Pumpkin Muffins

My favorite season has always been fall, but living in Florida the fall season never comes. We have about three more months of hot weather. I sure miss the fall season so much and I love pumpkin, so I wanted to share with you this yummy recipe for pumpkin muffins. Just the aroma made it seem like fall to me. Yummy!

1 1/2 cup of unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
1 cup of sugar
1 1/4 cup of solid pack pumpkin
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
2 large eggs

1/2 teaspoon of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
mix together and sprinkle on top of each muffin before baking.

Preheat oven to 350F and place liners in muffin cups.

In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt, set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together pumpkin, vegetable oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla then add flour mixture to the pumpkin. Whisk all the ingredients till combine. Using a ice cream scoop, scoop mixture into the muffin cups. Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon topping on each muffin, then bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Insert wooden toothpick to make sure it comes out clean. Set aside for 5 minutes and remove from muffin pan and place on cooling rack.

Give these a try and let me know what you think. I love comments so leave a message.
