  • 2½ c. sugar
  • 2/3 c. vegetable oil
  • 2/3 c. water
  • 4 large eggs
  • 15-oz. can pure pumpkin
  • 3½ c. all-purpose flour

Pumpkin Spice Muffin Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F and line a muffin pan with 12 regular-sized cupcake liners. Set aside.

Combine sugar, oil, water, eggs, and pumpkin puree in a large mixing bowl and beat on low for 1 minute. (You can also beat by hand, if preferred). Do not over mix.

Add flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger to a small bowl and stir to combine. Add dry mixture to pumpkin batter and beat on low (or stir by hand) just until all ingredients are blended into the batter. Do not over mix.
