Serves:

12

Ingredients

1 ½ cups cake flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 cup canned pumpkin

2 large eggs

½ cup vegetable oil

¾ cup plus 1 Tablespoon Bourbon Smoked Sugar, divided

1⁄2 teaspoon Fine Himalayan Salt 

1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice, divided

Butter or non-stick cooking spray, for greasing pans

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F.


Sift flour, baking powder, and baking soda into a bowl.


In a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, eggs, oil, 3/4 cup Bourbon Smoked Sugar, salt, and 1 Tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice together. 


Stir in flour mixture. Mix well, but don’t over stir.


In a separate bowl, combine 1 Tablespoon Bourbon Smoked Sugar and 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice. 


Grease muffin pan. Divide the batter evenly in each cup. Sprinkle sugar mixture evenly over top.


Bake 12 small muffins for 20-25 minutes, or 6 large muffins for 25-30 minutes.


Check for doneness by performing the toothpick test. Sink a toothpick down through a muffin from its highest point. Pull the toothpick out; if there's no muffin batter clinging to it, muffins are done. 


Remove muffins from the oven, and place pan on cooling rack. Serve when cooled.
