Today’s new recipe: Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins

I found this recipe in Martha Stewart’s November 2010 Everyday Food magazine.


1 1/4 sticks butter

3 cups flour

2 1/2 t baking powder

1/4 t baking soda

1 t salt

1/2 t ground nutmeg

1/4 ground allspice

1/3 C buttermilk

1 1/4 C pure pumkin puree

3/4 C light brown sugar

2 large eggs

for the sugar coating:

3/4 C granulated sugar

2 1/2 t ground cinnamon

1/4 C melted butter

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 12 standard muffin cups.  (If you have any leftover batter, I used it up in my mini muffin pan.  Just bake the minis for half as long- 15 minutes).

Make batter: in a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and allspice.

In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and pumpkin.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs, one at at time.  With mixer on low, add flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with 2 additions of the pumpkin mixture and beat to combine.

Spoon the batter into prepared muffin pan.  Bake for approximately 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Meanwhile, melt the butter and combine the sugar and cinnamon.  Let the muffins cool 1o minutes in pan.  Working with one at a time, remove the muffins from the pan and brush all over with butter, then toss with sugar/cinnamon.  Let muffins cool completely. (Store in an airtight container up to 1 day.)

So far, only Bob has tried these and he seems to be a big fan!  He prefers the mini ones to the regular size muffins.  I specifically made these for a friend who is recuperating from surgery.  We’ll see how much she likes them later today!

  1. From the recuperating friend: I am feeling MUCH better after eating these muffins! Very moist and flavorful! I agree with Bob, though; they would be good as mini muffins. A smaller size would be less messy with the sugary coating (which is awesome, so you definitely want to leave the coating on!!).
