Fancy Breakfast Friday: Pumpkin Muffins


I’ve made this recipe for pumpkin muffins or bread 3 times now.  I love it because it uses a whole can of pumpkin so I don’t need to plan a use for two portions of a pumpkin can.  (Although I did learn I can make pumpkin cake and pumpkin donut holes at the same time out of one can.  And since I made pumpkin cake for Thanksgiving, I assume I will be making pumpkin donut holes at some point this weekend.)

But the recipe is self contained.  It’s also written to be a one bowl recipe which awesome.  It makes a spectacular loaf of bread, but it also can make 18 muffins.  Since we get way fewer than 18 servings out of the bread, I have been going the muffin route.  However, the bread is also worth making because the cinnamon and sugar on the top makes an amazing crust. I haven’t been able to replicate that with the muffins.

Everyone loves this, although Luke keeps suggesting that I add chocolate chips.  It seems perfect as is, and I already have a chocolate chip pumpkin muffin recipe, I just prefer this new one right now.

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
