Charity Pumpkin Muffins

Yep it’s more pumpkin recipes! This time, for the final of Soph’s work’s charity bake sales for Kids Plate Pledge, I’m doing Nutella Pumpkin Muffins from this recipe. Not only is it pumpkin, it’s also using coconut flour which I’ve ben wanting to try for a while.

So it starts with the dry ingredients:

  • 75g coconut flour
  • 75g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp bicarbinate soda
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp instant espresso powder 
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

These get mixed together with a balloon whisk, and we move on to the liquids:

  • 4 eggs
  • 100g coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp vanilla

These get beaten in the mixer, then the dry stuff is mixed in.

This gets spooned into muffin papers in a muffin tin. Then a teaspoon of Nutella is added on top, and swirled in using a toothpick. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of this… but I did take a pic of the empty muffin cases :S

These go into a 160c fan oven for 13-16 minutes, until a toothpick comes out dry, and be careful not to just test the Nutella! Ours ended up taking the full 16 minutes. They don’t feel like set cakes at this point, but as Soph pointed out they’re not using eggs and flour, and have all sorts of extra liquids in them, so they’re probably not going to set like a regular cake.

These cool in the tin before tasting.

So, into the new cake carrier ready for Soph to take to work tomorrow.
