Pumpkin Muffins – All Sizes!

I love to make pumpkin bread. This recipe is my absolute favorite. Lately I’ve used my same recipe to make muffins instead of loaves. This recipe makes either:
12 JUMBO size muffins, OR
24 REGULAR size muffins, OR
48 MINI size muffins
!
The recipe and baking time adjustments are below:

DRY INGREDIENTS:
3 cups White Lily all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups white sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
2 tsp. baking soda (make sure it’s fresh!)
1 ½ teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

WET INGREDIENTS:
1 cup vegetable oil
1 15 oz can pure pumpkin (not pie filling)
2/3 cup water

LET’S MAKE MUFFINS!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray the muffin tins with Baker’s Joy or use paper liners. My favorite liners are the brown paper parchment fancy bakery style holders. (See the picture above.) I found these on Amazon and also saw some at Home Goods recently.

1. In a large bowl, whisk all DRY ingredients together, breaking up clumps of brown sugar.
2.  Add the WET ingredients and mix well with a spatula.
3.  Divide into muffin tins – approximations as follows:
Makes 12 JUMBO muffins – use 1/2 cup of batter per muffin
Makes 24 Regular size muffins – use 1/4 cup of batter per muffin
Makes 48 Mini Muffins – 1 big Tablespoon of batter per muffin

Bake Jumbo Muffins 35-38 mins; Regular muffins 30-35 mins; mini muffins just 12-15 mins. All ovens are different, so be sure to test for doneness. Don’t overbake. They will continue to bake a bit when you remove them from the oven.
4. If not using paper liners, cool 5-10 minutes in the pans then invert and cool completely.

This recipe also makes 2 standard size loaf pans of pumpkin bread. I have the recipe with a fabulous swirl of cream cheese on top on my blog also. You can find it by searching “Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bread.”

Happy Fall Y’all!
