• Pumpkin Muffins

    • email print
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
    1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not "pumpkin-pie filling")
    1/3 cup oil
    2 large eggs
    2 teaspoons pumpkin-pie spice
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup raisins (optional)
    Chopped nuts, such as hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds or pecans, for garnish
    2 tablespoons Demerara sugar (or other coarse sugar), for garnish
    Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 12-muffin pan with paper liners and set aside.
    In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients, except the chopped nuts and coarse sugar. Stir well to incorporate, making sure there are no large lumps. If batter seems dry, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup water.
    Fill muffin liners three-quarters full. Top each muffin with some nuts and coarse sugar. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
    Makes 12 muffins.
