It's Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and that brings cooler weather, changing leaves and pumpkins! Pumpkin patches pop up everywhere this time of year, and, while most of the pumpkins sold there aren't the tastiest varieties, that doesn't mean we can't talk about our favorite pumpkin recipes!
The House Elves want to know...What's your favorite pumpkin recipe?
Here's mine, we make these every year-
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup shortening
1 beaten egg
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup golden raisins (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix all dry ingredients together thoroughly. Cut in the shortening until fine. In a separate bowl, combine egg, pumpkin and milk. Add this to the dry mixture and mix until just moistened. Stir in raisins. Fill greased muffin pans 2/3 full. (this recipe is for 12 muffins) If desired you can sprinkle a little sugar on top of each muffin. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
