lorena's pumpkin muffins

Lorena made these for a birthday last month and I couldn't stop eating them.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Makes 12 muffins

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (or 1 cup all-purpose flour + 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour)
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 TBSP baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground or freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/8 tsp cloves
1 cup pureed pumpkin (fresh or from a can-- don't use pumpkin pie mix!)
1/2 soy milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil (or 1/4 cup apple sauce + 1/4 cup oil)
2 tablespoons molasses
1 cup chopped fresh or frozen cranberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a twelve-muffin tin. Sift
together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices. In a separate bowl,
whisk together pumpkin, soy milk, oil and molasses. Pour the wet ingredients
into the dry and mix. Fold in chopped cranberries. Fill the muffin cups
two-thirds full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in
the center comes out clean.
