Sandi's Pumpkin Muffins

On a forum I was on, this recipe had been passed around over and over again.  It's simply wonderful!!!

Sandi's Pumpkin Muffins

3 cups sugar
1 cup oil
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. baking soda
2/3 cup milk
1 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
Optional:  1 cup chopped nuts and/or 1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and either grease muffin tins or put in cupcake liners.

In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla until combined.  In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking soda.  In another bowl, mix together the milk and pumpkin.  Add half of the dry ingredients to the sugar/oil/egg/vanilla mixture in the large bowl then add half of the milk/pumpkin mixture and combine.  Add in the rest of both of the mixtures to the large bowl and combine well.  Fold in the optional nuts/chocolate chips if you are using.

Fill the muffin tins 2/3 full with batter and bake for 20 minutes or until inserted cake tester comes out clean.  Let cool on a rack.
