    These pumpkin muffins are extra special because they use fresh baked pumpkin. Can also be made into a loaf if you prefer.

    • 2 cups (400g) white sugar

    • 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
    2. Split pumpkin in half. Remove seeds and strings. Place on baking tray, cut side down. Cover with foil and bake in preheated oven until tender, about 90 minutes. Remove pumpkin pulp and puree in blender. Measure out 2 cups pumpkin puree; set aside.
    3. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, bicarb soda, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together 2 cups pumpkin puree, vegetable oil and eggs. Stir pumpkin mixture into flour mixture until smooth. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.
    4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.
