A friend of mine is fundraising for Team in Training, I donated the baked goodies. I made 5 different kinds of fudge, cherry pie pops and pumpkin cream cheese muffins.
The muffins are not a far cry from the pumpkin spice cake roll I posted a while back, but in cupcake form. Here is the simplified recipe, enjoy!
Pumpkin cream cheese muffins
2 cups flour
6 large eggs
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 can pumpkin pie mix (with spices)
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 package cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
preheat the oven to 350. Mix flour, salt and baking soda, then add eggs and pie mix. In a large ziploc bag, incorporate the cream cheese and vanilla, kneading the bag from the outside (keeping your hands clean!). Line your cupcake pan and fill about half way with batter. Cut off a small corner from the bag and pipe a small amount of cheese into the batter.
Bake for about 18 min or until cupcakes look done and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the cake.
