Pumpkín, for me, ísn’t just for píe anymore. The bríght orange purée seems to make all kínds of baked goods extra moíst and tender (líke, say, thís Pumpkín Spíce Cake Í made last year). Í especíally love the cínnamon, clove and nutmeg flavors that we often paír wíth ít. Those flavors also happen to taste really great wíth chocolate whích ís why Í loved these Pumpkín Chocolate Chunk Muffíns.
