These yummy muffins were made with mostly organic ingredients and fresh eggs from my ducks. The recipe is adapted from a pumpkin bread recipe from my Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook that my parents gave me as a wedding present many moons ago.

  • 4 c organic whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 cups organic sugar
  • 2 Tbs baking powder
  • 1 Tbs cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 c organic cooked, mashed, and strained pumpkin or squash
  • 4 duck eggs or 5 chicken eggs
  • 1/2 c organic sunflower oil
  • 1 c organic milk or whey
  • 1 tsp organic molasses
  • 2 c dried cranberries

Sift together 2 cups of the flour and the remaining dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add the pumpkin, milk, eggs, oil, and molasses. Beat with electric mixer on low until well blended, then on high speed for 2 minutes. Add remaining flour and mix well. Stir in dried cranberries.

Pour batter into greased or lined muffin cups and bake in 350 F oven for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center of middle muffin comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes, remove muffins from pans and cool completely on wire rack. Makes approximately 3 dozen muffins.

Notes: Although I try to use as many organic ingredients as I can, you can still make this recipe with non-organic ingredients. You can also halve all ingredients if you prefer not to make such a large batch. If you do, use 2 chicken eggs per batch. The muffins may not rise quite as well, but they will still be yummy! You may also use canned pumpkin.

    Oh your cranberry pumpkin muffins looks scrumptious! And so do the other recipes on your blog. Am going to have to get the ol’ apron and baking stuff out and get going! Would be good to bake while the weather’s cold this week and freeze some for unexpected company.
    Have a great one!
