What You Need To Make Pumpkin Muffins 

These muffins are easy to make with basic ingredients. For the muffins, you will need: 

Pumpkin puree mix: This used to be available only during the cold season, but now it can be found in the baking aisle year-round. 

Oil: I used organic extra virgin olive oil, but you can also use a different light oil that you prefer. 

Sugar: For a sweetness.

Eggs: Make sure they are a large size. 

Baking powder and baking soda

Flour: Unbleached. 

Salt: Just a bit. 

And the spices: Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves.

  • Bake at 350F for 15 minutes. (This is for mini-muffin size.) Add more baking time if you’re making the regular muffin/cupcake size. Check by inserting a toothpick into one muffin, making sure it comes out clean.

How to Make Vanilla Glaze for Pumpkin Muffins

The glaze is optional, but I truly recommend you whisk it together, because not only is it made with just three pantry staple ingredients, but it makes a perfect and tasty addition to the muffins. 

All you need to make a glaze is to whisk together vanilla, milk, and confectioners sugar (powdered sugar).
