Cinnamon Coated Gooey Pumpkin Muffins

I've yet to escape off to a pumpkin patch in the countryside this year, but I have managed to break into my stores of pumpkin puree! Oh those imported tins of american goodness!
Here's a quick little recipe for gooey pumpkin muffins. (To make them even more devilish, they're coated in cinnamon!)

Pumpkins and spice make everything nice.

For the Muffins:
1 3/4c flour
1/2tsp cinnamon
1/2tsp nutmeg
2tsp baking powder
1/2tsp salt
1 can pumpkin puree (approx 3/4 cup)
1/2c heavy cream
1/2c brown sugar
1/3c sunflower oil
1 egg
1tsp vanilla

For the Topping:
2tbsp cinnamon
2/3c sugar
4tbsp melted butter

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In a separate large bowl, blend together the pumpkin puree, heavy cream, brown sugar, sunflower oil, egg, and vanilla until creamy.

Stir in your dry mixture until everything is combined.

Evenly spoon your batter into a lightly floured muffin tin and pop into the oven at 180C for approximately 15min (or until your little pokey-stick tells you they are cooked through!)

Cool the muffins for several minutes, then dip each muffin individually into the melted butter. Finally coat your muffins throughly in the sugary cinnamon mixture.
