were right.  I used the measured amounts to fill the cups and had enough batter left over for 3 more muffins without filling and the 12 original ones rose well over the edge of the cups.  I also had a lot more streusel than I thought I needed, but I’m not really complaining!

Customized Tea Towel

I recently had a lot of fun turning a recipe of my grandmother’s into a tea towel for a birthday present for my mom.  My grandmother had written out this loose recipe for me when I first was doing my own cooking.  Like all of my grandmother’s cooking, it is a bit vague as she didn’t measure or use recipes.  I was able to use it to make a pretty good facsimile of her beef and barley vegetable soup though.

To create the tea towel, I scanned in and cleaned up the hand-written recipe on my computer and added a colorful border.  To make the fabric, I used the Spoonflower website to order a copy of the image printed onto linen cotton canvas.  All I had to do when the fabric got here was wash and hem it and it was ready to use.  Next time I would make the print smaller and embellish with some personal drawings of carrots and such, but I am pretty happy with how this came out.
