Make This!!

My biggest fan hoping for a bite.

I saw this recipe for pumpkin doughnut muffins & decided I had to make them this morning. These are extremely good. The muffin is very moist and not overly sweet. The sweet is definitely in the sugar topping.

Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins
1 1/4 sticks unsalted butter
3 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
1/3 c buttermilk
1 1/4 c pumpkin puree
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
3/4 c sugar
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 350*. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder & soda, salt, nutmeg & allspice. In a small bowl, whisk pumpkin & buttermilk. In a large bowl, cream butter & brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. With mixer on low speed, alternate adding flour & pumpkin mixtures. Bake in greased muffin tin for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool ten minutes. In a medium bowl, mix sugar & cinnamon. Remove muffins from tin one at a time. Brush all over with butter, then toss in sugar mixture. Let cool on wire rack. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
