Pumpkin muffins make a delicious treat for breakfast, brunch or a snack! Made of pumpkin, brown sugar, and pumpkin spice, these pumpkin muffins are a family favorite!
This pumpkin muffin recipe is one that I love to make throughout the year, but especially throughout the fall when we love pumpkin recipes to the MAX!
Full of pumpkin flavor and my favorite spices mingled in my pumpkin spice mix, these muffins have it all. They even have the warm flavor of brown sugar dark with molasses that just adds another layer of fall flavor to these babies.
Can you tell that fall is by far my favorite season of the year? Well, I say that, but then when spring rolls around next year, I’ll be declaring my undying love for it, too. I think the two have so much in common without being the extreme of summer or winter. Our summers in the south are liquid heat while our winters aren’t nearly as extreme. But for me, fall is like a balm to all that summer swelter and with it, I welcome recipes that embrace that signature fall flavor.
So, grab some pumpkin and mix these pumpkin muffins up as soon as you can. I think they’ll be just what you need to get in full fall fever along with me.
Here’s my Pumpkin Muffins Recipe. I hope you love them as much as we all do.
Simple Pumpkin Muffins Recipe
- Preheat oven to 375º F. Prepare muffin tin with liners or by spraying with nonstick baking spray. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, pumpkin pie spice mix into a large bowl. Set aside.
- Cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in eggs and pumpkin, being sure to incorporate well. Add flour mixture about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring to combine. Add vanilla extract and buttermilk.
- Spoon pumpkin muffins batter into prepared muffins tins, filling about 3/4 full. Place in preheated oven and bake until the lightly spring back to the touch and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center, about 12 minutes for mini-muffins and 25-30 minutes for full-size muffins. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
