Fall is in the air! The cool and crisp weather draws me back to the warm, cozy kitchen to start baking again. With pumpkin spice flavored items available everywhere, I wanted to put together a delicious spiced muffin. When you're on a special diet, there should be no reason to feel deprived or unable to eat fall treats!
I really wanted my parents to enjoy our beautiful fall weather and colors, so I asked them to visit us in the fall this year. We enjoyed a beautiful train ride in the mountains, where the aspens have changed to a brilliant yellow already, and I really started to feel like fall has arrived.
Back at home, my mom and I whipped up some delicious Orange Spice Muffins with Buttercream Icing. I am so happy with the results! They have just the right blend of pumpkin pie spices with a hint of orange flavoring to give them a refreshing, tangy zip.
We thought it would be fun to pour the batter into donut pans and make them even more special and decadent! Of course, they bake the same and taste the same...but there is just something luxurious and novel to me about biting into a donut!
