Here is a blog from a friend of a friend of mine. While I have yet to visit her restaurant in the Valley, I can assume it's fantastic from her recipes.
I've been following her blog for a few years now and have found results to be consistent and recipes very reliable - I like that in a source. I know if I try something it'll work!
Here are some pumpkin muffins I made from this recipe. I did not have a full can but rather a half can of pumpking purée to use up so I made 18 muffins or cupcakes. I served these without the brown butter glaze as I had no butter in the house at that moment. I did make a cinnamon icing and it was delish.
Simple Pumpkin Muffins
just a smaller quantity than the recipe on her blog
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup cooked and mashed pumpkin (or 1/2 large can)
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 350°. Butter a 12 cup muffin tin (or use paper liners). In a large
bowl, beat the sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla. Add the pumpkin and whisk to
combine well. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking
powder, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the
pumpkin mixture, and whisk just until combined. Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake the muffins for 15-18
minutes. Let cool 5 minutes, then remove muffins from pan. Drizzle with cinnamon icing.
