Pumpkin Muffins

I can't resist a pumpkin stand and, in my area, they are everywhere in October. So when I pick up pie pumpkins, I always roast a couple so that I can freeze pumpkin puree for use in the winter months. This pumpkin muffin recipe is my eldest daughter favourite muffin, that is if made without raisins. I love raisins in baking so when I make this recipe, half a batch gets raisins and the other half is made without.
