Pumpkin Muffins (Tuesdays with Dorie)

Pumpkin Muffins (Dorie Greenspan)
Dorie calls these, "Pumpkin Muffins."
I've renamed them "Super Delicious Tastes of Fall Pumpkin Muffin Delights!" Sure, a bit long, but a more accurate description!

Kelly of Sounding My Barbaric Gulp chose this week's recipe from Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours (page 13). Oh man. I love these muffins. It is my third time making them! I told you, I love these muffins!

I made them according to the recipe, but added pepitas (pumpkin seeds) on top. Next time, I will probably switch or combine the raisins with dried cranberries as many other TWD bakers did.

I made them once and baked them at the recipe's 400 degrees. However, I felt that was too hot and made them at 350 instead. Other TWD bakers took them out of the 400 degree oven early - so watch the time!

Nutty, raisiny insides!

I 100% agree with your amended title - these were wonderful little bites of fall! So cute too.

Hi Dorie-- I just made some the other day... don't you just love Pumpkin? I had to use winter squash (it is more in abundance here than the American Orange variety.)

Your snaps are fabulously fantastic, may I ask what type of camera you use?

Total agreement here. The name should be changed. They were rather incredible weren't they?
Happy fall to you too!

I love fall. And pumpkin. I put pepitas on top too--they were quite tasty--I don't think I'd had them before this. Your muffins look delicious!

Ha I love your amended title! I had a little mishap with these and didn't love them, but you're so convincing that I think I will have to try again!

Beautiful muffins. I loved the sunflower seeds on top, but the pepitas sound even better.

sounds like you've had a lot of practice with these ;) great job! yours look so nice, i love the deep orange color (mine were kinda yellow for some reason). i think i would do 350* next time as well.

Love the new name! I am looking forward to baking with pumpkin now that it's so cool outside.

I love the orange color of your muffins. They remind me of Fall! Those toppings make it look so appealing. Awesome additions and awesome job.

I bet the seeds add a nice crunch! Looks good!

What are the tiny paper cups for?

Oh, pumpkin goodness and yumminess! Pretty, pretty pictures, and I can almost smell them!

Jenny said... [Reply to comment]

Those look beautiful! I love the black background. I have been baking with pumpkin like crazy over here. I hope to try these too.

First time visitor to your blog! Love your up close photos. Also, I like the nut combo "crown." Don't you? They really look pretty and I imagine the saltiness of the nut is a nice flavor combo with the soft spiciness of the muffins. I'll have to try that next time. You must be a chockylit reader, with the cups. They make a pretty presentation. Great new name.

I suspect I will be making these again and again too as I am getting rather hooked on eating one each morning. I just removed tomorrow's muffing from the freezer so it will be ready to go in the morning!

Love your revised title! I might have to borrow that one next time I serve these! I've also made these multiple times -- we love them! Your pictures are gorgeous! Love the pumpkin seeds on top.

Mary Jo said... [Reply to comment]

Your pictures turned out beautifully! Pepitas did add a nice touch to this recipe. I love that you renamed them. The name totally fits!

I love your "Little Bites of Fall!" Lovely! The addition of the pumpkin seeds is perfect. Now, why didn't I think of that!!
