These Jumbo Pumpkin Muffins are full of warm pumpkin spices and taste so perfect for fall. They’re moist, fluffy, packed with pumpkin flavor and most importantly JUMBO! I like to top my muffins with raw sugar before baking to give them crunchy bakery-style muffin tops! If you don’t have a jumbo muffin pan, these muffins can also be easily made in a standard size muffin pan.

Ingredient Breakdown

All-purpose flour – this gives the muffins structure.

Baking soda & baking powder – both leaveners are needed to help the muffins rise.

Cinnamon, nutmeg & ginger – needed to help give the muffins their pumpkin spice flavor.

Pumpkin puree – adds flavor and moisture. Make sure to use pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin puree has 100% pumpkin while pumpkin pie filling already has spices and sugar added to it.

Vegetable oil – adds moisture and makes the muffins soft!

Granulated & brown sugar – sweetens and tenderizes the muffins. The brown sugar makes it extra moist! Either light or dark brown sugar will work.

Eggs – helps bind the ingredients.

Vanilla extract and salt – enhances flavor.

How To Make Jumbo Pumpkin Muffins

2. In a medium bowl, whisk the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth and well combined.

3. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. The batter will be thick!

Pro Tips For Jumbo Pumpkin Muffins

  • Weigh your ingredients using a kitchen scale! Measuring ingredients by volume is not accurate; baking is a science after all!
  • Don’t over mix your batter! This will cause too much gluten development which will make the texture of the muffins rubbery and gross.
  • Sprinkle raw sugar on top to get that signature crunchy muffin top. You could also use sparkling sugar.
  • Fill your muffin cups 2/3 of the way full to get tall muffin tops. For a jumbo muffin pan I like to do 3 scoops of batter per muffin cup using this cookie scoop.

Did you know that you can also freeze leftover pumpkin puree? Simply transfer it to an airtight container or a zip-top bag and place in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight when you’re ready to use it!
