You can make these in the morning, then pop them back into the oven to reheat while the turkey is being dismantled.


  • 1 cup pumpkin purée , (canned or homemade)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • sunflower seeds , or pumpkin seeds for sprinkling


  • Measure the pumpkin puree, milk and vegetable oil into a large bowl, hand a large spoon to your young assistant (or your sluggish sister-in-law) and have her stir the mixture until combined.
  • In a smaller bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, stirring just until everything is moistened.
  • Spoon the batter into a well-greased muffin pan, filling the cups almost to the top. Have your helper sprinkle the tops with sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
  • Bake at 400°F (200°C) for 12 to 15 minutes, or until very lightly browned on top.
