Pumpkin and pecan microwave muffins

If I didn't know I wouldn't guess that those muffins were baked in microwave. Only 4 minutes !(for 900-watt microwave oven). Those muffins were moist, reasonably sweet and crunchy. The recipe comes from 'The Australian Women's Weekly'.

Ingredients for 12 muffins:
  •  225g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 75g Dark Muscovado sugar
  • 80 ml grape seed oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g pumpkin pure
  • 60 ml thick cream
  • 75g pecans
Place 6 silicone muffin cases on microwave plate.

Chop the pecans into small chunks.

Put the flour, spices and sugar into a big bowl and combine all ingredients together. Add half of chopped pecans, save the rest to sprinkle on the muffins.
To the bowl with dry ingredients add the oil, whisked eggs, pumpkin pure and cream and combine. 
Spoon the batter into prepared muffin cases, abut 3/4 full. Sprinkle with pecans. 
Cook one 6 muffins batch at the time, uncovered, on Medium - High (70%) about 4 minutes or until just cooked. Stand 1 minute before turning muffins onto wire rack. 
Repeat with remaining batter.
