I know it’s only one muffin now. There were 11. Only an hour or two ago. So that means this recipe is a hit, right? Woo hoo! One more foray into Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison…
I made a couple of minor adaptations to the recipe:
I do have candied ginger, but didn’t think it was the most PDD-friendly ingredient, so I used raisins. I used canned pumpkin that was leftover from pie-making on Thanksgiving, so I pulled that out of the freezer and defrosted it, and used that instead of sweet potato. This is your classic North American muffin recipe – mix wet, mix dry, combine but not too much, scoop, bake. The recipe suggests 10-12 muffins. I managed 11, but was a bit heavy-handed with the scooping, so would have got 12 had I been a bit stingier.
I’m glad I got to try one of these before my son and his friend devoured the rest. I’m also really glad one was left so I could at least put something up on the blog! They’re not very sweet – if I were making these again, I might substitute more sugar for the molasses (although that would reduce the iron content somewhat, and both my son and I could use more in our diets, I’m sure). Or maybe not – they were probably inhaled whole just as is. Yay!
Thanks once again to Uniflame of shelikesbento for hosting the cookbook challenge. I probably never would have tried this recipe were it not for the challenge, and it’s one more way of sneaking veggies into my child!
