My friend Therese mentioned that her daughter loves these pumpkin muffins, and was happy to oblige when I asked for the recipe! I made mini-muffins today for play group and oh boy, were they tasty. I had to force myself to stop eating them all before Anna's friends got here today. And the rest are firmly in the freezer to avoid snacking, but I bet they will make a tasty breakfast soon!
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Beat the eggs well, and then add the other wet ingredients and mix well.
In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients gradually and mix until well blended.
Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes for full size muffins.
Bake at 325 for 20 minutes for mini muffins.
Kathryn, what would you do to make this recipe a bit healthier? I was cringing at the amount of sugar that goes in these tasty little things but I did console myself that a mini muffin wouldn't kill a diet! Tell me your tricks please, for this recipe.
