It's getting near the time that we bring out those left over cans of pumpkin from last year! I always seem to have a can or two so today I decided to try this Star butter flavored Olive Oil with my Pumpkin muffins to see how they turned out! Oh My Goodness! They are so moist and the topping is to die for! I made a dozen of the jumbos because they are just the right size for that mug of hot coffee! You can't have more muffin than coffee nor can you have more coffee than muffin, right? These are the perfect size. I have even added a link for the size I used so that you can order it for only $8.95 at Amazon!
1-15 ounce can pure pumpkin (not pie filling and not puree)
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoons melted butter
pinch of kosher salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees put your muffin liners in your muffin pan. I used a jumbo tin and jumbo lines. (See below).
In a large bowl, mix your dry ingredients and set aside, (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves). Set aside.
With an electric mixer, combine the oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and pumpkin. Mix until not quite combined. Finish mixing with a rubber spatula. Add water and blend until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and again mix with the electric mixer until just combined enough to moisten. Finish mixing the batter with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Fill each muffin cup 2/3 with the batter. Set aside while you make the topping.
Stir together the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, butter, and salt. I use my finger tips so that I don't break up too many lumps. Top each muffin cup with a spoonful of topping, spreading so the tops are evenly coated and press down slightly.
Bake at 350 for 25-32 minutes. If you decide to make regular size muffins change the time to 18-24 minutes for regular size muffins, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean. Makes 12 jumbo and 20-24 regular muffins.
