Pumpkin Muffin with Orange Glaze

Pumpkin Muffin

Finally cleared the small chunk of pumpkin that had been sitting in the fridge for weeks! These muffins were moist, soft and fluffy. I baked 6 pieces but left with only 2 for photographing this morning! The original recipe called for raisin and nut, but I baked my without them. John picked up every single bit of raisin in oatmeal cookies I baked last week!

I don't usually glaze the muffin, but this orange glaze went really well with pumpkin muffins. Glazing them had turned them into a special treat, not just muffin anymore.

Pumpkin Muffin

Ingredients (makes 6):
½ cup mashed pumpkin (I used freshly steamed pumpkin)
1 egg, lightly beaten
⅔ cup brown sugar
3 tbsp fresh milk
2 tbsp vegetable cooking oil
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp grated fresh ginger

¼ cup icing sugar
¼ tsp finely grated orange zest
2 tsp orange juice

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine mashed pumpkin, egg, sugar, milk and cooking oil. Mix until well blended.
  2. Stir in grated ginger.
  3. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and ground cinnamon, then fold into the pumpkin mixture.
  4. Transfer batter into muffin cases and bake at preheated oven, 200ºC for 20 minutes.
  5. For glaze, mix together all ingredients and drizzle over warm muffins.

If you replace the orange glaze with chocolate, this will be an almost perfect Halloween post Lydia!
