Pumpkin muf-cake

by Lori and Michelle on March 15, 2011

Like we mentioned we craved cupcakes the other day. And due to high request for recipe, we just had to recreate them, oh darn ;)

It is not quite like a “cupcake”

gluten free sugar free pumpkin muffin

Has a dense texture, so has similar characteristics of a muffin.

So we are calling it muf-cake :)    It is a real simple recipe too!

These pumpkin muf-cakes hit the spot for us. Something about eating a muf-cake with coconut butter frosting…mmmm…not very sweet, but just right!

These are a perfect dessert for my candida healing journey :)   Shh, they are already gone, I guess back to the kitchen again.

Till next time,

omg this is so coincidental, I just made some pumpkin muffin-cookies with stevia. And they were sooo good, I’m going to post them soon.
The frosting looks amazing!

This recipe is so simple! I love that. I think I need to give them a try–I have everything at home already except the coconut butter. But I do have coconut.. so I can make some!

Janetha – yes, nothing like homemade coconut butter!

my obsession with cupcakes is going to make me try to recreate your recipe (I think you should make it available in twin city cakes so i can order some!

amazing once again! I’m going to make these tomorrow, or could you send me one : ). But had to tell you of my sweet treat today. I was craving my favorite coconut milk ice cream but its made with agave and doesn’t work with my candida cleanse, so I decided to make a slushie in my vitamix. It’s just ice and water then I made one with natural banana extract with vanilla and added shredded coconut. Then the other was almond extract with cinnamon and water and ice and vanilla stevia. It’s such a nice refreshing treat in this hot california weather!

Katie March 15, 2011 at 8:23 pm

I made banana muff-nuts a few weeks ago….very similar! Great minds think alike, if I may be so bold. :)

Katie – of course you can be bold! yes great minds think alike :) when we are eating fruit again we will have to try yours!

These look perfect!! I love how they rose and cracked on top. Definitely need to make these…thanks ladies :)

Ashley – haha, Lori hated the cracks on top, but I thought it added character :)

Casey March 15, 2011 at 9:02 pm

I make pumpkin cookies with extremely similar ingredients to this (I use just millet flour and stevia though) but I haven’t thought of a frosting! Yum! I am definitely going to try that addition. Looks so pretty.

Pure2 March 16, 2011 at 5:38 am

Casey – good to know you have recipe with stevia, as we do not know the result with stevia.
