Got Pumpkin?

PumpkinsPumpkin Muffins

Makes 1 dozen muffins

1 C sugar
1/4 C oil
1/4 C melted butter
2 eggs
1 C pumpkin, cooked and mashed
1 C flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp each cloves & nutmeg
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 C chopped nuts (opt.)

Preheat oven to 450°. Grease muffin tin, or line it with paper baking cups.

In a medium bowl, beat sugar, oil and butter. Add eggs and beat until light and fluffy. Mix in pumpkin.

In a separate bowl, mix together remaining ingredients. Add to sugar mixture and stir just until mixed.

Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full, then bake for 20 minutes.

*Note: you can double this recipe to make three loaves of pumpkin bread, instead of muffins. Grease the loaf pans well, and bake for 60 minutes at 325°, or until a toothpick poked into the center comes out clean.

    You should. They’d make a nice breakfast before classes, or a nice, warm snack afterward! Let me know how they turn out for you.

    My pumpkin was moldy. 😦 Do you think this would work with applesauce though?

    I made my usual muffin recipie and added the spices from this recipe. It was really good, but not pumpkin muffin good.

      Poor Sarah. I guess we’ll just have to make pumpkin muffins when you’re home for Christmas.

    Too bad about your pumpkin. 😦 I’ve used half applesauce and half pumpkin in this recipe before, and I think using all applesauce should work fine. Applesauce isn’t usually as thick as pumpkin, so you might want to add just a little more flour.
