It’s my favorite time of year again. I love the cool, crisp air and leaves changing colors. And, of course, apple picking and pumpkin patches! To get fully in the Autumn mood, try my Pumpkin Muffins below. Full of warming spices and delicious pumpkin, these goodies can’t be beat.
Yield: makes about 24 muffins or 2 loaves of pumpkin bread
1 cup maple sugar
1 cup vegetable/ canola oil
1 can Pumpkin
in a separate bowl sift/ combine dry ingredients:
3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add dry ingredients to wet in 2-3 parts; when blended pour into muffin tin/ baking pans. If making bread loaves, works best to grease pan liberally with butter and fill pan very shallowly.
2. Bake for 28-30 minutes (30-40 minutes for loaves), depending on how hot your oven is and large muffins are, check with a fork to make sure it comes out clean.
