Southern sweet cornbread is infused with delicious pumpkin in these quick muffins. Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins taste like fall in a small, tasty, package.
#PumpkinWeek continues!! I skipped yesterday. I knew, because of how I have been feeling lately, that I was not going to be able to pull off a full week of recipes. I’m crazy, but not THAT crazy. Kuddos for those that have created a whole week of pumpkin recipes. Maybe I’ll plan a little better next year and be able to do both #AppleWeek and #PumpkinWeek in full force. A girl can dream can’t she??
Last year, my recipes were full of curry flavors. I don’t know why. I just got on one of those kicks. I’ve talked about them a few times on my blog. Because of this, I’m all about baking my pumpkin goods this year. However, these are not your typical pumpkin muffins, breads, etc.
On Monday I shared some delicious Pumpkin Pretzel Sticks that would definitely rival any bar or pub. Honestly. They were so good that I can’t wait to whip up the second batch of dough. Today, I’m sharing my recipe for Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins. Hi, Terri! I know I said this was going to be just plain old cornbread, but I couldn’t get the hubs behind regular cornbread, so I turned them into muffins. Sorry for the confusion!!
Yup. Today, I’m all about these pumpkin cornbread muffins. Not only are they sweet, but have the delicious cornbread flavor that you’re hoping for. These muffins are perfect with a little whipped honey butter. They are also good with some spicy greens and barbecue. Finally, you just eat them plain right out of the pan after they’ve cooled enough to scarf down. No? Just me??
These are quick. I mean surprisingly quick. Saturday I woke up with a stress induced, migraine size headache. I know this was a direct result of working late, the type of work I was doing, and my glorious attempt at getting home on Friday.
Since I was down for the count almost all of Saturday, I wasn’t able to make all the express I wanted to. This means that last night I baked these babies up, photographed them, and I’m writing about on the way in to work today. Nothing like waiting until the last minute.
Because of all of these I can easily say that these are without a doubt the quickest and easiest muffins to make. Case in point, the hubs started cooking chicken thighs on the grill before I started this muffin recipe. By the time the thighs were done I had made these pumpkin muffins AND smashed potatoes.
See what I mean? Just try them. You will surely agree with me that not only are they the most delicious pumpkin cornbread muffins, but the fastest muffin recipe you’ve ever made.
Seriously. Just look at that texture. And that most crumb! It was difficult, but I did manage to save a few for my coworkers. I know. I’m so generous. They’re the luckiest coworkers ever. They’ve had beer cheese, macarons, countless cupcakes, beads, hummus from last year’s #PumpkinWeek. Speaking of which, I should make some macaroons again soon.
Now I have to confess. Unlike me, the hubs isn’t a huge fan of pumpkin. I know! It’s insane. I mean, how can he not love that delicious vegetable that’s definitely versatile and can be savory or sweet? I’m still not sure if it’s the pumpkin itself, because he likes acorn and butternut, or if it’s all the spices that are pumpkin spice. I haven’t quite figured that one out.
Nevertheless, I’m not all that concerned with it. It simply means that when u want to make something pumpkin I either plan to eat it all or take it to work. I’m fine with the latter. Well, maybe not this time. These babies are fantabulous. Maybe I won’t share…
What’s your favorite pumpkin recipe?
