Pumpkin Muffins

This recipe is absolutely wonderful. I am so thrilled that I found this recipe :)

Here is the recipe:

Pumpkin Muffins

Adapted From the American Club, in Kohler, Wisconsin via Gourmet Magazine

1 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin pie

1/3 cup vegetable oil *I used Canola oil*

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon pumpkin-pie spice *I'll post this as well*

1 1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon sugar

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350 Degree's F. Put liners in muffin cups. *I didn't use liners I used Pam spray in the pan and worked well*

In a separate bowl mix together flour and baking powder.

Whisk together in another mixing bowl pumpkin, oil, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, 1 1/4 cup sugar, baking soda and salt. Whisk in Flour mixture until just combined.

Stir together cinnamon and remaining 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, toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 to 30 minutes depending on your oven.

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

Makes 1 dozen muffins

Pumpkin Pie Spice

In a small bowl or cup measure:

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger

1/8 teaspoon of ground allspice or ground cloves

1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

Stir to blend. Makes 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice

These muffins were absolutely delicious! I must admit to not following the recipe slavishly, though!
I used frozen pumpkin (thawed) rather than tinned as we had some left over from buying pumpkins in October, and olive oil rather than Canola. I wasn't sure what "all-purpose flour" was, so I used self-raising flour and omitted the baking soda. Because I'm a fan of all-in-one methods, I put everything except the topping into my trusty Kenwood Chef bowl and beat it all together for a few minutes. I followed all the rest of the instructions!!
The results were fantastic, and I can thoroughly recommend the muffins!
