The Easiest Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

pumpkin muffins One of my favourite parts of Fall is pumpkin everything. Pumpkin candles, pumpkin spice lattes (yes, I’m basic), pumpkin picking and pumpkin baked goods! As soon as September rolls around in the US, pumpkin mania sets in and I am so happy that the pumpkin trend has made its way across the pond!

Every year, I bake pumpkin bread with Libby’s pumpkin pureé and I thought I’d share a super easy recipe to make Libby’s pumpkin muffins. Pumpkin pureé used to be really hard to find in the UK but last year, I was thrilled when I came across Libby’s in Waitrose and stocked up! Now, you can get a few different brands of pumpkin puree in Tesco and some big Sainsbury’s. If you are from the US, and a Libby’s devotee, you can buy cans of it here and here. 

These easy-to-make Libby’s Pumpkin Muffins are perfect to bring to work or to have at home to snack on and they’ll make your whole house smell divine. To make these heavenly pumpkin muffins, you’ll need:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 can (15 ounces) Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water or orange juice

Step 1: Pre-heat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius

Step 2: Combine 3 cups of flour, 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice (this is very difficult to find in the UK so you can sub in ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon instead), 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoons of baking soda. Beat until blended and set aside.

Step 4: Put muffin liners in the muffin tin

Step 5: Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and stir until the batter is all combined.

Depending on the size of your muffin tin, you can get up to 35 regular sized muffins out of this mixture or 72 mini muffins. If you have a jumbo muffin tin – you can get about 12-15 muffins.

Leave in the oven for about 20 minutes and stick with a toothpick to see if they are done. Bring them out of the oven and leave to cool down before enjoying them warm with melted butter – there’s nothing more delicious.
