Oh, Miss Annie, these muffins are WONDERFUL!! I made them for a Halloween morning meeting at work, and they received rave reviews from the whole crowd. I forgot to add the nuts to the muffin mixture and did not realize my mistake until they were already in the muffin pans. (Hey, it was 5:30 a.m. and I had not yet had my morning cup of tea!) I quickly mixed up a crumb topping, added it to the top of the muffins after I had piped in the cream cheese, and baked the muffins as per the recipe. (Crumb topping: 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon mixed together with 2 tablespoons melted butter.) The topping was a great addition; I think I will continue to forget the nuts mixed into the muffin batter. Oh, I also decreased the amount of baking powder in the recipe since it seemed excessive - I used about 3 teaspoons instead of 5 and the muffins were perfect. If my baking powder had been fresher, I might have cut it down to 2 teaspoons. Thanks for a great recipe. I'l make these again and again!
Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! Tried these yesterday and they're gone today! I'll try these again with the topping Miss Gracie suggested but they are wonderful without it. Thanks for the recipe!
I made these last week and they weren't quite what I expected. They all got eaten throughout the week, but I wasn't too crazy about them.
These were so good! As recommended by someone else I did add a topping which was very good but I'm not sure if they even needed it. Thanks for a great recipe!
These were so good! I also omitted the nuts because I don't like them with pumpkin. The only thing different that I did was that I used a cup of whole wheat pastry flour, and I added a 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice for extra flavor. I also substituted canola oil and about 1/4 cup of applesauce. I try to make recipes healthier. These are my new favorite pumpkin muffins, as I love the taste of pumpkin and cheesecake. This recipe is a keeper!
These were tasty and my family ate them right up. Were fun to make.
My kids (1 and 4) loved these muffins and ate them for breakfast and as a snack. I didn't use the nuts or the raisins because I was afraid the kids wouldn't eat them...think I will at least add the rasins next time! Thanks for the great recipe!
DELICIOUS! I made these to take to a senior's residence. I doubled the recipe and made it in two seperate bowls with the same ingredients in each. I also added in about 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips into one pumpkin batter, and increased the baking powder by 1/2 teaspoon. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed these wonderful muffins, they all went like hotcakes, not a speck left LOL! What a wonderful muffin recipe, this is a keeper for sure. Thanks so much for sharing Miss Annie!....Kitten:)
These muffins are fabulous. The only change I made was to use dried cranberries in place of the raisins. My husband doesn't usually eat muffins and he gobbled down three as soon as they were cool enough to eat.
So it looks like this recipe has been edited. I used 2t. of baking powder (as is written in the recipe) and had great results. Made these sans Miss Gracie's topping, but I think I'll try that next time. I also omitted the nuts. My boys have declared these to be pumpkin Ding-Dongs and their new favorite. Thanks so much for the recipe.
