Pumpkin muffins are perfect Halloween party fare and are always welcome on the autumn breakfast table or the Thanksgiving bread basket. For a change, add 1 cup raisins or 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans.
3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2. In medium bowl, with wire whisk or fork, mix eggs, pumpkin, melted butter, 2/3 cup brown sugar, honey, and milk. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy).
3. Spoon batter into prepared muffin-pan cups. In small cup, combine remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over muffins. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, rotating pans between upper and lower racks halfway through baking, or until tops of muffins are browned and toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean. Immediately remove muffins from pan; serve warm. Or cool on wire rack to serve later.
* Or use 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves.
