Based on the Vegan with a Vengeance recipe by Isa Chandra Moskowitz
Makes 1 dozen muffins.
Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly grease a twelve-muffin tin.
Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices. In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin, soy milk, oil, and molasses. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix.
Fill the muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick or knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Made these on 2006.12.07, without any of the variations below. They're very good. The cooking time in my oven was just a smidge over 18 minutes, and they could probably have done with a minute less.
Next time I should try adding the walnuts.
Fold in a cup of either chopped fresh cranberries or chopped walnuts, or a mixture of the two.
The bone-chilling scream split the warm summer night in two, the first
half being before the scream when it was fairly balmy and calm and
pleasant, the second half still balmy and quite pleasant for those who
hadn't heard the scream at all, but not calm or balmy or even very nice
for those who did hear the scream, discounting the little period of time
during the actual scream itself when your ears might have been hearing it
but your brain wasn't reacting yet to let you know.
