Pueblo Pumpkin Muffins

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Roxygirl in Colorado

My quest for a good pumpkin led me to a bed and breakfast in NM, called "Inn at the Paseo." These bake up tall and with a golden orange color with a tender inside.

Oh wow! These were perfect with a nice, light crumb. Used half white whole wheat flour and otherwise followed the directions. Added pecans to half of them (so the one year old could eat some). I left out the raisins as a personal preference I did bake at 400 for 10 minutes, then 350 for 10 minutes and it was perfect. I will mark these to make again!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix together oil, sugar, eggs, pumpkin, and buttermilk, and extract.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, and beat until batter is smooth.
  4. Stir in walnuts and raisins.
  5. Spoon into greased muffin tins full (I fill them high, so it made 9 ample ones) and bake 10 minutes, reducing the oven to 350 and bake until toothpick comes out clean, about 15 additional minutes.
