Breakfast baking!

So when I woke up this am, I had a hankering for some warm, fresh muffins! What better to make a batch of than pumpkin muffins… After a surprise treat a few days ago of these same muffins from a dear friend who lives in my neighborhood, I just had to make a batch!
All it takes is flour, salt, pumpkin pie spice [be forewarned this stuff is NOT cheap], baking soda, sugar, eggs, olive oil [I got this little tip from my friend], orange juice and of course pumpkin!
All of the dry ingredients are sifted [minus the sugar] into a bowl, while the sugar and the wet ingredients are added to the standing mixer.
The wet ingredients were beaten until combined; then the dry was gently added in and mixed on low speed until just incorporated. Then a few go-arounds with the spatula to ensure we were good and nothing was unmixed!
Two lined muffin pans got ice cream scoopfuls of this heavenly scented batter, a quick smack on the counter and it was into the oven for a half hour. During the baking, the house filled up with an incredible scent of fall spiciness… the muffins were done once a toothpick came out clean!
Who could wait till they cooled down? Not us, we broke them open, while still warm and steaming…
Thank goodness this batch made twenty-four because we’re hooked!

at a low simmer…
