How to make Pumpkin Spice Muffins?

Pumpkin Muffins are so simple to make.  I make these Pumpkin Spice Muffins in my stand mixer, however you can also mix these up using a hand mixer. 

Both work just fine for this recipe.  My boys love how moist and full of flavor these muffins are and are excited to eat them whenever I make them. 

Pumpkin Spice is just part of the fall season, along with cooler temperatures, and the turning of leaves. 

We love to enjoy Pumpkin Spice Muffins as an after school snack, or even as a treat to take to the neighbors. 

Regardless, it’s such an easy recipe using a Spice Cake Mix, which makes these recipe truly super simple.

Mix together Cake Mix and Pumpkin and fill muffin tins 1/2 – 3/4 full.  Top each muffin tin with Crumb Topping for an extra bit of flavor.

How to Store Pumpkin Muffins?

Pumpkin Spice muffins will last 1-2 days being covered with plastic wrap or foil. 

However, if you wish to store longer, place a paper towel on muffins and then wrap in foil to help keep the moisture from escaping and the muffins from drying out.
