I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Pumpkin Apple Muffins

Going through the freezer I found some pumpkin purée from I'm embarrassed to say how long ago! But if you don't have pumpkin purée you can always substitute with sweet potato or butternut squash.

This recipe makes 30 muffins or 2 - 9 X 5" loaves.

4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2  1/2 cups sugar
1  1/2 cups pumpkin purée
1/2 cup applesauce
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsps baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice

1  1/2 cups diced and peeled apples
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar

In a large mixer bowl, cream together the eggs, vegetable oil, sugar, pumpkin purée and applesauce. Mix the flours, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice and add to the bowl. Mix until just combined then fold in the apples and walnuts. It's a big batch, the bowl will be really full!

Fill either muffins or loaf pans and top with the streusel mix.

Bake at 350°F - 1 hour for loaves or 25-30 minutes for muffins.
A cake tester should come out clean.
