THE VERY BEST PUMPKIN MUFFINS, I PROMISE!
The Recipe makes 24 regular size muffins or 12 jumbo ones. I sometime cut this recipe in half.
3 Cups Sugar
1 Cup oil
1 Small can of Pumpkin (non spiced) raw
11/2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
11/4 Teaspoons Nutmeg
2 Teaspoons Salt
31/4 Cups Flour
1 Cup Water
3 Teaspoons Baking Soda
Mix wet ingredients then slowly mix in dry ingredients careful not to over mix. Fill lined muffin tins or well greased tins about 3/4 way full bake about 25-30 minutes depending on your oven. To test doneness just slightly tap the top of the muffin and it should spring back. For the top I just make a quick Cream cheese glaze
11/2 cup confectioners sugar
about 3 tablespoons soft butter
2 oz. of cream cheese
a drop or two of 1/2 & 1/2
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Mix all together , the consistency should be slightly pastey but you can always add more 1/2 & 1/2 if needed
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes.
