Pumpkin Ginger Nut Muffin Recipe

Updated on October 24, 2016

These muffins are my grandma's recipe. They are so moist, and so tasty ! When I was a child we would make these together. Grandma made me a special apron, and we would "work" hand in hand. My favorite part was cracking the eggs.

I have now passed that tradition on to my own children. Now I'm the one picking out the egg shells from the cracked eggs.

This recipe looks like it's complex, but it's really simple and so worth the effort !

History of Muffins

Nothing warms my heart more then fresh fall muffins. The history of the muffin is a pretty neat story.

American style muffins by design are considered quick breads. They are cooked in individual pans known as muffin (or cupcake) pans. It wasn't until the end of the 18th century that these tasty treats started making their yummy appearance !

The first American cookbook called American Cookery emerged into the market in 1796.

Muffins have made such an incredible impact that there are three states that have adopted official muffins.

New York took on the apple muffin in 1987. Then Massachusetts in 1986 took on the corn muffin as their muffin of choice. Finally, Minnesota decided that the blueberry muffin was delectable enough to adopt as their own.


Easy Homemade Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

This is a great fall pumpkin muffin recipe, and an easy way to use that extra pumpkin. My kids love the flavor, and they are so easy to make !

3 cups of flour

1 teaspoon of salt

2 cups of sugar

2 teaspoons of baking soda

2 cups pumpkin puree

2/3 cup of melted butter

4 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup of water

1 teaspoon of nutmeg

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of allspice

2 teaspoons ground ginger

2 cups walnuts or pecans, chopped

4 tablespoons candied ginger, chopped well

In a bowl, add together your flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt. In a separate bowl, add together the pumpkin, eggs, water, butter, and all the spices.

Make sure to incorporate well, now add the wet mixture to your flour mixture, but don't over mix. Add the nuts and candied.

Cook at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
