Phew I've been busy lately! I haven't posted much since Christine's wedding, whoopsies. Well I tried the most delicious recipe the other day. It was so delicious that I made it again this weekend and have been distributing them amongst my friends. I loooove pumpkin and all things Fall/Autumn in general so I decided to get things started a bit early this year. The original recipe was for pumpkin chocolate chip bars from Bake at 350, but I also made pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes with dark chocolate icing and spiced cream cheese icing. All were delicious but I think I would like just plain muffins next time, the recipe is a bit dense for cupcakes. Here are some pics of the different goodies:
Here is the recipe from Bake at 350:
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins/Bars/Whatever Pan you have around
1 1/2t cinnamon
1/8t cloves (you can also leave this out-I usually do)
1t baking soda
1c unsalted butter, room temp
1 1/4c sugar
1c pumpkin puree
12oz semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease/spray/line your pan. (This recipe will make 2 8x8 pans or 24 muffins)
In medium bowl, whisk together flour, spices, baking soda, and salt.
Cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in pumpkin puree. It will look curdled, no worries.
Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Pour batter into pan. Bake ~30min for bars ~18min for muffins. Cool completely in pan.
