Delicious Pumpkin Swirl Muffins!!!


Really, I promise, even if you don't like pumpkin (like me), you will love these muffins. Every Autumn we start craving these, so I made some to have ready for breakfast with my parents tomorrow.
Here is the recipe for you


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl, mix cream cheese (room temp.) and
3 Tbl. maple syrup or honey
Set aside

In a large bowl, place
1 cup honey or maple syrup (we like honey)
3/4 cup sour cream
1 cup pumpkin
1/2 stick butter - soft
2 eggs
Mix this well
2 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 ts baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
Mix until well blended

Now fold in the cream cheese filling very gently.
Fill greased muffin tins or lined muffin thins 3/4 full.
Mix 1/2 cup nuts with 2 Tbs. brown sugar and sprinkle on top (I double this...just cuz-yummmm).
Bake in pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly brown on top. We live at a high elevation, so I usually have to bake a little longer.
Now....go enjoy those wonderful muffins with some butter!

  4. So, what kind of pumpkin do you use? Please don't tell me you grow your own and mush it up for muffins...I think I'll buy the can!

  9. I'm glad to have found your blog! Your family is absolutely beautiful. The first thing I saw on your blog are these muffins! I jumped up on this cool Saturday morning and got to it! They are in the oven as we speak! I cook a lot and luckily had all the ingredients! Can't wait to follow your blog and see your newest addition in your arms!

  10. I burn pumpkin candles so my house can smell like that without my waistline suffering the consequences. Waistline be sniggered, I am making these tonight for tomorrow's breakfast!

  11. Mary asked about size of the cream cheese, it is the large one...sorry that I wasn't clear with that...

  12. YUMMY. I can almost assure you though that mine will not even come close to turning out as pretty as yours did! Oh well, the kids won't mind. They will be gone in 3.5 seconds flat anyway. ;0)
