Sweet potato needs more love, rather than pumpkin! Its flavor is deep, rich, and well-suited to a spiced muffin/cupcake. In this recipe use canned puree, rather than baked at home potatoes. It needs to be silky smooth. Of course pumpkin can be used instead, but look for the sweet potato puree, it is worth it!
PS: I find these taste even better come the next morning as breakfast 😉
