How to Make Sourdough Pumpkin Muffins

Equipment:

  •   Stand Mixer or Hand Mixer
  •   Muffin Pan
  •   Measuring Cups and Spoons

Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter
  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 3 table spoons plain greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree

BAKING INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat your oven to 350°F (190°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Set aside.

In a separate bowl combine the pumpkin puree, sourdough starter, melted butter, eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla extract.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to over mix.

Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 up the muffin liners. Pro Tip: A small ladle or ice cream scoop makes filling the muffin cups effortless  

Bake for 30-35 minutes. Use a toothpick to pierce through the center of the muffin to make sure it comes out clean without any uncooked batter. 

Allow the muffins to cool in the muffin tin before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH SOURDOUGH PUMPKIN MUFFINS

Serve warm with fresh butter, cream cheese frosting, or enjoy the muffins plain. They’re that good!

STORING/FREEZING SOURDOUGH PUMPKIN MUFFINS

Store any leftover sourdough pumpkin muffins in an airtight container or cake dome. They should keep well for 4 to 5 days however ours are usually gone by the second or third day.

If freezing, wrap muffins individually with plastic wrap and then in a freezer bag. Reheat in the oven or toaster oven at 350 F for about 20 minutes or until warm.
