After baking the pumpkin muffins this morning I did some cat-sitting and then looked after Riley for 2 hours. That was lots of fun. She loved my scarf so we had a bit of a fashion show.
RILEY looked so pretty
Then Cooper had to model
While Ozzy looked for treats in my purse (and found some) Cat-sitters carry treats...what can I say.
Here is the recipe for the pumpkin muffins.
1 cup butter
3 cups sugar
3 large eggs
Beat well together
In a separate bowl, combine
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon each of baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon & cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Add to butter/egg mixture, alternating with 2 cups pumpkin
Mix well after each addition
Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup raisins & 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Pour into 3 9x5x3 inch greased and floured baking pans
OR makes 20 muffins
Bake at 350 for 1 hour for loaf cakes or 25 min. for muffins
Hope you try them.
