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….
They are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!!!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
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
