Recipe Ingredients for Pumpkin Walnut Muffin

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
2 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups dark brown sugar (firmly packed)
10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes

3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups chopped walnuts, toasted

Recipe Directions for Pumpkin Walnut Muffin

  1. Pumpkin Puree:

  2. To prepare pumpkin puree, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Cut 1 sugar pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds. Place the pumpkin halves cut-side down in a roasting pan. Add I cup water to the pan and bake 45 minutes or until the skin wrinkles. Remove the pumpkin from the pan. When cool enough to handle, scoop out the flesh. Press the flesh through a fine sieve set over a bowl. Clean the sieve, then line it with a double layer of cheesecloth and set it over another bowl. Spoon the puree into the sieve and drain in the refrigerator overnight.

  3. 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Butter twenty-four 2 ? ( cup) muffin-pan cups.

  4. 2. In a bowl of a heavy-duty mixer, sift together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Stir in the granulated and brown sugars. Add the butter with flour mixture and toss. With a paddle attachment at low speed, mix the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.

  5. 3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, stir into the flour mixture. Stir in the pumpkin puree, milk, and vanilla, just until blended. With a rubber spatula, fold in the walnuts.

  6. 4. Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared muffin-pan cups. Bake 15-20 minutes, rotating the muffin pans between the upper and lower racks halfway through baking, until a wooden skewer inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool the muffins in the pans 5 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pans and cool completely on wire racks.

  7. Makes 2 dozen muffins.
