Now, I’m typically not a breakfast girl, but if we’re doing breakfast it’s definitely a pumpkin spice muffin. There’s just something about the pumpkin, the spice, and the cream cheese frosting that gets me everytime. I personally love making these muffins at home during the fall, and sharing with my cousins and friends. If it stays in the house it will definitely all get eaten by me! These muffins are super easy to make, very moist, and the perfect texture! They’re also go with and without the cream cheese frosting!

How to Make Easy & Moist Pumpkin Spice Muffins

This recipe is easy is 1-2-3, and ready in no time. Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and combining all the dry ingredients. Then add in the wet ingredients and mix to combine. Bake for 20-25 minutes, remove from oven, cool, and add cream cheese frosting. So simple, so easy.

Tips for Making Easy and Delicious Pumpkin Spice Muffins (Moist)

  • Add the dry to wet ingredients using the muffin method, which incorporates all the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients all at once.
  • Mix ingredients just until the dry ingredients are moistened (around 10-12 turns if mixing by hand).
  • Fill muffin liners until 3/4 full, this should leave just enough room for the muffins to rise and fill each cup evenly.
  • Check for doneness using the toothpick method. Stick a toothpick in the center of a muffin, remove, and it should come out clean, indicating doneness.

Cream Cheese Frosting

This is totally optional, but so so yummy! The recipe is simple, cream cheese, butter, confectioners sugar, vanilla, and salt. Star by mixing the softened to room temperature cream cheese and butter, then add in the sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix until incorporated and viola!

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit, and line a muffin tin with paper or reusable liners, set aside.

2

In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice, mix until combined.

3

Melt butter, and allow to cool, around 15 minutes.

4

Add butter, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, pumpkin puree, sour cream or plain greek yogurt, pure vanilla extract, and mix together until the dry ingredients are moistened (around 10-12 turns if mixing by hand).

5

Equally divide batter into muffin liners.

6

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until muffins are golden, and toothpick comes out clean when poked into the middle.

7

Remove from oven, and allow to cool in pan.

8

9

If frosting, allow muffins to completely cool, then frost, and serve.

Cream Cheese Frosting

10

Beat the cream cheese and butter together on high speed until smooth and creamy. Start slow to avoid splatter.

11

Add 2 cups confectioners sugar (3 cups if needed, taste frosting before adding, I usually only use 2 cups), vanilla and salt. Mix on low speed for 30 seconds or until most of the sugar combined, then switch to high speed for an additional minute or until all ingredients incorporated.

12

Add to muffins, and store leftovers covered in refrigerator in an airtight storage container for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.

Notes

If you like your frosting on the thicker side, add an additional cup of sugar. // Store leftover muffins in an airtight storage container lined with paper towels.
