Pumpkin spice muffins
Hey, friends! How’s November treating ya? Aside from the shorter days and chilly mornings, I think Autumn has so much to offer. An excuse to snuggle up under blankets, drink even more herbal teas and play with new seasonal ingredients, pumpkin being a favourite right now! These pumpkin spice muffins are gently spiced and warming, just the thing with a hot cuppa for breakfast. They’re also the perfect way to use up any pumpkin or squashes you have hanging around your pantry, I’m still working my way through the backlog.
I’ve used cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg and allspice in these babies, but feel free to adjust the spices according to your taste, I just love any excuse to use all of them together. Nothing smells more seasonal to me than the smell of cardamom and nutmeg baking in the oven. They’re also made with spelt flour, which I’m diggin’ for it’s wholesome, subtle nutty flavour. If you find regular flour bloats you, give spelt a go, spelt gluten is water soluble and easily broken down by heat, so it’s easier to digest. It’s also packed with many nutrients, minerals and vitamins that you just don’t get in regular wheat flour.
I rarely see pumpkin puree in tins over here, so tend to make my own. I’ve included some instructions on how to make your own pumpkin puree below, if you make too much it’s great for adding to pancakes, oatmeal and pasta sauces, win win! Much better for the environment to make your own too.
Thank you for stopping by and feel free to leave me a comment below or on my page on Instagram, I’d love to hear from you!
- 2½ cup spelt flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ground cardamom
- Pinch of ground cloves
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- ½ tsp allspice
- 5 tbsp vegan marg
- 1 cup light brown sugar/coconut sugar
- ¼ cup veg oil
- 1 cup pumpkin puree*
- 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp flax mixed with 5 tbsp water)
- ¾ cup buttermilk (3/4 cup soya milk and 1 tsp apple cider vinegar)
- Preheat oven to 190•c and line a 12 cup muffins tin with cake cases. In a large bowl, mix spelt flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, all spice and cloves.
- In a medium bowl beat together vegan margarine and coconut sugar until well combined, or cream together with the paddle attachment of a stand mixer. Make flax eggs and set aside for 2 minutes to thicken.To the margarine and sugar, add oil, pumpkin puree, flax eggs and vegan buttermilk. Mix well until smooth. Fold in the flour mix until just combined into a batter. Try not to overmix, or the muffins will be heavy.
- Fill each cake case ¾ full with the mixture and sprinkle on pumpkin and sesame seeds and extra coconut sugar if desired. Bake for 23-25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Extra delicious served warm with a piping hot cup of tea, but keep well for up to 4 days in a tin.
Chai latté donuts
Happy October, friends! It’s that time of year when I’m baking almost every day, it’s my favourite way to spend time indoors. These chai latté donuts are so delicious and moreish, plus they’re mini so you can get away with having a few at once. They’re frosted with a seriously creamy cashew icing, that’s refined sugar free but just as creamy and lush as you’d expect. I added some cacao to the mix, as I think it gives that rich latté flavour I was craving. Finished with a dusting of cinnamon and cacao, these little chai donuts are a joy to eat….
