These vegan pumpkin muffins were amazing! They are named, "The Best Pumpkin Muffins" and I think they are right up there. I love sweet pumpkin foods. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin bread...yum.
Everyone loves these muffins. (You think I throw around phrases like “The Best” for nothing?) I created them when I was baking for a café and they sold like nobody’s business. They truly are perfect in every way. Variation: Fold in a cup of either chopped fresh cranberries or chopped walnuts, or a mixture of the two.
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/4 cups sugar 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground or freshly grated nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves 1 cup pureed pumpkin (Fresh or from a can; do not use pumpkin pie mix) 1/2 cup soy milk 1/2 cup vegetable oil 2 tablespoons molasses
Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a twelve-muffin tin.
Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices. In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin, soy milk, oil, and molasses. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix.
Fill the muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick or knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
