I've Been Awarded!

Julianna Danielle of The Perfect Parfait has awarded me! As I do the majority of my blogging on my main blog, Lianne Taimenlore, I never once suspected that Allergic To Chocolate would be so loved! Many thanks to you, fellow bloggers!! And a huge thank you to Julianna for the award!!!! It is a blessing to know my blog is great!

So, without further adieu, I shall proceed with the customary proceedings that usually follow a blog award...

Put a link to who gave you the award.
Put the award on your post.
Choose 5 blogs to receive the award.
Let them know you awarded them.

There are sooo many people who I'd love to give this award to!! However, I shall restrain myself to award the limited five. Since some of my followers have already been given this award (and considering that as of now, I only have five followers), I shall branch out to followers of my other blogs. 

And... I take pleasure in passing this reward on to:
Jessa Bri
Beth Grace
Miss Dashwood

Congratulations to all who were awarded!!

Crumb Cake Muffins

Another delicious recipe from my wonderful sister, Jessa Bri, and her blog, Who Needs Eggs? This happens to be one of the best muffins ever tasted on the face of the earth! The pumpkin she substituted for the eggs compliments the cinnamon flavor excellently!

Crumb Cake Muffins

1 3/4  cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup + 1/8 cup pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup flour
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400°.
Stir together topping and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. In a medium bowl, stir together milk, butter, pumpkin, and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add wet ingredients. Stir just to combine. Pour batter into muffin cups. Sprinkle on topping. Bake for 25 minutes. When cooled, sift powdered sugar over the tops of the muffins.
Yield: Makes 12 muffins.
