This recipe definitely needs doctoring but as a general guide it's ok if you know what you're doing. You do need to add xanthan gum if you are using an all purpose flour that doesn't have it otherwise your muffins will be dense. It needs adjusting as far as wet to dry ratio. I increased the pumpkin to 3/4 c & milk by a few tbsp and had no issues with them being too dry. I used vanilla almond milk since my daughter is casein free. I also increased the amount of cinnamon but these muffins were still very lacking in flavor. The overall texture and consistency of the muffin turned out good, just lacking flavor. If we try again , just will add more spices and pumpkin.
I made these today as mini-muffins...they were delicious and moist! Plenty sweet, too. Thanks!!
