Except you do. Because come on, just look at it. Or them. Or whatever…let’s get to baking them up! Your batter is a glorious mix of all those good things I just mentioned, along with a few more spices (ginger, of course!), the usual suspects of flour and eggs, and some buttermilk. Because we are using pumpkin puree (yes, the regular old kind in the can) you don’t need to add oil or butter, so this is practically health food we are talking about here.
Once your muffins are baked and cooled, you really do need to add that glaze. It’s a simple mixture of powdered sugar, water and vanilla, and I like to stir mine up in a small measuring cup with a spout. That way you can simple pour it on right from the measuring cup.
So go ahead…make yourself a present of these babies. You deserve it!
