Pumpkin Choc Chip MuffinsSubmitted by: ERMABOM
IntroductionMakes approximately 12 muffins, 3 small loaves, or 1 large loaf Makes approximately 12 muffins, 3 small loaves, or 1 large loaf
1 3/4 cup (1 15 oz. can) pureed pumpkin/roasted butternut squash
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3-4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups chopped walnuts or chocolate chips
Combine the pumpkin, brown sugar, butter, and eggs and mix until creamy. In a separate bowl, combine all of the dry
ingredients except the nuts or chocolate chips. Mix 3 cups of the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, then add as much
of the 4th cup as necessary to achieve the proper consistency (moist, but thick enough to stand a spoon in). Add the nuts
or chocolate chips and stir in.
Pour or spoon the batter into greased muffin tins or bread pans. Bake on the center rack until a toothpick poked into the
center comes out dry. At sea level, muffins should take between 20 and 25 minutes to bake, small loaves between 25 and 30
minutes, and full sized loaves between 50 minutes and 1 hour.
Number of Servings: 24
