Pumpkins are in season! Every time I see them at the grocery store, I am tempted to buy some, but I never do because cooking pumpkins seems like a lot of work. It's hard to cut and peel and it takes time to cook. However, that doesn't stop me from using pumpkins in the kitchen. There are canned pumpkins for lazy people like me. They are perfect for pies and quick soups. This pumpkin muffin recipe also calls for canned pumpkins. The aroma of the spices reminds me of the holiday seasons, which is actually around the corner. These muffins are for grown ups, slightly sweet and a bit spicy. You can increase the amount of sugar to one cup and reduce the clove and nutmeg to 1/4 tsp for a more kids-friendly version.
