Fragrant pumpkin muffins with cheese

Servings: 12 pieces Cooking time: 50 minutes


Pumpkin muffins can be prepared as soon as the heat of the summer passes. Pumpkin has a sweet flavor and dense fibrous texture is well suited for baking in the autumn and winter months.

When you add the pumpkin puree in the dough, itgets a beautiful golden brown color and a moist dense texture. Sweet desserts from pumpkins tend to go well with the spices that have a warm, rich and spicy, warming flavor.

I like to add the ground cinnamon, ginger, cloves and zest of citrus (orange and lemon).

Pumpkin muffins go well with cheesestuffing. They look like chocolate cakes, but instead of chocolate we use pumpkin. You can even sprinkle on top of pumpkin cupcakes with chopped pumpkin seeds, if you like.
