Kitsnacks: Pumpkin Muffins  

I made a batch of absolutely gorgeous pumpkin muffins this morning. Light, fluffy, tender, just the right amount of sweetness.

The dog ate half of them.


Baloo’s Favourite Pumpkin Muffins:
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
4 eggs
1 cup melted butter
2/3 cup water
2 cups white sugar
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Whisk wet ingredients together in a large bowl. Whisk dry ingredients together in another bowl. Whisk dry ingredients into wet ingredients until barely mixed. Scoop into buttered, floured muffin tins with a large spoon, not quite filling the tins to the rim. Sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar on top if you think of it. Bake at 375°F/180°C for 18-22 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

Makes about 30 muffins. Would also make a very nice loaf, I expect, but I didn’t do that.

For shame, doggy. But those muffins *do* look awfully tempting...

Hmm. Soda, not powder?

(ed.) I ask because I'm tempted to make these right now but I've had Problems with banana bread using just soda.

Soda. This isn't nearly as dense as banana bread and they rose beautifully. However, if you wish to use powder, I can't imagine it would lead them badly astray. :)
