Pumpkin and semi-sweet chocolate combine in these delicious muffins, which are perfect fare for a cool autumn day. Good for breakfast or dessert!


Streusel Topping: Muffin Batter:


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease and flour muffin pan or use paper liners.

To make streusel topping: Cut margarine into flour, brown sugar and cinnamon, until it forms fine crumbs. Set aside.

To make muffin batter: Mix sugar, oil (or apple sauce), eggs. Add pumpkin and water. Mix with whisk.

In another bowl, sift together flour, baking flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. You can use more or less spice depending on personal taste. Add wet mixture to dry and stir in chocolate chips. Do not over-mix.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Top with streusel topping crumbs. Bake 20-22 minutes for regular muffins, 15 minutes for mini muffins. Test for doneness with toothpick. Watch carefully and do not over-bake.

Notes: This recipe yields a great abundance of muffins, perfect for sharing with family, friends, naighbors or co-workers. These can also be baked as mini loaves. I have not tried it, but believe that these would be good with whole wheat flour in place of regular. Instead of adding the individual amounts of cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon to the batter, you can use about 6 tsp. of "pumpkin pie spice."

I like pumpkin muffins and gingerbread so I made up these muffins to suit my taste They are moist and flavorful!



Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 30 muffin cups with paper liners or grease the tins. In large bowl, combine melted butter, pumpkin, sour cream, molasses, beaten eggs, vanilla and milk. Mix until smooth. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, nutmeg and salt. Add sugars to dry ingredients, mixing well. Add dry mixture to pumpkin mixture and stir until just combined. If batter is too dry, add 1 to 2 Tbs of milk. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups and top with streusel (recipe below). Bake for 16-19 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.




In a medium bowl, mix all together. With a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture is coarse and crumbly. Use as directed above.

The next day she showed up with the muffins for our family. It worked for my son. Now he makes them at least once each fall and eats other pumpkin dishes. The ingredients stay in our pantry. I have put them in Christmas gift baskets and taken them to parties. Every time, without fail, I am ask to share this recipe.
