Some mornings, I wake up without a clue what to make the family for breakfast. The only thing I know - it won't be cold cereal. It also won't be pancakes this morning because we are out of syrup. So, I got the idea to make pumpkin muffins. Believe it or not, I didn't have a recipe in my every day cook books. I decided to look in my Geels Gastronomy Cookbook (my hubby's family cookbook). There it was - a recipe for pumpkin muffins.
Let me tell you this - DELICIOUS!
So, I thought I would share.
1 1/3 cups flour (I used fresh ground soft white wheat)
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup raisins (I omitted this because my kids don't really eat them.)
1 beaten egg
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup milk
Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in butter. Add raisins if desired. Combine egg with pumpkin and milk. Then add to dry mixture. Mix only until combined. Fill greased muffin pans 3/4 full. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.
Like I mentioned these were wonderful! They were very moist as well. I will definitely be making these again.
