Miriam Kairey is officially our Thanksgiving Hostess ever since she became famous for her how to roast the  Perfect Turkey  with Cranbery Relish Recipe! I gobbled these muffins at Miriam’s home while she hosted an entire film crew as we interviewed several more of our community’s elders for The Sephardic Heritage Museum. These pumpkin muffins were perfect as an early morning breakfast with piping hot coffee! Thank you Miriam! Marlene

“Hi Marlene!

I baked these hearty lowfat muffins yesterday  It is an original recipe (I made it up myself). This recipe is designed to take advantage of fresh pumpkin in season.  It is a healthy on-the-go breakfast or school snack. Pop them in the freezer and warm them up on a cold winter morning! Miriam”

How to make your own Pumpkin Puree:

  •  1 4lb organic pumpkin

Heat oven to 350.  Poke a few holes in pumpkin with a knife.  Place on a parchment lined baking tray.  Bake until soft to touch, about 1 ½ to 2 hrs.  Remove from oven, Peel off loose skin, and put in colander to drain off excess moisture.  When cool, peel, slice open and remove stringy center.  Reserve seeds for roasting. Chop pulp into cubes and puree in food processor.

Low Fat Pumpkin Muffins:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup white whole wheat flour*
  • 2 heaping Tbs. ground flax seeds
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp. each cinnamon and nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten.
  • 1 ¼ cup pumkin puree (or equivalent canned)

*a mild tasting wheat flour, available under the King Arthur or Trader Joe brands

Heat oven to 350.  Spray a 12 muffin tin with Pam.  In a mixing bowl combine flours, flax seeds, sugar, spices, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In another bowl mix yogurt, eggs and pumpkin.  Combine wet and dry ingredients and pour evenly into muffin tin.  Bake for about 18 minutes or until top of muffin springs back when touched.

Parve Pumpkin Banana variation:  Omit greek yogurt. Use ¾ cup sugar instead of 1 cup.  Use 1 cup of pumpkin puree instead of 1 ¼ cup.  Add 1 thoroughly mashed overripe banana to wet ingredients.

Mini Maple Chocolate Chip Pancake Muffins-Baked!

No Comments 30 April 2010

Pancakes are a must at a brunch, but I hate being the one in the kitchen doing all the flipping, while everyone else is having fun and eating. There is the option of making pancakes in advance and freezing them, but its just not the same as when they come out fresh.  So I  found this great recipe for mini maple pancake muffins on Bakerella.com

Generously grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan with non-stick spray.    


1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a medium bowl. Sift together with a wire whisk.
  • In another bowl, stir buttermilk, egg, maple syrup and melted butter until just combined.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. Reserve a few chips to sprinkle on the tops.
  • Bake for 8-9 minutes.

Makes 24 mini pancake muffins.

Let cool slightly and remove from the pan. You may need to use a toothpick around the edges to separate the pancake muffins from the pan.
Serve  with maple syrup.
