This is a great way to use up any frozen pumpkin you may have in the freezer. You don’t have frozen pumpkin? Am I the only one with an overabundance of frozen pumpkin? Don’t answer that, please. If you don’t have the frozen you can use canned pumpkin.
I have also added the instructions for a crumb topping which is optional. My kids love muffins, especially Cinnamon muffins, so I add this to them to keep them happy.
Crumb Topping: (optional)
- 4 T all-purpose flour
- 1 t ground cinnamon
- 2 T butter or margarine
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350
Line 24 muffin cups or grease the Muffin Pans.
Mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
In a large mixing bowl combine the pumpkin, eggs, oil and juice, beat just until blended.
Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, stir just until moistened.
Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling about 3/4 full.
**If using the crumb topping:
In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in centers comes out clean.
Cool on wire racks for 5-10 minutes. Serve warm or store in an airtight container for later.
