I found this recipe on the internet back in 2004.  I made the cake for a cookout that I was attending and the cake was all eaten up before the meat was served.  Yeah, it's that good!

I love everything that has to do with pumpkin, including the seeds.  My two sisters and their families went skiing in Colorado over Christmas break. Apparently The Queen (older sister) brought some of these on the trip with her.  So, at request of the younger sister I made a batch.  Since The Queen lives 2 hours away.  I'm so glad I got the recipe from her, these are amazing!  No need for frosting, really no need for the powdered sugar either but a plain muffin doesn't make for a pretty picture.
