Yummy Pumpkin Muffins

I love pumpkin muffins and have tried a few recipes over the years … but i have a new fave, so i thought i would share it with you. This fall i have made this recipe 3 times, each time making it slightly differently but each time they have been yummy. The last time i made, it was my fave – i swapped the oil for applesauce and a 1/4 cup of melted butter. Super moist result. By no means am i a ‘baker’ but i do enjoy homemade treats here and there, plus the kids love helping. The cinnamon/sugar sprinkle on the top is probably my fave part – it added a little bit of excitement to the top!

{recipe is from Smitten Kitchen}

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin (from a 15 ounce can)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pumpkin-pie spice
1 1/4 cups plus 1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Put oven in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F. Put liners in muffin cups.

Whisk together pumpkin, oil, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, 1 1/4 cups sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl until smooth, then whisk in flour mixture until just combined.

Stir together cinnamon and remaining 1 tablespoon sugar in another bowl.

Divide batter among muffin cups (each should be about three-fourths full), then sprinkle tops with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake until puffed and golden brown and wooden pick or skewer inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.

Cool in pan on a rack five minutes, then transfer muffins from pan to rack and cool to warm or room temperature.

    Thanks for sharing. I too love pumpkin muffins and plan to give these a try. Always like a good recommendation. I also love your layered templates and buy several each month, plan to collect them all. Since I’m not the most creative person, I find these make my scrapbooking a breeze!
