Pumpkin muffins with white chocolate, makes12 small muffins
Translated from Matrepubliken’s recipe.
125 ml light brown soft sugar
125 ml sunflower oil
2 eggs
150 ml grated pumpkin (I used butternut squash)
1 lemon, the zest
200 ml plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsk cinnamon
150 g white chocolate 
Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Mix sugar, oil and eggs to a mixing bowl. Add the grated pumpkin and lemon zest. Incorporate well. Mix flour, baking powder and cinnamon in a separate bowl and add to the wet mixture. Fill the muffin cases halfway up. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry. Leave to cool. Melt the chocolate in a bain marie and dip the muffins in it (or spoon the chocolate on top of the muffins if you’re cases are too tall to dip). Leave the chocolate to set.
