Pumpkin Muffins

  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon soda

With the abundance of pumpkins around our place, we find lots of ways to use them. I put together this recipe for pumpkin muffins using cornmeal. Although they contain quite a bit of brown sugar, they are not too sweet to carry a load of jam or apple butter, or to eat with your turkey and dressing on Thanksgiving. This recipe makes 12 muffins.
  1. Grease tins, pre-heat oven to 375o.

  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

  3. Mix the wet ingredients in another bowl.

  4. Combine the two bowls, stir until everything is wet; lumpy is OK.

  5. Fill tins and bake about 25 minutes.
