This pumpkin muffin recipe is, by far, my favorite fall recipe. I’ve made it 3 times so far this year. In fact, I just made a batch this morning. (I wish you could smell the delicious aroma in my kitchen!)
I’ve made this for a lot of people, and they’ve all raved about it. It’s perfect as a sweet breakfast muffin or as a dessert with ice cream and/or whip cream.
I wish I could remember where I got the recipe. It’s in my scribbled handwriting on a piece of scratch paper. I’m guessing I found it somewhere on the internet. (If the recipe is yours, please let me know so I can give proper credit!)
Anyway, here’s the recipe:
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of cloves (I’ve omitted this because I keep forgetting to buy cloves)
1 cup sugar
½ cup oil
1 cup pumpkin (the pumpkin puree in a can)
*semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and cloves. In a separate bowl, mix sugar and eggs. Add oil and mix at medium speed for 3 minutes. Add flour mixture, and then add pumpkin. Mix at medium speed until well blended. *Add in chopped walnuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips to your liking. (I added a small amount of chopped walnuts and a very generous portion of chocolate chips.) Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Makes 18 muffins.
*Note: the original recipe did not call for chopped walnuts or semi-sweet chocolate chips, but I think this is the key to the muffin!
