Cook’s Note –Pumpkin Honey Muffins
- These muffins will keep, covered at room temperature for 3 days…but I doubt they’ll last that long!
- A 4-tablespoon scoop comes in hand with this recipe. You will get exactly 12 muffins when you use leveled-off scoops.
- I dressed these muffins up by adding some Wilton White Sparkling Sugar to the tops right before baking. It gives them more of a professional straight-from-the-bakery look! You could even use a sprinkling of Sugar in the Raw, too.
- Or leave off the sugar if you want a completely refined sugar-free muffin.
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg (freshly ground if possible)
- ¼ cup butter, softened to room temperature
- ¾ cup honey
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin
- 1 cup chopped toasted pecans
- Wilton White Sparkling Sugar (optional)
- Move oven rack to middle position and preheat to 350 degrees F. Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners; set aside.
- In medium bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Whisk until combined; set aside.
- Using an electric mixer or stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat butter on medium until light in color, about 2 minutes. Add honey, egg and pumpkin and beat until combined, about 1 minute. Slowly add flour mixture, and mix until just blended and no flour streaks remain. Fold in pecans.
- Scoop batter into muffin cups using a 4-tbalespoon scoop (if you don’t have a scoop just distribute batter evenly). Sprinkle a pinch of Wilton White Sparking Sugar over each muffin cup. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove muffins from pan and place wire rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
