I haven't seen canned pumpkin here in Ireland, but I have managed to get a real one. Can anyone tell me if the stuff in a can is cooked or if all I have to do is measure out half a cup of the raw flesh for this delicious recipe?
Thanks,
Babs

Wow Becki - that muffin looks delish!!!

But it reminds me of a joke that plays well to Cub Scouts.

There were 2 muffins in an oven.

One muffin says, "It sure is HOT in here"!

The other muffin says, "Ahhhhhhhhhhh, a talking muffin!!!"

Bad joke, I know, but it popped in my head this morning. I just might have to make a variation of these this weekend.

Glad you liked them!

I made another double batch this morning and added in just a touch more sweetener. I'll see how they taste in the morning and report back.

Babs, there are actually two kinds of canned pumpkin sold here in the US. One is just pureed pumpkin and the other is pie filling. They both are cooked I believe. I would do a search on google or a site like allrecipes.com on preparing pumpkin. I don't believe it is huge project to make it, but there is little difference in homemade pumpkin and the canned version.

I just saw a program here recently that said our (American) tradition of carving jack-o-lanterns into pumpkins came from Irish immigrants that carved faces into turnips and rutabegas for the holiday Samhain?

Thanks Ed - yes, Samhain (pronounced sow [rhymes with how]-in) is Halloween here, but I've never made anything out of/with turnips, apart from mash to serve with spuds ... and I still miss those
We have only begun to see real pumpkins here in the last few years and I've never cooked with them, so this will be a first.

They are even better!! I added an extra 3-4 drops of sweetzfree, and they are just a touch sweeter.

You can use granular Splenda, just adjust the carb counts. The batter may also be a tad dry, so maybe add a bit more water?

I forgot to note in the original recipe that the carb counts given are for liquid sweetener.
