Pumpkin and chocolate muffins

I first saw a recipe for this on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pickyourownpumpkinsbednall

So was worth a try but I altered the recipe a little due to first time trying it. These are so yummy, personally can not taste the pumpkin, so next time add more but really holds t moisture in them. My two normally only eat fruit cake but loved these.

So here how we baked ours.


375g caster sugar,

300ml pumpkin purée,

300ml vegetable oil,

4 eggs

375g plain flour,

2teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda and 2 teaspoons baking powder

1teaspoon cinnamon.

100g chocolate chips

50g coco powder.


Beat the eggs, adding sugar, pumpkin, and vegetable oil.

In seperate bowl sieve the flour, coco powder,  bi card, baking powder, cinnamon.

Slowly fold into egg mixture. Add in the chocolate chips.

seperate over the muffin tins, we manages to get 24, however amount will depend on if muffin or cupcake cases.

Bake for 15-20 minutes on 200C oven, until slit spring when touched.

We iced with orange butter icing and Halloween themed sprinkles.
