Tuesdays with Dorie - Pumpkin Muffins

I was so excited to participate in my first Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. I was even more excited when I realized that we would be making pumpkin muffins. Thanks, Kelly of Sounding My Barbaric Gulp, for choosing a great recipe!

My family loves just about any type of pumpkin baked goods and this recipe didn't disappoint!

I added mini chocolate chips to half of the batch and to the other half, I added raisins. The pumpkin/chocolate chips satisfied my cravings for my new favorite flavor combination and the pumpkin/raisin combo made my husband a happy camper.


Like many other have commented, I had to adjust the baking time. Using silicone baking cups, I baked these muffins at 400* for 17 minutes. They turned out very moist; but, they are a more dense muffin, not light and airy. I had a few left over so I decided to freeze them. They weren't nearly as good warmed up again as they were the first day straight out of the oven. I would recommend only making what you are going to eat that same day.

welcome to TWD, Tami - you'll love it! Your muffins look great! I would never have guessed that chocolate + pumpkin went so well togther till one of my nieces made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies a few years ago - they were great. Now I have to go look at your candy corn quesadillas - wouldn't I be the cool aunt if I made those?!
see you next week,
Audrey

I Audrey :) Thanks for stopping by to say "hi" this morning. Yes, I believe that you would be a TOTALLY cool aunt if you made the candy corn quesadillas!! I miss having the chance to spoil my nephews.

I totally agree with you about them being best the first day. These muffins were awesome the first day, good the second and not so great the third. I did like you and added chocolate chips, but I did it through the whole batch, replacing the nuts. Overall I loved them. LOVE your presentation, they look so pretty!

Prudy said...

Kimberly Johnson said...

Your muffins look awesome. I've never tried the chocolate-pumpkin combo - I'll have to add it to my list!

MaierHousehold said...

Both combos sound yummy! I may have to take this recipe and try it for myself!

Tami said...

Thanks, Amanda! I did the 1/2 & 1/2batches because of my husband...he loves raisins in everything. Gotta keep 'em happy, ya know? :)

Tami said...

Prudy, Thank you so much! :)

Luscious, Thanks for the welcome!

Barbara, Do try the raisins, too. They help to add a nice moistness to the muffins. :)

Tami said...

Kimberly, I would suggest trying the chocolate/pumpkin combo! I never would've thought of pairing the two but they have turned out to be my new favorite. Thanks for stopping by to visit!

Tami said...

Hi Mom (from the Maier Household)

:) The muffins are quick and easy to whip up but do only make as many as you will eat the first day. They are much better when they are fresh.
