  8. 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour (see TIPS), fluffed to aerate before measuring or 247 grams

  9. 1 cup (243g) sugar

  10. 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

  11. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  12. 1 teaspoon table salt

  13. 1/4 teaspoon cloves

  14. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  15. 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

  16. PUMPKIN MIXTURE

  17. 1 or 1-1/2 large eggs, see TIPS (if doubling the recipe, use 3 eggs)

  18. 1/4 cup (45g) vegetable oil

  19. 1/4 cup (58g) water

  20. 3/4 cup (185g, about half a 15-ounce can) canned 100% pumpkin puree (see TIPS)

  21. DRIED FRUIT

  22. 1/2 cup (60g) dried cranberries or currants, optional but recommended

  23. Orange liqueur to cover, optional

  24. FLOUR MIXTURE In a large bowl, stir together the flour mixture.

  25. PUMPKIN MIXTURE In a second bowl, whisk the egg until well combined, add the remaining ingredients and whisk until just combined.

  26. COMBINE & REST With a spatula or wooden spoon, stir the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture. Let the batter rest for an hour. (Now?s a good time to set a timer to remind yourself to preheat the oven.)

  27. DRIED FRUIT If the fruit is dry, soak in liqueur to plump up while the muffin batter rests. Just before baking, drain off the liqueur and gently stir into the batter.

  28. BAKE Preheat the oven to 400F. Lightly grease a muffin tin or use my favorite silicone cupcake liners. With two spoons, one to scoop and one to scrape, fill the muffin tins, then gently smooth the tops. Bake for 20 ? 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool for 5 minutes before gently removing from the muffin tin and serving.
