Meals Made Easy: Pumpkin Muffins

30 Mar

Click here for materials you will need.

This is a very old recipe from Martha Stewart and I can’t find the link on-line. In the video we make 1/2 of the actual recipe. The full recipe makes nine full loaves of bread.

Here is the recipe cut in half.

 

1 1/8 cups butter, softened

1/4 + 1/2 Tbsp molassas

3 cups sugar

6 eggs

1 cup orange juice or water

3 cups pumpkin puree

3/4 tsp baking powder

1 Tbsp baking soda

3/4 Tbsp salt

1/2 Tbsp cinnamon

1/2 Tbsp ground cloves

1 1/2 cups raisins (optional)

In a very large bowl, cram butter, molasses and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat until light and lemon colored. Add orange juice or water and pumpkin. Mix well. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add to pumpkin mixture, 1 cup at a time, mixing well. Stir in raisins if using them. Spoon mixture into buttered muffin tins and bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.
