Delicious Pumpkin Muffins

It was a Sunday morning not long ago, and we wanted something tasty for breakfast but were tired of the same ol same ol pancakes or waffles. I looked in my cabinet, spied a leftover can of pumpkin- and remembered the awesome pumpkin muffins my mom used to make for us. I did a bit of googling and found this recipe from Smitten Kitchen.

Pumpkin Muffins
Letters, Gourmet, November 2006
Adapted from the American club, in Kohler, Wisconsin
1½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pumpkin-pie spice (I used clove and nutmeg, I didn't have pumpkin pie spice)
1¼ cups plus 1 tablespoon sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Put oven in middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put liners in muffin cups.
Whisk together pumpkin, oil, eggs, pumpkin-pie spice, 1¼ cups sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl until smooth, then whisk in flour mixture until just combined.
Stir together cinnamon and remaining 1 tablespoon sugar in another bowl.
Divide batter among muffin cups (each should be about three-fourths full), then sprinkle tops with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake until puffed and golden brown and wooden pick or skewer inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.
Cool in pan on a rack 5 minutes, then transfer muffins from pan to rack and cool to warm or room temperature.
