Well, I wouldn’t call it a ‘new year resolution’, but one thing I want to do in 2016 is to venture into the world of cooking and baking. It’s been a dream come true to have my own kitchen and space and every day I just want to come home and spend hours in the kitchen making something. It’s such a stress reliever and mood lifter. When I’m sad I bake, when I’m happy the more I want to bake! 😀
I love pumpkin, and it was such a joy to find that pumpkin makes a great ingredient for muffins. Incorporate a little bit of cinnamon and nutmeg to further enhance the taste of pumpkin for a perfect combination! Use chocolate chunks so they melt in a imperfectly beautiful and rustic manner, and add walnuts for crunch. Yum yum!!
Here’s my version of Pumpkin-Chocolate Chunks-Walnut Muffins, adapted from 2 recipes. I tried three times in total, the second time I failed coz I forgot to put baking powder so they turned out like Japanese mochi instead HAHA.
