4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease 24 mini muffin cups or insert paper liners.
Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and spices. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg, oil, milk and pumpkin puree until well mixed. Stir in dry ingredients just until combined; do not overmix. Divide batter among cups, sprinkle each with a few pumpkin seeds and bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a muffin comes out clean, 15 to 17 minutes. Let cool in pan on a rack for 5 minutes, then turn out and let cool completely.
This was very easy to make and the little muffins are quite tasty. I would make this again but would add more of the spices (clove, nutmeg, cinnamon). They are not super sweet, so if you want something real sweet, this is not the recipe for you.
