Author Notes

My mother has never been one to strictly follow a recipe. I've always had better results sticking strictly to the book However, the older I grow, the more I become like her my mother, developing those same experienced instincts.. Add a little of this and a little of that and it makes something marvelous! That, my friends, is how the Maple Pumpkin Muffins came to be.

What You'll Need
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups Pumpkin puree (however, cans come in 15 oz, which really works just as well)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (I used olive.)
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (nonfat because that's what was in the fridge)
  • 2 teaspoons maple extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  1. Preheat over to 350 F and grease two dozen muffin tins (or line with muffin liners for easy cleanup. Who doesn't love easy cleanup?)
  2. Beat eggs, sugar, oil, Greek yogurt, maple extract, and pumpkin in a large bowl until smooth. Use a hand-mixer or go all pioneer and use a little elbow grease, but get that baby smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger.
  4. Mixing at a low speed, combine the flour mixture with the wet ingredients (being careful now to puff flour everywhere of course) until just smooth. Careful not to over-mix!
  5. Fill those 24 muffin tins and pop them in your preheated oven where they will bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out lean.
  6. Cool just for a bit, 5-10 minutes, until you can't wait any longer and they won't burn your fingers. Then eat, because what's better than a hot muffin, right?

The recipe is called Maple Pumpkin Muffins, I didn't see any maple.

Thank you for telling me, I had to write up the recipe twice and must have forgotten it the second time! But I've added it in!
