Well things have been a bit busy lately - or I guess they haven't stopped being busy - but even with evyerhing else going on I just haven't been able to shake my itch to bake. I knew wahtever I made it had to involve pumpkin. Afterall, you can never go wrong with pumpkin desserts in October, right?? Wrong. I settled on a recipe for "healthy pumpkin cupcakes" and I guess I got was I was asking for. I gathered my ingredients and gave the recipe a whirl. Instead of moist, fluffy pumpkin goodness I ended up with what was basically a bran muffin with a pumpkin aftertaste. I left those guys un-iced and gave them to Joe for his daily snacks. Was that wrong?
Anyhoo, I'm still on the hunt and have a few recipe prospects in mind. I'm craving something like this guy from The Cupcake Blog - though of course mine will never look this good..
Or these delicious looking super pumkpin-y cupcakes from The Baker Chick.
I guess there really is no substitute to butter and white flour... or is there? Anyone? I willing to try again, but I really would rather not end up with bran muffins.
