Weekend cooking - pumpkin spiced muffins

I know I said I wouldn't bake muffins for awhile but I had a lot of pumpkin and it's been cold here which is perfect baking weather!

I found the link to this recipe on a blog somewhere, added it to my Blog Recipes to Try list which is in my Household Organising File. The original comes from http://www.freequickrecipes.com/.

1/3 cup butter or margerine
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup pumpkin
1/4 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda (bicarb)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C)
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter with brown sugar
  3. Beat in eggs, then pumpkin and milk
  4. In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, spices, salt and baking soda (bicarb)
  5. Add to the creamed mixture
  6. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes
And this is the beautiful and tasty result....it smells absolutely delicious when it's baking

What do you do when you have to use up something in your kitchen?
