Trader Joe's Pumpkin Muffins

I was interested to test this box of Trader Joe's pumpkin bread/muffin mix that my sister Judy gave me. She swears by it and, she's right - it's good. Here's a link to someone who blogged about comparing it to homemade pumpkin yeast bread. That's not exactly an equal comparison because this is in the quick bread category. The reason Trader Joe's and others can make a mix comparable to a loaf made with canned or fresh pumpkin is that pumpkin can be dried and ground into a flour-like substance. Add some eggs and oil and you're ready to go.

I served them with this mandarin pumpkin marmalade, which was also good.
