Have not tried this recipe. I'm posting it for a request for someone who needs to use up a small amount of leftover pumpkin. This recipe looks simple quick and easy and uses only 1/2 cup of pumpkin.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.

  9. Bake 20 to 25 minutes at 400º degrees.

Hey 1Steve ~~ made these this morning. Having a recipe for just 1/2 c. pumpkin is great, cause I always seem to have a bit left from various recipes. They are great! I added a dash of cloves.. but think next time I will add a bit more cinnamon. I baked them in Madellin pans, and got 15 little pumpkin 'cakes'. I dusted them with icing sugar and they looked decorative and tasted yummy. :)

I made 6 batches of these to take to school in France for Thanksgiving. They needed a bit of pumpkin pie spice, a bit more than the recipe, and were a very nice color. They stuck badly to paper muffin cups, I would only use tin cups next time. Good way to use a bit of pumpkin

These muffins are wonderful-perfect for that leftover pumpkin in your refrigerator. I replaced half of the flour with whole wheat flour and added 1/4 t. ginger, 1/4t. allspice, and 1/8t. cloves as recommended by another reviewer. This recipe only yielded 9 muffins for me.
