Easy Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

My easy pumpkin muffin recipe is traditionally a fall recipe, but there is no reason you can’t enjoy these pumpkin muffins year round. This version is topped with coarse sugar for a decorative touch, but they are just as wonderful plain or with a cream cheese frosting.

The kids love helping me bake these AND eat them! They are always a hit with friends and family as well.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line muffin pan with 12 regular-sized cupcake liners.

Combine sugar, oil, water, eggs, and pumpkin in a large mixing bowl and beat on low for 1 minute. Do not over mix.

Add flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger to a small bowl and stir to combine. Add dry mixture to pumpkin batter and beat on low just until all ingredients are moist.

Fill cupcake liners with batter until they are ¾ full. Bake for 12-15 minutes, then remove from oven and sprinkle each muffin with coarse decorating sugar and return to oven to finish baking another 13-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (Total cooking time should be 25-30 minutes).

Remove from oven and cool 5-10 minutes before moving muffins to wire baking rack to cool completely.
