  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 can (15 oz) pure pumpkin
  • ½ cup canola or vegetable oil (can also use melted coconut oil)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Heat oven to 375° and place 12 paper liners into each well of a 12-cup standard sized muffin baking pan. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, cloves, and nutmeg. Stir with a whisk to break up clumps.
  • In a separate smaller bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin, oil, and vanilla extract. Stir with the same whisk until combined together well.
  • Dump the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir together with a wooden spoon or spatula just until combined and no flour pockets remain in the batter.
  • Fill each muffin nearly full with pumpkin muffin batter. You want it slightly below the tops of the muffin liners. Depending on the size of the cupcake liners/baking dish, you can get 12-15 muffins from this recipe.
  • Cook for 20-22 minutes. The tops will be nicely puffy and domed and they should look done. When you touch the top lightly it should spring back up.
  • Let cool or eat one warm with butter!
