Description

These muffins taste like a cross between a pumpkin muffin and a cinnamon sugar donut.

These muffins are sweet on top (where I brush them with butter and dip the tops in cinnamon sugar) and spicy, pumpkin-y, and moist.

It’s a delicious combination that’s just perfect for fall!

Instructions

Step 1:

Preheat your oven to 350F.

Step 2:

In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger). Mix and set aside.

Step 3:

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.

Step 4:

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.

Step 5:

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.
