Hello all. It is that time of year when it starts to cool down and I get in the mood for baking and cooking all kinds of things. So today starts my cooking fiesta.
I started with Pumkin Surprise Muffins and I am also baking some Pumkin bread for a friend. And I will give you the recipe for the muffins now.
Pumpkin Surprise Muffins. Yields 12 muffins.

1 1/2 c all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
