My parents came to visit us at our new place a few weeks ago. On Saturday morning, I woke up craving cornbread and thought it would be a nice treat to go with breakfast. The only problem was that I am out of cornmeal. So I was trying to think what I could bake based on the stuff I already had at home. That’s when I remembered the can of pumpkin puree that was sitting in the pantry! I had a leftover can from the pumpkin apple bread I tried making a few weeks ago. I had planned on making the bread for my parents but after failing so miserably with that recipe, I decided against trying it again. After looking through a bunch of sites, I found this promising recipe on smittenkitchen.com and gave it a go.
After letting the cupcakes cool, I used a small strainer to dust powdered sugar over these bad boys. I really can’t believe how delicious they came out. Even my mom was shocked with how beautiful and tasty they were!
I don’t care if everybody is making pumpkin recipes now. So what? It’s that time of year! Very yummy indeed…
