Ingredients

  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 15 oz. can pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 c. cake flour or 1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, blend the sugars, eggs, pumpkin and oil until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Do not over mix!
  • Add paper liners to 12 muffin tins and fill each liner 3/4 full with batter.
  • Meanwhile, melt 1 c. of the chocolate chips by microwaving in 30 second intervals, stirring well after each 30 seconds. Top each muffin tin with a heaping Tablespoon of melted chocolate and using a butter knife gently swirl it into the center.
  • Top the muffins with the remaining chocolate chips.
  • Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
