pumpkin muffins


I like pumpkin, so when the season is there I will always experiment some new pumpkin recipes.  I never made muffins before, so this was a good occasion to make pumpkin muffins.  I got the recipe from the following website.  I think they are irish, but I follow their website as they have a lot of interesting recipes.  Of course I will also add a dutch version on my blog, but as the original is english I decided to have the première here 😉
