Autumn Pumpkin Muffins

"These muffins freeze really well, especially when you decide to throw a last minute coffee. Just thaw them out overnight and pop them in the microwave or in a real low oven for a few minutes for a just baked aroma throughout the house! Enjoy!"

    These were very moist and delicious. I changed a couple of things though. I used only two cups of sugar. One cup brown sugar and one cup of white sugar.They were still very sweet. And I only used 1/4 cup of oil and added 3/4 cup of apple sauce. I got 24 muffins. Thank you for posting!

    Fabulous muffins! They are wonderful on their own, but adding the glaze makes them extra special. I subbed white whole-wheat flour for half the all-purpose, and brown sugar for 1 cup of the granulated (I just love brown sugar in pumpkin breads and muffins). I skipped the optional raisins, 'cause they just aren't even an option with me. :) I did have to add quite a bit more orange juice to thin the glaze enough to pour. I ended up with 24 muffins, enough for us to eat a few, share a few with neighbors and friends, and still have some left for the freezer. They are a little sweet for the average weekday breakfast around here (although the sugar could easily be cut back), but perfect for a treat or special occasion. This is really a great recipe--thanks for posting it!
