We all love the little spoils in life, no? My Recipe of the Moment today is just that. For those of you who enjoy Starbucks as much as I do (and I don’t even drink coffee!), this is a MUST try recipe! My “regular” as I walk into any given Starbucks would be a Vente hot chocolate and a Pumpkin Loaf. Well, to save a buck or two, here is a recipe for your own pumpkin treat!

1 1/2 cups raisins
4 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 cups white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
6 eggs
1 (29 ounce) can pumpkin
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup chopped walnuts

——–
STEP ONE ~
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and have enough cupcake papers for 3 dozen muffins. (The recipe will make about 3 dozen – 36) Soak raisins in hot water for about 10 minutes to plump, and then drain.

STEP TWO ~
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ground cloves. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, canned pumpkin, and applesauce until smooth. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until you have a smooth batter. Add the raisins and walnuts. Spoon into baking cups.

STEP THREE ~
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

PERSONAL NOTES:

~ These are muffins. They WILL turn out still sticky on the top.

~ Store in air-tight containers. To last longer, keep them in the fridge or freeze them.

~ When Hubby tried them, he said, “These are better than the Starbucks bread!” I think that had to have been the best compliment he’s ever given my baking!! ENJOY!
