Pumpkin Muffins

Fall is here, and I think I've gone baking mad! :)

I LOVE to bake once it's really cold outside!! I woke up this morning, and it was 55 degrees! We've been leaving our windows open, so I had to bundle up in long sleeves, sweat pants and even my house shoes when I got out of bed at 5:00!

I'd mixed a pumpkin roll batter last night and then put it in the fridge for some weekend baking. Well, I woke up thinking about that yummy mix, and I decided to make pumpkin muffins this morning! The roll is just too much work at 5am! So, simple muffins was the way to go!

They are delicious, but the batter is even better! If you try this recipe, you have to taste the batter (yes, it has raw eggs...oh, well) literally tingles your taste buds...maybe it's the teaspoon of lemon juice?

I made the filling from this recipe, too! It's a YUMMY sweetened cream cheese mixture, and I may just drizzle it over each muffin since I opted not to do the roll. The filling is like a cream cheese danish filling. 'YUM!' says it all!
Freshly baked and ready to eat!!

I have been following your blog and love the recipes you post. Can't say that I've been cooking for my husband like I should...but I've been printing them out for a day when I feel like making something new!!!
