I’m on a muffin roll at the moment, they are so quick and easy to make and I made these for my daughter to take on their ski trip this week.



  • 3 cups self raising flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 jar of home canned pumpkin or cooked and cooled mashed pumpkin
  • 2 – 3 bananas
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups cold water

Once again these are so easy. Just mix the dry ingredients, add the wet and the pumpkin and banana and mix until combined.

Bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees) for approximately 20 mins.


PS. I used home canned pumpkin from last season, and I have never seen canned pumpkin in the supermarket here in Australia. With this pumpkin you just need to remember to drain off the liquid.


PPS. These muffins would be great iced with cream cheese icing. I didn’t do this because they had to travel about 7 hours .


You will find me linked up at some of these great blogs.


    1. Thank you so much Suzie for your kind and encouraging words. Canning pumpkin is easy and you can even add bacon and onion so that you can just blend it up to make soup. Blessings to you and thanks for stopping by.

    1. Hey Lynn thank you for stopping by and for your comment. In Australia pumpkin is considered a vegetable and we eat it mainly with our main meals and it is really only the American influence that it is coming in more in our desserts. I looked it up and you can buy canned pumpkin in speciality stores but we don’t have any near us, they are mainly in the big cities. Blessings to you.
