Honey Pumpkin Muffins

I made this recipe with a 23lb baby in one arm. So it's pretty easy if you have both hands free. :) The muffins turned out really dense and moist. They were so good that I hope to make more soon. (Makes 12 muffins)

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 cup chopped toasted walnuts
  1. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg; set aside. 
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter until light; beat in honey, egg and pumpkin. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing until just blended; stir in walnuts. 
  3. Spoon into 12 greased or paper-lined 2-1/2 inch muffin cups. 
  4. Bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. 
  5. Remove muffins from pan to wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
