Pumpkin Muffins

In the cooler months, I make alot of muffins. Zucchini, banana, and pumpkin muffins are the favorite in this house. When Danny came home the other night with a large can of pumpkin puree, I knew that I had to get crankin with the muffins again. Here is the recipe I use, which is modified from the one in the Panache cookbook.
Mix together y hand or in stand mixer:
2 1/2 c. sugar (it calles for 2 3/4 c.)
1/3 c. oil (calls for 2/3 c.)
1/3 c. unsweetened applesauce (doesn't call for it at all)
3 eggs
2 c. solid pureed pumpkin (freeze any extra from the large can)
In a small bowl, mix together:
3 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon (calls for 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cloves)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
In two additions, mix flour, etc. into pumpkin batter.
Bake at 350F for 18-20 minutes (I never time it, I just just watch them). Makes 24 muffins and a small loaf. The kids love them :)
