Spiced Pumpkin Muffins - Eggless

Happiness to me, is the smell of freshly baked goodies that surround my home! Here I am, typing this post, with such a satisfied happiness, after baking these sweet little goodies for my dear cousin who has come home for vacation. I am now happy to share the recipe that was enjoyed by her and ofcourse all others at home too. This recipe has been adapted from Madhuram's and I have spiced it up a little with addition of fresh spices!

  • Flour - 1 cup (I used 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup of maida)
  • Salt - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Baking Soda - 3/4 teaspoon
  • Garam Masala/All spice powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Ground ginger powder (sukku podi) - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Pumpkin puree - 1/2 cup **
  • Granulated sugar - 6 tablespoons
  • Milk - 1/2 cup
  • Oil - 3 tablespoons
  • Vinegar - 1 teaspoon
  • Vanilla extract - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Choco Chips - to garnish (optional)

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180C
  2. Line 6 muffin moulds with paper liners or grease them
  3. Mix all dry ingredients together (flour, salt, baking soda, spices). Keep aside
  4. Blend all the other ingredients together except choco chips (pumpkin puree, oil, sugar, milk, vinegar, vanilla extract)
  5. Fold in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients
  6. Fill 3/4th of each moulds with the batter
  7. Bake in pre-heated oven at 180C for 15-20 minutes (Mine was done in 16 minutes)
  8. Cool the muffins on a wired rack for 5 minutes and then remove from the moulds and cool completely
  9. Enjoy this tea time treat with your family!

** Pressure cook the pumpkin for 2 whistles and puree it in a mixer or food processor
