Last week, when we were out of bread and cereal and anything else for breakfast, I whipped up a batch of these muffins. I mixed them up after dinner and we warmed them in the microwave the next morning. Even my pickiest child loved them. Of course, I didn’t tell him they were pumpkin or he would have refused to even try them. He didn’t find out they had pumpkin in them until he was on his third muffin. I love pullin’ one over on my kids!
The recipe is adapted from Country Living Country Mornings cookbook.
Mix 1 1/2 cups flour, 6 TBS sugar, 1 TBS baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, melt 1/2 stick of butter in the microwave. Stir in 1 cup pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup milk, 1 egg.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just moistened. You can also add raisins, but my kids would revolt, so ours are plain. Divide the batter into greased muffin pans and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Slather with butter and wash down with hot coffee, tea or milk. Savor fall!

Those look great.
Where did you buy the pumpkin puree?
Maddy, pumpkin puree can be found near the pie fillings in the grocery. It’s usually on the bottom shelf or near the bottom. I don’t know why that is though. I hope you find it!
It is just canned pumpkin. You make pumpkin pies from scratch with it. Try recipe on can. Much better than the canned mix! Not hard.
It id also good fiber to mix in canned cat or dog foid if necessary to add fiber. This is per my vet. My cat did not like it. 🙂
These were so good! One of my 3 yr old twins and I whipping them up this morning…. he wanted to cook for Mommy! Cute.
Yum! Two thumbs up and I feel like I am kind of eating healthy with the pumpkin in there. 🙂
Definitely going to make these today! My kids love muffins, mostly corn and choc. chip but I bet I can get these into ’em!
I am making these now! I just love your Ingredient spotlight. I looked in my cupboard and found 5 cans of pumpkin so I thought “Tiffany’s Ingredient Spotlight will have a pumpkin bread recipe for me.” 🙂 And looky here, these sound so yummy and perfect!! Thanks.
I’m out of nutmeg, could I just use pumpkin pie spice in place of the nutmeg and cinnamon? And if so….how much?
Trish, that would work fine.
Thanks! I made the pumpkin sticky rolls and they are amazing! Someone just dropped in and the house smelled great too! 🙂
I’m so glad you liked them! We were licking the platter when I made those 🙂
Oops, I’m not sure how much. Maybe the same as what the recipe calls for both spices?
Sure hope 1 Tablespoon baking powder is right- Sounds like a lot ! Just added choc chips
