  • Hand Mixer or Stand Mixer
  • Wooden spoon or sturdy spatula
  • Whisk
  • Bowls
  • muffin cups
  • Muffin pan
  • Wire rack


  • 1 1/2 cups of canned pumpkin 337g
  • 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar 300g
  • 1/2 cup of canola or vegetable oil 120g
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons less 216g
  • 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder 6g
  • 1 1/2 tsp of salt 8g
  • 3/4 tsp of cinnamon 2g
  • 1/4 tsp of nutmeg 1g


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F/176 C. In a large bowl mix together the eggs, pumpkin, oil, and sugar. Use a sturdy whisk, wooden spoon, or mixer.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. You may use a sifter too if you like.
  • Add the dry ingredients about a third at a time into the batter. Don't use a mixer at this point, only use a sturdy whisk or a wooden spoon. Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Prepare a muffin pan with paper cups and spoon in the batter into each about two thirds full.
  • Optional: Make the crumble topping by mixing together the flour, sugar, butter, and cinnamon with a fork. Sprinkle that on top of the muffins, before baking. Use extra flour if you like your crumble to be drier.
  • Bake the muffins for 23 to 26 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Allow them to cool for a few minutes in the pan and then remove them and allow them to cool on a wire rack completely. Enjoy!



Note: You may be able to get more than 12 muffins from the batter, it just depends on how much you fill-up the muffin pan.
