  1. I made a half recipe of this. Instead of vegetable oil I used melted butter. I didn't want to use a whole 3/4 cup of melted butter so I cut the amount in half again and used more pumpkin. I cut the sugar back to a half cup for a HALVED recipe and I used - Read more ...
  2. Great muffin! I made these for Thanksgiving. Listened to alot of the prior variations. Used 1/4 cup oil and 1 1/2 cups of applesause. Added 1tsp. pumpkin pie spice. They were great! The key to keeping them moist for days is to wrap each muffin individualy. I wraped them like that and they were VERY - Read more ...
  3. way too much oil not enough pumpkin taste ok but not a keeper!

  8. Fantastic muffins - so yummy! I only add 1/4 cup of oil. I don't substitute and the muffins still come out moist and delicious. I'm not sure why so much oil is included in the original recipe. I also use chocolate chunks rather than chips - they are just really really good muffins!
  9. When I first took a bite of one of these hot muffins the first word out of my mouth was "WoW." I didn't follow the recipe exactly b/c I didn't have everything changed things here and there doubled the recipe AND I took the advice of others. //Here are some things that I changed: / - Read more ...
  10. Quick and tasty. Too much oil as written. 1 cup of oil is plenty.
