Pumpkin Muffins


Pumpkin is one of those ingredients that tastes good in pretty much any kind of baked good it’s in.
Pumpkin tastes amazing in cookies, breads, cupcakes, & biscotti, but I think my favorite baked good to add pumpkin to is muffins! The pumpkin helps keep the muffins super moist, and gives it an amazing flavour.
This is a super simple recipe for delicious, moist, perfectly-spiced pumpkin muffins. (No mixer is required!)
It’s a perfect, simple recipe to make if you have some leftover pumpkin.




Pumpkin Muffins

(yield: 12-14 cupcakes)
1 + 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup pure pumpkin
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


ย Spray 2 muffin pans with non-stick cooking spray, or line with cupcake liners & set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg together until combined; set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk the brown sugar & eggs together. Add in the pumpkin, oil, milk, and vanilla and mix until combined. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until ingredients are just combined – don’t overmix!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Scoop batter and divide evenly into 14 muffin cups. Bake for 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Happy Baking!

      • We definitely donโ€™t have canned pumpkin on the normal supermarket shelves. I imagined youโ€™d all use fresh! Definitely never had pumpkin pie, but we do get pumpkins around Halloween now (Iโ€™m not sure for how long theyโ€™re in the shops as I donโ€™t think we have them normally) but when I was younger I once calved a Swede lantern to join in! I must put pumpkin pie on my list of things to cook, but next year now I guess.

  1. You know how many recipes I have from you guys? Alot, and the worst part is that my mother expects me to cook some of them, so Iยดll be spending Christmas(if everything goes not all that bad)in the kitchen. So thank you very much!

      • Hershey Candy Cane Kiss cookies(she loves candy, donยดt ask me why, youยดre the girls here), Raspberry Thumbprint cookies and last but not least….Gingerbread cookies(she likes the little figures now) And she expects me to make them the same as sheยดs seen in the pictures…what the mom! Iยดm not that bad of a cook but thatยดs a bit of a stretch. So thankยดs again, Iยดm becoming a girly man.

  2. These look lovely! Pumpkin is a great ingredient – I know I went crazy with it earlier this year as we had lots in the garden, but I didn’t make muffins … I missed a trick there ๐Ÿ˜‰
