Pumpkin muffins

In searching for new pumpkin recipes to try, I came across a pumpkin muffin recipe from Cooking with my Kid, declaring it the “best ever pumpkin muffins.” So of course, I had to check out the recipe.

This recipe calls for a lot more pumpkin puree than the other pumpkin muffin recipes I’ve tried. These were tasty, but they are definitely more dense, moist and pumpkin-y compared to other recipes. As a result, my muffins also didn’t puff up much. They puffed up initially but then sank back down because of all the moisture.

I enjoyed the taste and I would make these again. They remind me of the sweet potato muffins I’ve made before.
