MSC - Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes/ Muffins
I would like to apologize for every snide comment I've made about Martha Stewart. Her deep attention to detail, her obsession with every seasonal turn of the calendar, her perky blond hair. She has earned the right to be as Martha as she likes. This is the third recipe I've made as part of the Martha Stewart Cupcake Club. Each recipe has been better than the last. They are all perfect and delicious.
If you go to the What the Whisk, the blog of Kim, an experienced baker, You'll see that she's given this recipe the full Martha touch, right down to making marzipan pumpkins. Hers are so beautiful, I'm glad I didn't even try.
Here it's post-Thanksgiving and we're still downing the last of the pumpkin pie - there's turkey soup for dinner - so I didn't bother with frosting for these cupcakes. They are perfect on their own. My only tweak was to use fresh grated ginger which gave them a bit livelier taste.
I'm sorry that I earlier in the month I didn't get around to posting my Martha Stewart Banana Pecan cupcakes with caramel icing. They were very delicious and I've never tasted anything like the icing with homemade caramel stirred in. Perfection! Here's a photo of this cupcake.
