March Food Blog Party

One of my friends is participating in a blog party showcasing some favorite recipes. Seeing as we have been baking a lot lately, I will share a yummy recipe we made this weekend. My girls love to help out in the kitchen and it truly is a great learning experience to read the recipes, measure out the ingredients, follow the directions and then eat the product of their hard work.

Apple Pumpkin Muffins
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (we substited a shake of clove, nutmeg and cinnamon)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup canned or cooked pumpkin
1/2 vegetable oil
2 cups finely chopped apples
In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In another bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin and oil, stir into dry ingredients until just moistened. Fold in apples. Fill paper-lined muffin cups 2/3 full.
For a crumbly topping, combine 2 tbsp of sugar, 2 tbsp flour, a shake of cinnamon and 4 tsp of cold butter or margarine. Use a fork to combine and sprinkle over the tops of muffins. This recipe made 12 muffins, plus had enough batter left over to make a little cake.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

OMG... that looks good. We made pumpkin bread today. BUT we used chocolate chips instead of apples. I have to say, it is so good that we are all eating a bit too much of the stuff. And I completely agree on the good learning experience... Cyan helps me every time and although she isn't quite to the actual "helping" part, as in, she doesn't really help. It is still harder to do it with her, but well worth it and we bake every week.

Babble babble... long homeschooling day today. ;) Craving mama contact.
