Tim Hortons Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Recipe by Winged Emotion
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 12 muffins




  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line a 12 cup muffin tin with muffin papers.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, ginger, cloves and nutmeg. Then mix in 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the pumpkin seeds.
  • In separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: eggs, pumpkin puree, oil, milk, and vanilla. Pour over dry ingredients and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  • Spoon into prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle with remaining pumpkin seeds. Bake in center of a 375°F (190°C) oven about 20 to 25 minutes or until muffins are golden and tops are firm to the touch. Let cool in pan on rack for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
  • While the muffins are baking, whisk together the cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice. (If the frosting is too thick, add a bit more lemon juice. If too runny, add more confectioner’s sugar.) Set aside.
  • When muffins are cooled completely, inject each muffin with a generous amount (1-2 tbsp) of cream cheese frosting and enjoy!
