I love pumpkin bread, but lacking any will power whatsoever, I'll just keep carving off little slices until I've eaten the whole damn loaf.
So I thought I'd take Fannie Farmer's pumpkin bread recipe and make it into muffins.
I also added some mini chocolate chips because, well why the hell not. Life is long, chocolate is good and that's all I need to know on a Friday night of a long work week.
Sorry about the cursing but sometimes it's unavoidable. Like work.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup pumpkin puree, canned is fine
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Stir together the flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda. Mix the pumpkin, oil, eggs, water and spices together, then combine with the dry ingredients, but do not mix too thoroughly. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Pour about 1/3 cup into each of about 16 paper lined muffin cups.
Bake for about 15 minutes until the muffins lose their shiny look, turning the pan once during cooking.
Makes about 16 average sized muffins.
