tinkered muffins: fall edition
The rain stopped and left behind fallen leaves swirling around in the cool breeze. The perfect scenario for baking with windows wide open. The perfect day for baking pumpkin muffins!
Mix + raisins + applesauce + walnuts
Here's how I like to bake pumpkin muffins: easy-peasy. I start with a box of Pillsbury Pumpkin Quick Bread & Muffin Mix and then the tinkering begins ...
First, I cover a good handful of raisins with boiled water to plump them up. By the time I'm ready to add them to the other ingredients, they're ready, too. Just be sure to drain the water first.
I also add-in the contents of a small container of cinnamon applesauce.
Top with chopped walnuts
I follow the package directions for Quick Bread (1 cup water, 3 Tbsp oil, 2 eggs), add the raisins and applesauce, but bake the muffins using the temperature and time listed for muffins (400 degrees, 15 minutes).
So yummy for breakfast or a snack.
