Pumpkin Muffins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by JennyMidget

Slightly unusual sweet muffin recipe - but very tasty! Substitute regular baking powder and salted butter if you prefer. Best type of pumpkin for this is butternut, but the first time I tried it with some leftover from a massive Queensland Blue my dad grew for me, it was still pretty good.

These muffins tasted more molasses (treacle) than pumpkin. So for me it's more molasses muffins. They were good but were not moist like I wanted. I got only 11 muffins. Thanks Jenny :) Made for PRMR tag game
