Pumpkin Muffins with Thermomix

Pumpkin Muffins with Thermomix
I came up with my very own Pumpkin Muffin recipe because lately my daughter has been asking more and more for pumpkin, and there is nothing I wouldn't do to keep this passion going!

We watched Cinderella a few nights ago, and since then everything has been about squash, mainly zucchini, pumpkin and zucchini flowers :-). She absolutely adores pumpkin-based dishes and I'm so happy about it that I have created enough recipes to make a whole cook-book out of them! Risotto, side dishes, desserts... everything prepared with her favourite squash!

This recipe is the latest outcome of my recent cooking experiments: I hope you like it as much as my daughter does. I sprinkled sugar and cinnamon on top, even though these are savoury muffins, and I reckon it's a perfect match. What do you think?

If, like my daughter, you too have a thing for pumpkin, make sure you check out the pumpkin croquettes, the pumpkin flan, and the pumpkin soup.

My Advice

The pumpkin can also be cooked in the oven.

You can spice up your muffins with other spices.
