Yield: Makes 15 to 16 Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin butter, about 12 ounces
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 4 tablespoons milk or half-and-half
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, divided
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preparation:

Grease and flour muffin pans or line with muffin/cupcake papers. Heat oven to 325°.

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the cinnamon.

In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin butter, canola oil, milk or half-and-half, and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients, stirring until well blended. Stir in 3/4 cup of the chopped pecans. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup of pecans with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Sprinkle a little over each muffin. Bake for about 30 minutes, until muffins spring back when lightly touched with a finger.

Makes about 15 to 18 muffins.
