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?

Which seeds do you prefer to put on your pumpkin muffins?
1) pumpkin
2) poppy
3) sesame

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.
