Pumpkin Spice Cornbread Muffins
These Pumpkin Spice Cornbread Muffins take the tradition cornbread muffin to the next level!
I’m so excited to share these delicious Pumpkin Spice Cornbread Muffins with you. When it comes to picking my favorite Thanksgiving Day food, hands down it’s cornbread muffins. Since I was a little girl, I have always loved cornbread muffins…I could eat the whole plate of muffins all by myself but that would mean that I wouldn’t have any room for a slice of my delicious Apple Pecan Pie! ☺
So this year I decided to mix things up a bit when it comes to making my beloved cornbread muffins. I used my new favorite cornbread mix, Simply Homemade Cornbread. I then mixed in all the delicious flavors of pumpkin spice. And guess what, they turned out AMAZING! I can’t wait to make them again for my family on Thanksgiving.
JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:
✔ For this cornbread muffin recipe, I used canned pure pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling. So just make sure that you use pure pumpkin or you will have a much different tasting pumpkin spice cornbread muffin. ☹
✔ You can make this recipe for either 12 standard-size muffins or 24 mini muffins. All you need to do is prepare my cornbread recipe the same for either standard or mini size muffins. The only thing that changes is the baking time, for standard muffins bake for 14-16 minutes and if your making mini muffins bake for 11-13 minutes.
✔ Serve warm with butter or honey. Enjoy, your going to LOVE these! ♥
