  • 1 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup soft brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp oats


  • Preheat the oven to 400F. In a large mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients, including the sugar. Break up any large clumps of sugar if there are any.
  • In another bowl melt the butter and whisk in the eggs and pumpkin puree. Make sure it is well combined.
  • Add the pumpkin mixture to the dry ingredients and mix very well. You can use a hand mixer if you find this easier.
  • When the batter is smooth prepare a 12 cup muffin tray with paper cases.
  • Spoon the mixture evenly between the cases and sprinkle with oats t decorate on top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. A skewer inserted should come out clean. Return to the oven if they need a few more minutes but be careful not to overbake.
  • Cool for 5 minutes in the muffin pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


If you want to add some extra texture to your muffins then add in some chopped walnuts.
