Pumpkin Choc Chip Muffins 南瓜巧克力满芬


Muffins again!  I happened to make these recently and since Pumpkin is the October theme for LTU,  I took the opportunity to join in the fun.   Not only are these muffins moist and delicious with the cranberries and choc chips, I just can't help admiring the golden hue of the pumpkin in these quick tea bread!
