Pumpkin and orange spider muffins
Yummy pumpkin and orange muffins with a spooky liquorice spider topping. Perfect for some Halloween baking fun with the kids!

175g Stork baking liquid

175g golden caster sugar

300g self-raising flour, sieved

3 medium eggs

5 tablespoons Just Milk

½ teaspoon baking powder

100g cooked pumpkin or butternut squash, mashed

50g chocolate and hazelnut spread

1 zest of an orange

115g Billington's golden icing sugar (for the topping)

2 teaspoons orange juice (for the topping)

55g plain chocolate, melted

Set the oven to 200°C/180°C (fan assisted)/Gas mark 6 and place 12 muffin cases into a muffin tray.

Place the Stork baking liquid, golden caster sugar, self-raising flour, eggs, milk and baking powder into a bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth.

Stir in pumpkin mash and orange zest and divide half the mixture evenly between the paper cases, add half a teaspoon of chocolate spread and then top with the remaining mix.

Bake in a pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes. Remove and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Add a little orange juice to the icing sugar until thick and spread over the muffins.

Pipe the melted chocolate in 4 circles over the top and then drag a skewer through to give the cobweb effect. Place sweets and laces on top to look like a spider if you like!
