1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Your Best Pumpkin Recipes!! on: October 09, 2010 12:30:25 AM
I just made pumpkin coffee cake muffins last night! They're AWESOME. (There are more pictures and junk my blog if you're interested.)

Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins
Streusel Topping
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground cardamom (if you don't like cardamom you can omit this or just use pumpkin pie spice or something - I just really like the way pumpkin tastes with cardamom)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

Muffins
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardamom (again - you can use pumpkin pie spice if you'd rather)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup pumpkin
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350F. Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners.
Prepare the streusel first. In a large bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar until light. Beat in ground cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, salt and vanilla. Working at a low speed, blend the flour in slowly until it is incorporated. Mixture should look sandy and coarse.

Prepare the muffin batter. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices, and salt. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in pumpkin, followed by vanilla extract. Working in two or three additions, alternate mixing in some of the flour mixture and some of the milk, ending with an addition of the flour. Mix only until everything is just combined and no streaks of dry ingredients remain.

Fill each of the muffin cups a bit less than half way up. Top each with a small handful of streusel. Divide remaining batter evenly over the muffin cups. Top each with a generous handful of streusel. If you squeeze the streusel tightly in your hand before placing it on the muffins, it will form nice clumps. Be sure to use all the streusel.

Bake for 17-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the streusel is lightly browned.

Carefully remove from muffin tin and cool completely on a wire rack before icing.

Vanilla Glaze
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. Drizzle over completely cooled cupcakes. Allow icing to set before storing. (If you don't the icing is kind of sticky and mushy and it's not quite as nice.)

Makes 18 muffins

I absolutely love these. I too have some leather jackets that I don't wear anymore, I think I've found something to do with them!

Hey Ela!! Your display looks great!

Here are a few pictures of our booth at Bazaar Bizarre. This was my first fair.


Full booth


Aprons & oven mitts - I need a better way to display the aprons; they're reversible so I kept unfolding them and showing people (which was okay, I sold a lot of them, but the one I was unfolding got wrinkly and I hate that). Space was pretty limited though so I'm not sure what else I could have done.


Coin purses and knit bags.


The rack my husband built for the booth. Our nice neighbor moved his table a few feet away so people would have room to browse from the opposite side. Space was so tight, but we'll have more display space at Renegade in LA.

I love the fabric! I used some of the octopus fabric from the same line for some kitchen stuff for my octopus-obsessed friend. I be your mom loved it. =)

Thanks! I seriously considered giving up when I realized I wouldn't be able to sew through all the layers, but I had all this stupid foam and I'd promised my husband the sleeve, so I just soldiered on. =)
