"Delicious, moist, and really smooth flavor. Only made one small addition... pecans. I took them to work and they were a hit! This was a great way to use the fresh pumpkin left over from Halloween."
"I could hardly wait for these to come out of the oven. What an incredible smell, and the taste was even better. Soft, tender, spiced just right and umm, umm good. My husband and I agree that these are some of the best pumpkin muffins we have ever had. Thanks Nurse Di."
"We thought these muffins were excellent. A wonderful spiced flavor that smelled so good when baking. Very soft and tender. We ate these while they were still warm with a litte butter. A great way to start a cool, crisp fall day."
"Oh my. I used all white whole wheat flour and Smart Balance for the shortening, and I cut the sugar to 1 cup, using mostly brown sugar. Then I omitted the water and used a whole 15 oz can of pumpkin because I didn't want any leftover. I baked them for 22 minutes. These were the most beautiful and delicious muffins I've ever made or eaten."
"Excellent muffins. Great soft, moist texture. The smell coming off the kitchen had everybody running in to see what was baking. Great spiced flavor. I added a few chopped walnuts. Umm, Umm good. Thanks Nurse Di."
"As a chilly fall evening descended, these baked away in the oven, embodying the scent of autumn. They didn't taste bad, either. ;) I used half butter and half shortening. They are absolutely incredible, and I'll bet they will taste even better tomorrow. Thanks, these are fantastic!"
"Love these! Added a little extra of the spices and topped with a cream cheese frosting and sprinkled cinnamon and nutmeg on top. Thanks for sharing!"
"Amazing and very tasty! I doubled the recipe to make 24 muffins and used a whole can of pumpkin. My oven took less time than the recipe states so be careful. I used 1/2 cup melted better and 1/2 cup canola oil and it turned out perfect."
"Better than my favorite coffee shop's pumpkin muffins (and those are hard to beat)! I used vegetable oil and they came out wonderfully!"
"I doubled the recipe to use a whole 15oz can of pumpkin, and made a couple alterations - 1 cup of brown sugar in with the pumpkin and then 1 cup of white sugar with the flour (instead of 3 cups total), 3 eggs instead of 4, 1/2 cup applesauce plus 1/2 cup oil, and a little ww flour. made 24 perfectly sized muffins (not the huge ones) which baked in about 25 minutes, and they are moist, nicely sweet, and delicious! I will definitely make them again but likely with more spices, maybe raisins, or even streusel on top if I am feeling decadent. Thank you!"
"Awesome! Very moist and good. I think these taste like the pumpkin muffins at Panera Bread."
"Moist and deeeelicious, that is how I would describe these yummy muffins. We had these for breakfast and my whole family enjoyed them. I served them with scrambled egg, and bacon. What a feast. Thanks, I will be making these many more times."
"These were wonderful! I doubled the recipe and used 2 c. sugar (they were still plenty sweet). I also didn't have shortening on hand, but used canola oil in its place with great results. They were moist and rose up nice. Doubling the recipe (using the entirety of the 15oz can of pumpkin) and cutting back on the sugar yielded a very nice Bundt size pan of bread (to which I added raisins) & 12 large muffins. The flavors were wonderful. My DD ate hers with whipped cream piped on top, they were delicious. I might even try an addition of cranberries next time! Thanks for sharing, these will be a staple as we roll into fall!<br/>Update: I had some pomegranates & pumpkins to use & was inspired by recipe #197372. I knew this recipe was a winner, so I combined the 2 using this & stirred 1 c. Pomegranate seeds into the dry ingredients before stirring into the wet. My son loves both pomegranate & pumpkin, so naturally, he loved these."
"I'm adding yet another 5 star review! These muffins were moist and delicious. I did make some modifications to make them more diet-friendly. I substituted applesauce for the oil, used egg whites instead of whole eggs and used 1/2 Splenda and 1/2 sugar. I forgot to add the water but it didn't affect the recipe. I also used 1/2 wheat and 1/2 white flour and added 1/3 cup of ground flaxseed. These made 6 Texas-sized muffins. I will certainly make these again--thanks for posting!"
"The kids helped me make these! We used white whole wheat flour, substituted 3/4 cup brown sugar for 1 1/2 cups sugar, and melted butter instead of shortening. I also left out the cloves and ginger because I didn't have them. They were DELICIOUS and my four children and I have them almost gone before they are even finished cooling!"
"These were so good, and so easy! Used pumpkin pie spice (instead of the individual spices) and melted butter instead of shortening, and they turned out PERFECT! Kids loved them, will make them again repeatedly. Thanks!"
"I've been making muffins for my family on Saturdays and this is what we had last weekend. My family loved them. They were not too sweet with just the right amount of spices. I will definitely make again, especially when the pumpkins are ready. I used canned pumpkin this time, but I will make with fresh in season. Thank you for sharing with us your recipe."
"Great and easy to make muffin. Took these to the office and everyone loved them!"
"Made these today when I was having a hankering for something a bit different. I subbed melted butter for shortening, doubled the recipe and sprinkled vanilla bean sugar on top of the batter before popping them in the oven. The recipe says it makes enough batter for 14 muffins - true if you want smaller muffins, but if you want to use all of the batter, you could easily get it all into 12 muffins, they will just be slightly bigger. Next time, I might add something to these to give them a little more "oomph" - mini chocolate chips might do the trick! But they are still very yummy on their own. Enjoy :)"
"These are delicious! Moist, not too sweet....couldn't be better!"
