Muffins are one of the best on-the-go foods!  Make a batch of these up the night before your show so you can munch on one as you travel and in between your show classes.  I adore anything pumpkin and what’s better than pumpkin muffins?

The Best Pumpkin Muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup oil

Optional Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon sugar (1/2 cup sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon)

 

Directions

Oven preheat: 400

Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl: flour, baking powder, salt, spices

Combine wet ingredients in a small bowl: Pumpkin, oil, sugar, milk

You can stop the recipe here and refrigerate the wet ingredients until morning, or keep going.

Stir wet ingredients into dry, stir until just combined. Spray regular muffin tin with non-stick spray. Using a large ice cream scoop, scoop the batter generously into the tins (should be about 2/3 full.)  Sprinkle tops of muffins with chopped pecans (if using.) Bake in a 400 degree oven for 18-20 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack.

You can serve the muffins at this point, or dip the top of each warm muffin into the melted butter and then into the cinnamon sugar for a delicious topping.

Enjoy!
