Pumpkin & Rosemary Muffins

muffin 5

We always see so many sweet pumpkin recipes that we decided to experiment and make some savoury muffin. We have never made savoury muffins before so we were really looking forward to making these.

We imagined savoury muffins to be quite bread like, but when we took them out the oven and tasted them we immediately thought of yorkshire puddings. the texture was similar but thinking about it the ingredients we used are very similar to yorkshire puddings and not bread.
