Yummy Pumpkin Muffins

Hope everyone is having a great week! I wanted to share a recipe I made last night. This is a light pumpkin muffin that you could make into a cupcake by adding your favorite cream cheese frosting. Let me know what you think!

1½ cups of self rising flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ginger
½ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. allspice
1½ cups of sugar
3/4 cup pumpkin (I use Libby's solid pumpkin in a can)
2 eggs
½ cup of oil
¼ cup of dark rum or egg nog (I didn't have either of these so I used buttermilk)
¼ cup of maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350 and line your muffin tin. Mix dry ingredients together except for sugar. In a separate bowl mix sugar, pumpkin, and eggs until smooth. Don't skip this step and just dump everything in and mix or you will have a lumpy mess. Mix in oil, rum (eggnog or buttermilk) and maple syrup. Slowly add the dry flour mixture. Don't overmix!! Spoon into your muffin cups and bake for about 20 minutes.  I made 24 mini muffins and 12 regular size muffins out of this recipe.

Gma ate 4 regular size this morning!!
