This is another pumpkin recipe from pumpkinnook.com. This makes two dozen muffins, which is more than enough for people who like baked goods. You can use canned pumpkin if fresh pumpkin is not available.

Although I'd normally use canned pumpkin in a recipe like this, I did manage to salvage a cup of the fresh stuff from another pumpkin recipe I was making (salvaged it before my son made off with the rest of the large pumpkin I had, for dog food, he said)! Anyway, these muffing came together very easily & were wonderfully delicious! Most of 'em were shared with a coffee-&-snack group we attend almost every week, but the recipe is a keeper, & I'll be making 'em again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
