Mmmm... These muffins are not too sweet and wonderfully moist. The directions were simple and spot on. I was worried that perhaps the 1 Tablespoon of baking powder might be a typo, but since this recipe already had a great review on it, I held true and it worked great! The batter is very airy and I feel that this is what takes the pumpkin to a very delicate texture. We loved the brown sugar topping, it was great! I used Sunmaid fruit bits which has cranberries in and next time I will add some chopped pecans too. I also used regular sized tins and got 12 muffins in 18 minutes. Thanks for sharing this keeper recipe. :)
I thought the 1 T baking powder was a typo, and made these with 1 t instead. IT IS NOT A TYPO! My muffins have great flavor, but lousy texture. Will make these again--with the full amount of baking powder--so that I can share the result with friends!
will have to try again. i was underwhelmed, esp. after the previous reviews. however, perhaps it was something i did, so i will maybe give it another shot soon.
