Pumpkin Muffins

Ingredients

1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin (from a 15-oz can)
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preparation

1
Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350F.
2
Put liners in muffin cups.
3
Whisk together flour and baking powder in a small bowl.
4
Whisk together pumpkin, oil, eggs, pumpkin-pie spice, 1 1/4 cups sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl until smooth, then whisk in flour mixture until just combined. Fold in optional walnuts, if using.
5
Stir together cinnamon and remaining 1 tablespoon sugar in another bowl.
6
Divide batter among muffin cups (each should be about 3/4 full), then spinkle tops with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake until puffed and golden brown and a wodden pick or skewer inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.
