Pumpkin Apple Spice Muffins

I know it is not yet fall…..and in just a few short weeks we will all be bombarded with PUMPKIN EVERYTHING…and Salted Caramel EVERYTHING!  So, I will hit you up first with this yummy fall breakfast recipe: Pumpkin Apple Spice Muffins.

I found this on Mel’s Kitchen Café and it is wonderful.  The Pumpkin Apple Spice Muffins are so moist and the crispy topping is perfect.  I made 1 dozen and then froze the batter in muffin cups for use later.  Easy Peasy!

Pumpkin Apple Spice Muffins

Pumpkin Apple Spice Muffins

1 ⅔ cup all purpose four

1 cup sugar

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon baking powder

1 cup canned pumpkin

½ cup butter, melted

2 large eggs

1 apple peeled and finely chopped (I have used Granny Smith and Pink Lady)

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

2 tablespoon sugar

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees*

1. Combine the flour, sugar, 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl.

2. In a small bowl, mix together the pumpkin, butter and eggs.  Add to the dry ingredients and mix just until moistened.

3. Fold in diced apples.  Scoop batter in to greased muffin tin filling ⅔ full.

4. Mix together 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice and 3 tablespoon sugar and sprinkle over top of muffin batter.

5. Bake muffins at 350 degrees for 20-23 minutes until done in center.  Cool slightly and serve.

*If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can make your own.  To make 1 teaspoon equivalent use ½ teaspoon cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon ground ginger, ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg, and ⅛ teaspoon cloves.  Mix well.  This is also cheaper than buying the prepared spice mix.

      1. Loved them! D did too. He kept stealing the ones I was trying to eat, lol. I need to get it typed up and take a couple pictures. I've made a few recipes for chocolate muffins and I don't like any of them as is, so I've made my own version.
