Yummy Pumpkin Muffins

My family loves fall. We love the scents, the sights, all the fun activities – we love it all.  Every year we stock our candy dish full of Brach’s Autumn Mix (my oldest son picks out the regular candy corn, hubby the pumpkins, and me the indian corn) and I make all sorts of pumpkin and apple filled delights.  We stocked our candy dish yesterday and this morning I started the season off right with my favorite pumpkin muffin recipe.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin Muffins – yum!

Pumpkin Muffins

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup pumpkin (you can use canned or even pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Put liners in muffin tins or spray muffin pans with non-stick cooking spray.

Whisk flour and baking powder together, set aside.

Whisk together pumpkin, oil, eggs, cinnamon, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl until smooth.  Whisk in flour mixture until just combined.

Stir together cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl (use the bowl you used for your flour mixture to save on washing extra dishes). Set aside.

Divide batter into twelve muffin cups (approx. 3/4 full) and sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture over the muffins.  Bake until puffed and golden brown and a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean.  Approx. 25-30 minutes.

Cool in pan 5-10 minutes then transfer to rack or plate to cool.  Delicious served warm or room temperature!
