Pumpkin Muffins |Homemade muffin recipe


Muffins are like my twin edible sister - short,sweet,flavored and outta-shape !😎 Even our name starts with the same letter "M"/Yummmmm like made for each other .And I love my edible sister so much that I can't resist eating her .Irresistible she is !

(Muffin is a small baked cake which is usually heavier than cake or cupcakes )

This time I made Pumpkin muffins topped with broken walnuts ,soft ,spongy and tasty.Well, made these muffins for two reasons -

One,to feed my little girl "pumpkin hidden inside this cute looking muffin"😎. She didn't eat well though .Muffin is not her favorite yet ...😏😐


Second,to cheer myself up.It is this month (from Oct) that we usually go to India ,since my girl's birth ,to escape winter .I think it is becoming really hard for me to stay here for more than a year.I miss India and my folks badly .Moreover,my girl also loves being in India,she is happiest there with her grand-parents ,cousins etc ,which is how I want it to be.It is however difficult to travel with this naughty little lady by myself . I fear she may kick the pilot out of the plane 😀💥

So,not going to India really messes up my head and the fall season which is winter for me also messes my mood .I feel like a polar bear ,hibernating inside my house mostly or with a fur (coat) when I've to go outside .So,I am kinda brainwashing my hubby that (it's been yearssss here )we should go back to India FOREVER.


But he loves being here because of his job mainly ,so not budging yet .Even a few handful friends I've here think that I am silly and weird to think like that ..everyone wants to come here and settle down and You ? One of the reason why I've a very few friends here -I sound quite outdated to them like anpadd-gawaar at another level 😁

Reminds me of Keanu Reeves Quote, "I always felt like I'm not from this generation, I just live in it. Because the way my mindset differs from the majority, you'd think I come from a different dimension. That's why I keep things to myself because a lot of people won't understand me." HIGH 10 !

I don't believe in dating or falling in love trap ,but after reading all his quotes ,I wish he was my best friend ,a kind of special love - lust ...😛😎🙌 ..meaningful relationships regardless matters...


To my country ,

Main vapas aaongiI'll come back
Phir apne gaaon meinOnce again to my village
Us hi chhaon meinUnder the same shade
Ke maa ke aanchal seTo my mother's veil
Gaaon ke peepal seTo the peepal tree of the village

 Usually everyone would put fresh pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin puree for this pumpkin muffin which I hate (canned one) as it is not at all healthy ..however,I've used fresh grated pumpkins and I could hardly taste anything raw but it does say ,"I,pumpkin,I am there!" ...to slay baby....EAT ME ...and say yummmm ...

These pumpkin muffins are so tasty and filling for a perfect breakfast .Well,I can eat them anytime ...(non-stop ...oh my !No wonder why I sometimes look like a pumpkin or muffin 😖😱  )
