Recipe Time!

October 16, 2013

I can’t recall where I got this recipe, but I’ve been making these muffins each fall for several years now. They are terrific – moist, perfectly textured and lots of spicy, pumpkin-y goodness. Try them and I guarantee they will be an instant hit!

2 cups pumpkin puree
2/3 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 1/2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon cloves
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups white flour
1-2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line a muffin pan with paper liners.
- Mix ingredients in a large bowl in the order given, until thoroughly mixed but not over beaten.
- Fill each cup until almost full.
- Sprinkle tops with a generous pinch of cinnamon-sugar before baking (this really makes them pretty!)
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, then cool on rack.
- Store covered. They also freeze beautifully.

    Nice to see you posting once again. I’d modify the recipe with whole wheat flour with extra bran to help scrape some of the intestinal barnacles. A necessary evil as I age.

    I *love* the pumpkin mfnfius! *sigh* Now that I know they freeze well, I will have to fill my suitcase with them when I come home from my visit. Oh, and a box of Devil Dogs, too, which I also love and *cannot* find out here in the uncivilized lands of the mid-west. *double sigh*

Got something to say?
