  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with 7 jumbo liners or 12 regular size liners.

  3. In a larger bowl, combine pumpkin puree, milk, melted butter, eggs and vanilla.
  4. Add the pumpkin mixture to the flour mixture and combine gently and only until flour is fully incorporated. Over mixing will result in flat muffins.
