LOOKING for: moist heavy pumpkin muffins or bread

loraleeNovember 23, 2009

I have a recipe for pumpkin bread but it is light and fluffy and can be made into pumpkin bars or muffins.

I would like it to be heavier and more moist. Do you have such a recipe or can someone tell me what I can do with my recipe to make it heavier and more moist?

hugs to you for helping.

This might work for you. They're too heavy for me.

PUMPKIN MUFFINS (makes 12)
1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted & cooled
1 cup canned or fresh mashed pumpkin
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup broken walnuts
1/2 cup raisins or chopped dates (I omit)

In a medium bowl, combine both flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, cloves & salt. In a large bowl, beat together the brown sugar, eggs & butter until light & frothy. Blend in the pumpkin & buttermilk. Add the dry ingredients & stir just until moistened. Fold in the nuts & raisins or dates but don't overmix. Spoon into greased muffin cups & bake in a preheated 400° oven for 15-20 minutes or until lightly brown.~~Rumsey Rare Bites

I just came from the store too with buttermilk and pumpkin. What do you think is the ingredient that would make a bread or muffin heavier?
Mine called for oil, and this only has 1/4 cup butter, sounds healthier already.

I think one way to make pumpkin bread or muffins heavier would be to use more of the canned pumpkin.

I will try more pumpkin. What about using shortening instead?
My recipe called for oil which is always liquid and if I used shortening perhaps this would make it heavier?

I would actually substitute half of the oil for full-fat yogurt-- that seems to work for me for the dense/moist texture.
