Due to unforeseen circumstances, we postponed our Healing Hearts Gala scheduled for Nov. 22 2014 . We’ll be holding it in the spring instead and the date has been confirmed as March 12, 2015. We hope to see you there!
Here’s a seasonal recipe that was a big hit in last week’s our “Healthy Choices” class.
Pumpkin Spice Mini Muffins
Adapted from Paula Deen’s Pumpkin Bars
This recipe makes 4 dozen mini muffins OR 2 dozen mini muffins plus an 8×10″ cake pan OR a single cake using a 10 x 13″ cake pan
Note, if you’re using mini muffins preheat the oven to 425. If you’re baking a pan, preheat to 350 instead. If you’re doing both at the same time, split the difference at 375. Grease your pan(s) with butter or use muffin liners.
Using a handheld beater or standing mixer, beat wet ingredients together until frothy: eggs, pumpkin, oil and apple sauce. Add the sugar. Put a sifter over the mixing bowl and add the flour, wheat germ, spices, baking powder, salt and soda. Sift into the bowl then stir together, breaking up clumps but don’t over-mix. Stopping at just the right time, when everything is well incorporated, will keep your cakes fluffy.
Fill pan(s) about 3/4 full and bake.
Mini muffins: 8-10 minutes (425 degrees F)
Regular muffin pan: 15-17 minutes (375 degrees F)
8 x 10″ pan: 25 minutes (350 degrees F)
10 x 13″ pan: 30 minutes (350 degrees F)
While your cake(s) are cooling, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
