Pumpkin Cupcakes with Caramel

Pumpkin Cupcake with Caramel

It’s official today, it is fall in Hamburg, Germany! Did you know that fall is my favorite season? I feel there is so much to like, the leaves are turning color, I can finally get into my cozy cardigans and pullovers, sip some hot chocolate and enjoy being snuggled under a blanket with a good book to read. And the light! So soft, so golden, so nostalgic! Also, fall seems to have all my favorite ingredients: nuts of any kind, apples, pears, plums, and pumpkin. I usually prefer savory dishes with pumpkin, but since my hubby loves pumpkin pie (I don’t really), I thought, OK, why not try a pumpkin cupcake. Don’t ask me why I thought that would be the perfect combination. But it just popped into my head and I faithfully headed over to my favorite baking blog Sally’s baking addiction.¬† Sally produces one perfect recipe after the next, so I was not surprised that her pumpkin cupcake/muffin recipe was just as perfect as all the previous recipes I had tried from her site.

Healthy ginger muffins with no refined sugar

In February, I did a little experminet: I didn’t eat any refined sugar. For 24 days it was honey, molasses, raisins or dates. So I had to check what I could eat for breakfast because I like sweet breakfast. In February I would eat a slice of bread with peanut butter, molasses and banana, but that got boring. So I checked what else I could try. I know that it is not that common in Germany to have a muffin for breakfast. I mean, that sounds like eating cake for breakfast, right? Not going to happen during my sugarfree month. But if you think of a muffin without refined sugar and a lot of whole wheat flour, it suddenly doesn’t sound that bad. If you add some fresh ginger¬† (much better than ground!) and dark molasses to the mix, you suddenly got me interested. I enjoy mine with plain yoghurt. Try it, it really is an awesome combo!
