Pumpkin and spice and everything nice…. Or something like that
Wanna make pretty, tall bakery style muffins? I’ll show you how and it’s really quite easy.
Here’s the Stuff
See, no magic, just simple ingredients. You’ll notice that I’m using just plain pumpkin, the label should say 100% pure pumpkin, don’t make the mistake of buying that pumpkin pie mix, it doesn’t work the same in this recipe.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Now get those dry ingredients combined, yeah, yeah I know, you already know what this looks like, but bear with me.
Now get those wet ingredients together in a larger bowl, give ’em a good stir.
Now add the dry to the wet all at once. Looks familiar doesn’t it, kinda like a quick bread? That’s pretty much what we are making here.
I could have melted my butter more, but it’s gonna be alright, trust me, would I steer you wrong?
There, now give it a good stir, just until combined, we want those little lumps, just stir a little and step away from the bowl!
There, the batter is all done and ready for the pan.
Spray your muffin/cupcake pan with some pan spray. Fill each cup all the way to the top for a pretty, tall muffin, this will get ya 9 muffins. If you want to fill them 3/4 full you’ll get a shorter muffin and you should get about 12 from this recipe, the choice is yours. Isn’t it great to have choices?
Now we are going to make them even better. Lets make some streusel.
In a small bowl combine all the ingredients, flour, sugar, butter and cinnamon.
Now just mush it with a fork
and keep mushin’ until it looks like coarse sand. It’s OK if there are a few bits of butter left
Now sprinkle it evenly over the batter in the pan
Oooohhh these gonna be good!
Now bake those bad boys in that preheated oven for 18-24 minutes or until they test done.
and look what we made here. Muffins to be proud of, you’ll be the envy of the neighborhood…
