Over the last couple of weeks, I've had pumpkin muffins and pumpkin cupcakes on different occasions (I find it pretty impossible to say no to a pumpkin baked good). They were delicious, and perfect for Fall. It took a while, but it finally occurred to me that I could make something similar at home.
I got this recipe for pumpkin doughnut muffins from Martha Stewart (of course!). I had all the ingredients on hand, including 3 hungry kids and a pumpkin-loving mama. The best part is the cinnamon-sugar coating (but you could conceivably omit that part to make them a little healthier). I loved how sparkly they were sitting on our kitchen table - I tried to capture that sparkle in my shot:
Sugary, sparkly, pumpkiny - I'm definitely making these again!
