Easy Pumpkin Muffins Recipe
The secret to really good homemade pumpkin muffins come from the right amount of ingredients and of course, great quality pumpkin purée.
Whether canned or freshly homemade, pumpkin purée is the core element of this recipe. While store bought canned purée is so convenient, I really love making pumpkin purée at home to create pumpkin treats. It’s super easy to make and freeze well. When the pumpkin season arrives, make a big batch and store in your freezer for a month.
This pumpkin purée is combined with the other wet ingredients in the recipe. Milk, oil, pumpkin purée and eggs keep the muffins soft and moist. Make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature to make the best muffins.
Remember to mix wet and dry ingredients separately. Place all the dry ingredients including flour, sugar, baking soda and cinnamon in a bowl. With the spices, you can use either ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. To this dry mixture, add the wet mixture.
Fold in gently. And then into muffin cases placed in muffin tin. Finally, bake. As you can see, there’s no baking powder in this pumpkin muffin recipe. You will only need baking soda for well risen, moist muffins.
