Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and you can’t have fall without pumpkin. I want pumpkin flavored everything. Especially the pumpkin spice chai tea latte from Starbucks. These pumpkin spice muffins are one of my favorites as well. This recipe puts me in such a cozy fall vibe. They are so soft and fluffy. I really enjoy having them for breakfast. You can really taste the pumpkin and the wonderful fall spices like cinnamon and pumpkin spice.

    if I use pumpking filling, is the pumpkin spice still needed?

      I would suggest using pumpkin pie filling. It has additional ingredients already in it that may not go well with the recipe. Pumpkin puree is best. They sell it canned if you don't want to use fresh pumpkin.

    This is a fabulous recipe. I added cranberries. I decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup. Great texture.

    • Like that addition! And I cut the sugar too, generally in half. American recipes are very sweet and my group is a little older and want to be mindful of sodium, sugar and fat. So I modify so they can enjoy. Will prepare both, with and without fresh cranberries. Thank you!
