Alternate title: You Will Thank Me for Sharing This Recipe With You Muffins…and a Dog.
Here’s what you will need to recreate this post:
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 can pumpkin
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ~3/4 cup vegetable oil (not pictured)
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- dash of salt
- chocolate chips to taste (1/4-1/2 bag. Depending on how your pants are fitting.)
- A Dog (Very important ingredient)
Step 1: Beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, vanilla and oil until smooth.
Step 2: Mix dry ingredients together and mix into pumpkin mixture…under close supervision.
Be sure to scrape the sides well. With your favorite spatula.
I was really excited when I got this Pampered Chef spatula for Christmas. I kept telling Nate repeatedly that I could scrape bowls with it. So that is the ongoing joke whenever I break out the Pampered Chef spatula. It’s my favorite. You can scrape bowls with it.
Step 3: Fold in chocolate chips. The next best thing after pumpkin.
Step 4: Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full. Or 2 tablespoon scoopfuls. (Should make 12 muffins.)
Step 5: Bake at 400 F for 16 minutes.
Step 6: Take funny photos of your dog’s mustache while the muffins are baking.
Step 7: Cool. (You can definitely eat these warm but we think they are much better cooled.) Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!
I’m really glad I discovered pumpkin this year. My life will never be the same.
I’m really glad Ike’s mustache is ridiculous. It makes me smile.
Who’s hungry? Do you have a pet sous chef?
