    Makes 12

    Ingredients

    225g plain flour
    1 tbsp baking powder
    125g butter softened
    125g caster sugar
    Quarter tsp salt
    1 egg
    200ml milk
    1 tsp ground ginger
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    100g raisins
    125g pumpkin, peeled and grated

    To decorate:

    1 tub vanilla frosting
    Green food colouring
    White fondant icing
    Black fondant icing (or colour white fondant icing black with black food colouring)

    Method

    Preheat the oven to 180°C fan. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with muffin cases.

    Measure all of the ingredients into a free-standing electric mixer. Whisk until blended. Spoon into the cases.

    Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes until well risen and lightly golden.

    Cool the muffins on a wire rack. Colour half the frosting green.

    When completely cool, swirl the green icing on top of the muffins using a piping bag with a plain nozzle. Make small balls of white fondant icing and flatten them to make the whites of the eyes. Make smaller balls of black icing and flatten them to make the pupils. Roll out black icing and use for eyebrows and moustaches.
