A wonderfully dense, satisfying pumpkin muffin flavored with cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice and enhanced with pecans or raisins.
Combine sugar, butter and molasses; beat well.
Add egg and pumpkin, beating until smooth.
Stir together remaining ingredients; add to pumpkin mixture, stirring until just moistened (the batter will be lumpy).
Fill lightly greased muffin pans half full.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 20 minutes, or until pumpkin muffins are nicely browned.
