Pumpkin Muffins

Enjoy these pumpkin muffins on their own for a light breakfast dish, or use them as a base recipe and experiment by adding in nuts or fruit. Here is how the recipe got its flavor: "I combined several recipes and adjusted them to get the flavor we love. Sometimes I add raisins or finely chopped apple or pear." -Cindy Kahn, Londonderry, NH
