About: i like food

today i'm going to show you all the steps and how to make pumpkin muffins

Step 1: The Ingredients

  • 1 small sugar/pie pumpkin (2 cups purée are needed for this recipe)
  • 3 cups flour2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups sugar (1 1/4 cups for the sweet intolerant people in your family)

  • 2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2/3 cup butter/oil/shortening

  • 3 eggs

  • Vanilla Extract

  • {2 tsp of each ground cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg

  • 1 tsp ground allspice

  • {OR 2 tbs "pumpkin pie spices"}

Step 2: Prep

Cut pumpkin in half, remove seeds and strings.Place on baking sheet, cut side down.Cover with foil and put a layer of foil on the tray(BEWARE: The pumpkin will leak juices that will burn and make for a messy clean up job afterwards)and bake for 90 minutes.

Step 3: Preparing the Batter

Mix together all dry ingredients and mix together all wet ingredients in separate bowls.For the wet ingredients you can mix them all together first(but if you are using butter instead of oil then don't add that yet)and then add the pumpkin after.

Step 4: The Pumpkin Is Ready

Get the pumpkin out of the oven,scoop out the pulp(try not to include any burnt pieces)and purée in the blender.Take out 2 cups and set aside.(You can eat the rest of the pumpkin like mashed potatoes with your Thanksgiving dinner,it is very good and is a nice change from the usual.)

Step 5: Combining the Wet and Dry Ingredients

Pour the (almost room temp) butter that you melted and (same temp) pumpkin purée into the wet ingredients and mix well.Next, pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well until smooth.

Step 6: Almost Ready

Grease the muffin pans (this made me 10 muffins and 12 mini muffins)with more butter (not too much)and then add in the batter mixture.Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 7: Finished

Take your muffins out of the oven and check with a toothpick(if batter sticks then they are not done) to see if they are done,if not put them back in the oven.If they are finished take them out of the trays and put them to the side cool off
