Recipe: Molasses Pumpkin Muffins

Homemade molassas pumpkin muffinsIt's finally fall, and that means it's time to get back into baking!

Here's a yummy muffin recipe I make often in the cooler months.


2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (about 10 ounces)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup golden raisins

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup canned pumpkin

1/3 cup buttermilk

1/3 cup oil

1/4 cup molasses

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons turbinado sugar (aka: raw sugar)



  • Preheat oven to 400º.
  • In a medium sized bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, spices, baking soda, and salt and stir well with a whisk.  Stir in raisins.
  • In another bowl mix together brown sugar, pumpkin, buttermilk, oil, molasses, vanilla extract and eggs.
  • Add the brown sugar mixture to the dry ingredients, stir just until moist.
  • Batter will be thick, spoon it into muffin cups with paper liners.
  • Sprinkle muffins with turbinado sugar.
  • Bake at 400º for 15 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove muffins from pans immediately, cool on a wire rack.

Makes 12 -18 muffins.



  • Muffin size - if you fill them completely it makes about 12 muffins.
  • When I made them this time I did not add raisins since my crazy husband isn't a raisin guy, but they are really delicious with the raisins!!
