I am not very good when it comes of decorations: cakes , muffins, but I believe you can improve only if you keep trying 😉 This was my very humble try to make some Halloween Muffins 🙂 The muffins turned delicious and funny , I could say.
Ingredients for the muffins
- 1 cup pumpkin puree( home made or canned )
- 1/2 cup grapes oil
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup yogurt
- 2 eggs
- 1.5 cups flour
- 1.5 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
Ingredients fort he frosting
- 1 pkg ( 8 oz ) cream cheese, at room temperature
- 2 tbsp of unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla sugar
- 2 cups of icing sugar
Let’s get started
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 12 piece muffin tin with liners.
In a large bowl whisk together the 5 ingredients : pumpkin puree, oil, sugar, yogurt and eggs just until well combined.
In other bowl stir together dried ingredients: flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
Add the dry ingredients to the puree cream and whisk until everything is incorporated.
Using a table spoon or a ice scoop fill in the liners and bake them for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick is coming out clean.
Let them cool for 5 minutes in the tin and then remove them on a cooling rack and let them cool completely.
In a large bowl cream together the ingredients for the frosting until smooth and creamy and if the muffins were cooling down start to decorate them using your imagination.
Happy Halloween !!!
