Pumpkin Muffins with Spiced Sugar

Pumpkin Muffins with Spiced Sugar

This recipe makes 6 large muffins or 12 small muffins. Don’t fret if you don’t have a smaller muffin pan — if you make muffins half the size, you can eat twice as many for the same amount of calories! However, half the size does not equal half the time — if you are making bigger muffins you’ll bake them for about 25-30 minutes, but smaller muffins will be closer to 20-25 minutes. Set a timer, but the best way to tell your muffins are done is by using the tried and true “toothpick method” — just stick a toothpick in the middle of the highest part of a muffin. If you can pull it out with no visible wet batter or overly sticky crumbs, it’s done.



1½ C cake flour

½ tsp baking powder

1 C cooked pumpkin

¾ C Nashville Spice Company Demerara Sugar

½ C vegetable oil

2 large eggs

1 Tbs Nashville Spice Company Pumpkin Pie Spice

½ tsp baking soda

1 Tbs Sugar, for sugar mixture

1 tsp Nashville Spice Company Pumpkin Pie Spice, for sugar mixture



Preheat oven to 350°F.

Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl.

In a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, eggs, oil, sugar, salt, Nashville Spice Company Pumpkin Pie Spice, and baking soda together; mix well, but don’t over stir.

Grease muffin pan. Divide batter between cups. Sprinkle sugar mixture evenly over tops.

Bake 12 small muffins for 20-25 minutes, or 6 large muffins for 25-30 minutes. Check with a toothpick for doneness.

Remove from oven, place pan on cooling rack. Serve when cooled.
