Mini Pumpkin Butterscotch muffins will change your parties
No party is complete without the customary appetizers and desserts. When preparing food for a lot of people, one should think about how messy it will be, how many people will actually eat the dish and the problem of dirty hands. One way to avoid guests getting contaminated food is by making everything as miniatures. From the entreè to the dessert, this will keep people from taking more than they can eat, and it can provide for easy clean up. These cute little treats will not only make your life easier, but they will be appreciated by your guests as well.
Mini pumpkin butterscotch muffins are just one idea. You can find everything you will need easily at any supermarket in your area. The measurements and ingredients are 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 cup canned pumpkin and 1 6-ounce package of butterscotch chips.
Once you have all of your ingredients, you can begin to prepare, cook and then eat. First, you will want to preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Then, grease your mini-muffin pan with cooking spray or use little muffin papers. Next, you will sift together the flour, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Then, whisk together the eggs, butter and pumpkin in a separate bowl. After both are thoroughly mixed, add the flour mixture with the egg mixture, stir in the butterscotch chips then pour it into the muffin pan until the cups are about 3/4 full.
Bake them in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. These little muffins would be great at any party, especially one involving children since the muffins are lot a smaller and less messy. These muffins would also be good in the company of tea and a nice book club meeting or even just a simple family reunion.
Muffins, however, are not the only item that can successfully be made in miniature size. This technique can be used on almost any item that you want to have at your party. You could even make mini meatball subs for your game day party simply by buying miniature buns and placing one meatball inside, along with various cheeses. These simple subs are bite size and easily consumed without the potential messiness that comes with the larger version. Mini foods are fun, easy and enjoyable. Make sure to include them at your next friendly gathering.
