shortage of pumpkin

My kids love these muffins. It is all my one son wants for breakfast. In our area their is a shortage on pumkin. I can't find any. So instead of using pumpkin I used can sweet potatoes. They worked great and everyone still loves them either way.

The Perfect Pumpkin Muffin!

by S. Sara , , on Feb. 2010

So delicious, I baked five more batches from scratch in the same week! We weren't too worried about the health factor, so I tweaked the recipe a tad by: 1. Cutting the sugar from 2 cups to 1 3/4 cups and adding 3 Tablespoons of molasses for more flavor 2. Instead of whole-wheat flour, we used 1 cup of oatmeal and 2 cups of all-purpose flour 3. Adding 1/2 cup of plumped raisins (that had been soaked in boiling water for 15 minutes) 4. We also added 1/2 cup of chopped pecans, increased the cinnamon to 3 teaspoons and threw in a dash of vanilla (1/4 tsp) for good measure! Wow, I am getting hungry just typing about it. Seriously, these are the best muffins EVER!!!!

I made these with modifications and made them as miniature muffins to reduce the calories even more..about 100 calories per muffin. My family loved them. It made about 5 dozen and I froze about 3 dozen for later.

Excellent with minor modifications

We really enjoy these muffins. I only reduce the amount of sugar by about 25% and replace half of the oil with apple sauce. It still has plentu of sweetness!

Wonderful All Season Muffin

by C. Cathy , North Carolina on Jul. 2009

This is a superior muffin. It was well liked by a wide range of ages, and just delicious. It is good for a breakfast treat or night time snack. I've made this twice in less than a week, they are that good. It is not overly sweet, nor too bland, just a nice balance.
