Pumpkin Muffins Ingredients

To make this easy muffin recipe, you will need the following ingredients (go to the recipe below for exact quantities and instructions):

  • Sugar: I used a combination of brown sugar and granulated sugar. I liked the slight caramel flavor that the brown sugar adds to these muffins. Plus, it complements the pumpkin flavoring well.
  • Vegetable oil
  • Eggs
  • Pumpkin puree: Make sure to use pumpkin puree in this recipe which consists of 100% pumpkin. I do not recommend using pumpkin pie filling because it is already presweetened and has spices added.
  • All-purpose flour
  • Leavening agents: I used both baking powder and baking soda to give these muffins a good rise.
  • Salt
  • Spices: I used a combination of cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg to achieve a well-rounded spice flavor.

Kitchen Tools Needed

You will need a muffin tin and cupcake liners for this pumpkin muffin recipe.

How to Easily Make Muffins

Making muffins with pumpkin for fall is so easy. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Make muffin batter. Whisk together sugar, brown sugar, oil, and eggs. Add in pumpkin and water and stir. Pour in flour, baking powder, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg over the wet ingredients and mix.
  3. Prepare muffin tin. Line muffin tin with cupcake liners and fill the cups 2/3 of the way full (I used an ice cream scoop for this step).
  4. Bake the muffins. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean and the muffins spring back when gently pressed.
  5. Cool the muffins. Take muffins out of tins and let cool completely on a cooling rack.
