These pumpkin muffins are made with spices and chopped pecans. These are good with cream cheese spread or apple jelly.


  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed pumpkin, fresh cooked or canned
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Add pumpkin and beat well. Combine 1 3/4 cups flour, baking powder, salt and spices; mix well. Add flour mixture to butter and sugar mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat well after each addition. Dredge pecans in remaining 1/4 cup of flour; fold into batter. Spoon batter into greased muffin cups, filling 2/3 full. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until golden. Makes about 18 muffins.

light and sweet, but lacking, Member hotcakes1979

I thought they had just the right amount of sweetness and they were light in texture. However, I think they could use an extra half cup of chopped pecans. Also an extra quarter teaspoon of salt (if using unsalted butter) and an extra quarter teaspoon of ground nutmeg would help.
