Having something like these warm Pumpkin Gingerbread Muffins come out of the oven when the weather is crisp and cool is a perfect sweet treat that will warm you up quickly.
Make a batch of these muffins and let the warm cozy flavor wrap you up like a warm blanket.
Just one whiff of these hot out of the oven will have everyone running to the kitchen,
believe me, these pumpkin muffins won’t last long…
the delicious flavor of ginger and molasses is irresistible and if you’re like me enjoying pumpkin all year long is a VERY good idea.
Be sure to keep your pantry stocked with pumpkin so you can make these all year long.
This is not your ordinary muffin, this muffin is full of more flavor. It’s blended beautifully with ginger, and molasses to give these pumpkin gingerbread muffins spectacular flavor.
Stack them up and carry them with you and see how many people reach for one!
I bet they will be grabbed up quickly.
These are perfect for bringing to a friend, enjoying them over some coffee at work or even for a cozy dessert.
I like using foil cupcake wrappers for these… of course, any cupcake liner will work. These don’t allow any oil to seep through neither do glassine liners.
