We have been having lots of Halloween fun this week with a Creepy Crate of goodies that the lovely folk over at Flora Buttery sent to us. More on that in a later post but first of all I wanted to share one of the recipes that we have tried for yummy pumpkin and orange spiderweb muffins. It’s nice to put all of that lovely pumpkin to use after you have finished carving them and this is such a great recipe idea. It’s really easy peasy too and there’s lots of stirring to be done so it’s perfect for getting little helpers involved.
First pre-heat the oven to 200°C and place your 12 cases into your muffin tray.
Cream the Flora Buttery and sugar together in a big mixing bowl then slowly add the 3 beaten eggs. Add the sifted flour and stir, stir stir until you have a lovely smooth batter.
Now add the pumpkin mash and orange zest and stir well before dividing the mixture between the muffin cases. Pop in the oven and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes.
Once the cakes are completely cool, you can begin to decorate them. First make the icing by mixing together the icing sugar with the orange juice just a little bit at a time. You don’t want the icing to be too runny.
Spread the icing on the top of the muffins then pipe the melted chocolate in a spiral shape. Now take a cocktail stick and drag it from the middle to the edges to create your spiderweb effect. It really is very easy to do, my girls did this bit all by themselves and I think they did a great job!
And there you have it, spooky pumpkin and orange spiderweb muffins – enjoy!
