The people voted and Pumpkin Poppers won for this week’s Pinterest Challenge. The Tartiflette got a lot of votes too, so be expecting a post on that later this week. The Pumpkin Poppers were seriously super tasty, and no Autumn should pass by without you giving them a try. This recipe originally comes from Domestically Speaking. I really think the Pumpkin Poppers are simple to make and would be difficult to screw up. I even let my little girl help me make them.
One sad thing though, after Little Girl ate her Pumpkin Popper, we discovered that she just may have a cinnamon allergy. How sad is that? She has always had sensitive skin, and when she was really little, she would get a red rash around her mouth, after eating certain foods. We couldn’t ever figure out what ingredient was causing it, but perhaps it has been cinnamon all along! Do you think they put cinnamon in baby food? The Pumpkin Poppers are coated in sugar and cinnamon, which would be easy to get on your face while eating, so it’s got to be one of the two.
Back to these amazing Pumpkin Poppers. The steps are simple to follow, but please let me know if you have any questions. I’m thinking these are more of a breakfast item, but what the heck – you could serve them anytime!
- 1¾ cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- ½ tsp allspice
- ⅛ tsp ground cloves
- ⅓ cup vegetable oil
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¾ cup pumpkin
- ½ cup milk
- 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
- ⅔ cup sugar
- 2 Tbs cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350° and coat mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and spices and stir to combine.
- In a separate bowl whisk together the oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin and milk. Pour in dry mixture and stir until just combined. Fill mini muffin tins 3/4 full and bake for 10-12 minutes.
- While poppers are cooling, melt butter in small bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together remaining sugar and cinnamon. After poppers cool for a few minutes, lightly coat them in butter and roll them in the sugar mixture. Enjoy.
