Recipe Time - Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love this time of year because pumpkin is involved in lots of baking recipes.  I have a great recipe for Pumpkin Bread but came across this recipe on Facebook so I thought that I would try it out….


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

4 eggs

2 cups sugar

1 15 oz can pumpkin

1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

3 cups flour

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 – 2 cups chocolate chips

Beat together eggs, sugar, pumpkin and oil.  Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt – doesn’t call for it but I threw some cloves in, maybe 1/2 tsp.  Add to pumpkin mixture and mix well.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 2/3 full of batter.  Bake at 400* for 16-18 minutes.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to wire rack.

Optional part – which I didn’t do – Cream cheese filling.

8 oz cream cheese

1 TBS sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

Beat together these ingredients.  Fill muffin cups 1/3 of the way full and add a dollop of cream cheese filling then top with more batter.

I know that this recipe calls for a lot of oil but it made about 36 muffins. 

Let me know if you make them and what you think
