Mix flour, baking powder, 1 pinch of salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Add to egg mixture and stir everything only until the ingredients have combined. Finally, fold in the grated pumpkin and chopped hazelnuts.
Set 6 baking cups in a muffin tin (6-well) and fill with the batter. Bake in preheated oven on the middle rack at 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 3) (approximately 400°F/convection 350°F) for 25-30 minutes.
