{The Girl Kyle Bakes} Pumpkin Spiced Muffins

It's been pumpkin mania in my kitchen lately.  I baked three times last week and two of those items involved pumpkin.  Never been a big fan, but I'm coming around.  Especially when the pumpkin treats are dipped in melted butter and then rolled in cinnamon sugar.  Really, you cannot go wrong!

Pumpkin Spiced Muffins

{via 20 Something Cupcakes}


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

Sugared Coating

  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat muffin tin with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and spices. In a separate large bowl, whisk together oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, pumpkin and buttermilk until smooth. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined – do not over-mix!

Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Bake at 350°F for 16-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Meanwhile, melt butter in one bowl and combine sugar and spices in another bowl. Remove muffins from oven and cool for 2 minutes, or until just cool enough to handle. Dip each muffin in melted butter, then roll in cinnamon-sugar to coat.

Makes 12 muffins.
