Simple Pumpkin Muffins

I was in the mood for something with pumpkin in it today, so I searched for a pumpkin recipe.  I adapted this recipe from here  These are so yummy and my kids loved them!
Here is my recipe:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

3/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cups whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin (from a 15 ounce can)

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon pumpkin-pie spice

1 teaspoon cinnamon plus some for tops

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2-3 Tablespoons granulated sugar for tops

Butter for tops

Line muffin tin with baking cups.  Using a mixer or by hand, mix together pumpkin, eggs, brown sugar, oil, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Mix until smooth.  Then gradually add the flour and mix just until combined.  The mixture will be thick!  Put mixture in muffin tins, about 3/4 full.  Makes 12 large muffins.  Cook 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.

While muffins are baking, put 2-3 Tbsp. granulated sugar on a small plate and sprinkle with cinnamon.  When the muffins are done and still hot (be careful!), rub the tops of the muffins in butter and sprinkle with the sugar/cinnamon mixture.  Put on a wire rack to cool.  Enjoy!

They look like mini mountains!

See the dark brown spot at the botton right?  It is brown sugar that didn't get mixed it, but it sure is yummy!

Let me know if you use this recipe and if you make any changes.  I love trying/perfecting new baking recipes!
