gluten free pumpkin cupcakes? muffins? … cupffins!

pumpkin muffins. gfandmeI was aiming for gluten free, dairy free pumpkin muffins but the resulting treats were so cake-like, I thought, “Maybe I’ve serendipitously come up with a recipe for gf pumpkin cupcakes?” Then again, I wanted to eat them for breakfast – and I just can’t let myself start eating cupcakes for breakfast. “So,” I decided, “they need a new name, something that encapsulates their light-yet-hearty crumb and spicy, sweet taste.” My first attempt was “muffcake”… but Geoff said that just didn’t seem right. In the end, I went with my next oh-so-creative idea: “cupffins.” Confused? Give them a try and you’ll see what I mean.

gluten free pumpkin tarts – mmmmmm pumpkin …

pumpkin tarts. gf and me 2013.I found this fabulous recipe for cupcakes on fantasy author S. J. Wolff’s blog,  Wolff’s Realm. I converted it and the result was awesome – they disappeared before I could even get a photo! So I made them again, added a ginger cookie and coconut crust, and didn’t tell anyone until I had a picture to post! The ginger and coconut flavours combined beautifully with the pumpkin, the crumbs added a bit of texture, and the tarts also came out of the pan easier.

This would also be great with Mary’s Magnificent Pie Crust!
