Family Life :: I ♥ Pumpkin - Pumpkin Muffins







Pumpkin Muffins


1½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup canned or fresh cooked + pureed pumpkin

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon pumpkin-pie spice

1¼ cups plus 1 tablespoon sugar

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

(add raisins for fun! i think they taste better that way :)


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

Whisk together pumpkin, oil, eggs, pumpkin-pie spice, 1¼ 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 5 minutes, then transfer muffins from pan to rack and cool to warm or room temperature.
