It's common for artisinal cheddar cheeses to mature in caves.


Ingredients

2 eggs
2/3 cup (160 mL) brown sugar
1/4 cup (60 mL) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup (250 mL) homemade or store-bought pumpkin purée
2/3 cup (160 mL) milk
1/2 tsp (2 mL) pure vanilla extract
1 cup (250 mL) wheat bran
1 cup (250 mL) quick-cooking oat flakes
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) unbleached flour
2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda
1/2 cup (125 mL) bittersweet chocolate chips or chunks
3/4 cup (180 mL) Canadian Mild Cheddar, diced

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350oF (180oC). 

In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs with the brown sugar. 

Add melted butter, pumpkin purée, milk and vanilla extract. 

In a large bowl, mix remaining ingredients and make a well in the centre. 

Pour liquid ingredients into the well and mix just until combined. 

Divide batter into a muffin pan, greased and floured, or use paper muffin cups. 

Bake in oven for 25–30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. 

Note:

To make homemade pumpkin purée:

  • Wash exterior of pumpkin and cut in half. Remove seeds and fibrous parts. Cut into large chunks.
  • Put pumpkin chunks, with peel facing up, in an oven-safe dish.
  • Bake in an oven preheated to 350°F (180°C) for about 1 hour or until tender.
  • Using a spoon, remove flesh and thoroughly drain. Discard peel. In a food processor, blend pumpkin flesh to a purée.

Approximately 1 lb (450 g) of pumpkin yields about 1 cup (250 ml) of purée.

Purée can be frozen and kept for several months.

Tips

For a delicious variation, replace pumpkin purée with apple or banana purée.
