The frost is on the pumpkin...

Muffins.  No wait.  It is unseasonably warm lately with night time temperatures in the fifties.  The average first date of frost here is October 9th, but I wonder when that will happen this year.  No matter, I didn't plant a garden this year,  I did, however, make these muffins this morning.  The recipe is from Micaela several years ago, but this is the first time I've made them.  They are wonderful!  Of course I tweaked them a teensy bit, but not a lot as I am prone to do.  Here is the original recipe, written in her own hand:


Here are my tweaks:
I used Namaste gluten-free baking flour, doubled the butter to 1 cup, did not use the streusel, and baked for 20 minutes at 350F.

The recipe above is in a little book that Micaela made for me with a few of her favorite recipes.  All the ones I have tried are delectable.  She took an old spiral-bound Campbell's Soup promotional cookbook and added some new pages in the front.  They are all handwritten, and thus easily smeared, but next time I will cover the page with plastic wrap before I start.
