Pumpkin- Gingerbread Muffins


3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1/4 cup molasses

1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. In a large bowl, combine sugar, butter and molasses; beat well with an electric mixer. Add egg and pumpkin, beating until smooth.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to pumpkin mixture, stirring just until moistened (the batter will be thick and lumpy).

4. Fill lightly greased muffin cups half full. Bake 20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

    I just realized I misread the recipe and used 1/2 cup of butter instead of 2 cups. They turned out great and I definitely would use 1/2 cup of butter again.

    Hi Lori,
    I thought they turned out very moist, but why no spices? I thought they needed something to kick it up a little. I added walnuts and raisins also. Thank you for sharing
