Pumpkin Muffins


We had a wee afternoon Hallowe'en Party,
this sweet little unicorn and I!!!
(She is the pumpkin of my eye).

While the darling magical creature napped,
we baked some pumpkin muffins
in case there are any goblins tonight.
(thankfully homemade treats are still acceptable here in the country!)

Taste test!

Pumpkin Muffins

4 Eggs
2 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Oil
1/2 Cup melted butter
1 ¾ Cups pumpkin
3 Cups all purpose Flour
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
½ Cup raisins
1/2 Cup Butterscotch chipits
Frost if you wish - I used a brown sugar icing this time.

Beat eggs; add sugar, oil, pumpkin and beat.  Add dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
Stir in raisins and chipits.
Fill muffin tins and bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
This makes 24 muffins.

Grammie, what a big nose you have!!!!

Twinkle, twinkle little love!


  1. Oh that little Unicorn is the sweetest thing and I can see why you are smitten. She is so cute! I think I might have just enough pumpkin to try your recipe! We are waiting here for our little trick or treaters to arrive...

  2. Well she doesn't look one bit scary. She's a dollbaby for sure. Did she like the pumpkin muffins? I remember getting popcorn balls and thinking that was the very best treat. I'm glad that times haven't changed so much that pumpkin muffins are banned for treats in the country.

  3. She is just adorable! Oh... and those pumpkin muffins look so moist and delicious.

  4. Absolutely adorable Unicorn - goodness how quickly she's growing! Such lovely memories you're creating with such a darling little girl who is so lucky to have you as her Grandma. Gorgeous photos, Rosella, and thank you for sharing!

  5. Oh my goodness. What a darling unicorn!! Love the photo of her at the piano!

  6. 'The pumpkin of your eye' is just adorable! Your pumpkin muffins look yummy too! Did you have many 'trick or treaters' come calling last night?

  7. Your pumpkin is just a doll! And I love that you added butterscotch chips to your muffins---they sound fabulous!!!

  8. So fun! Your "Pumpkin" is a doll! And what a nice thing that you can still hand out homemade treats! Those muffins look so yummy!
