Preheat your oven to 350F.
In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger). Mix and set aside.
In a second mixing bowl, add the butter (room temperature), brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix on high for 2 minutes. Stir in the pumpkin purée. Add the dry ingredients in two batches, mixing until just incorporated.
Line your pan with baking cups, and fill about 3/4 full. Bake for 20 minutes if you are using a cupcake pan, or 30 minutes for standard muffin size. Let the muffins cool for 10 minutes.
For the topping, mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon in one bowl. Melt 1/2 stick of butter in a second bowl. Brush the top of each muffin with butter, then dip it in the sugar mix.
I’m also sharing my top 4 ideas for entertaining for fall!
Tip 1 – Always have lots of white dishes available when entertaining. I buy white tableware in bulk so I never run out. Also, if you’re going to invest in a few nice serving pieces, I suggest you make them white, too. That way everything will match and your food will stand out against the white background.
Tip 2 – Have lots of mason jars on hand! I use them as glasses for my guests and silverware holders, plus, I’ve been known to bake desserts in them. They are inexpensive, versatile, and perfect for a party! Plus, they give your party a slightly rustic feel, which ties nicely into fall.
Tip 3 – Use free party printables to decorate whenever possible. We have so many collections at Catch My Party for every holiday and occasion, so take a look. Just download the files, print them out, cut them out, and use them to give your party a polished touch. They are easy, inexpensive, and you can do them last minute.
Tip 4- Have your guests go home with something sweet, which is why I shared my pumpkin donut muffin recipe. It leaves your guest with something to remember the evening by and it’s an inexpensive way to say “thanks for coming.” In fact, you can even use these free printable gift tags to adorn your baked good. I promise your guests will love going home with a treat!
If you make these muffins please let us what you think. You won’t be disappointed.
