Happy Fall! I'm now Mrs. Bowl of Mush ;) Our wedding was everything I ever hoped it would be and the cake was SO delicious!

Now that I'm all settled down and there's no more crazy wedding plans to take care of I can finally get back to blogging! This is my favorite season for baking. It's a time for warm, comforting, Autumn flavors.

These muffins are so delicious and very fitting to the season. They smell incredible. Originally they started out as pumpkin pecan muffins but this time I added chocolate chips and I was in heaven.
Pumpkin, Pecan & Choc Chip Muffins:
(makes 12)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (like canola)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 350F.

Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.

Mix together the wet ingredients and then add to the wet mixture.

Add the chopped pecans and chocolate chips.

Be careful not to over mix the batter for a lighter muffin.

Bake at 350F for 25-30 mins.
