Easy Pumpkin Muffins

 Recently, Julie, at Julie's Creative Lifestyle, shared an easy pumpkin bundt cake, and I decided to make the cake into muffins, and put a crumb topping on.   I'm trying to make my way through my Republic of Tea Pumpkin Spice, and Twinings Chai Pumpkin Tea, before I start on my holiday teas.  My pumpkin tea towel and adorable pumpkin are from a sweet blogging friend. 

 My youngest son and daughter-in-law went out of town again, and this time, my son, Mike, and I went to their house to watch the girls.  Here's Harper mixing up the easiest muffins or cupcakes ever. 

 Hayden wanted to help, too, and she's putting on the topping.

 She looks quite pleased with herself, don't you think?

 My morning friends are enjoying their breakfast. 

Yield: 12 muffins

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

These are the easiest and most moist muffins ever! I think a yellow cake mix would work, too, but add maybe 2 teaspoons of pumpkin spice to it. Cream cheese frosting on top would be great if you want cupcakes!


  • 1 Spice cake mix
  • 1-15 ounce can pumpkin (not pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Topping (if desired)
  • 2 tablespoons of softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar


How to cook Easy Pumpkin Muffins

  1. For the muffins:
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Line the muffin pan with cupcake liners, or spray with cooking spray.
  4. Mix the ingredients together in a bowl. 
  5. For the topping:
  6. Mix the butter, flour and brown sugar together to form crumbs.
  7. Fill the pan with the batter, filling to the top.
  8. Sprinkle on the topping, if desired, or use some sparkling sugar, or leave plain.
  9. Bake for about 18 minutes.

  3. There are so many cooks in your family, Kitty. No-one would go hungry, would they. =) You truly have the prettiest china. Love that teapot and the pretty teacup, perfect for fall. I must say Pumpkin Bundt cake would certainly hit the spot.

  4. Kitty, Your muffins look delicious...I wish I had one this morning to go with my coffee! And those can you stand the cuteness?! I had to laugh at Hayden striking her pose! Happy Monday. ♥

  5. The muffins sound great Kitty! It looks like you're all having a blast-enjoy:@)

  7. Another winner Kitty, especially with that crumble topping, YUM!
    Oh how I l-o-o-o-v-e pumpkin!

    Your photos are darling, such happy little helpers you have there.

    Have a wonderful evening~

  8. These muffins are the BEST EVER! I make them often but haven't ever used strudel topping. Such a great idea. I usually add a handful of cinnamon chips..if I have them. Im5having a hard time finding spice cake mix lately! It's good to have that substitute. How fun for you to stay at your son's home!! Love how you're starting them young in the kitchen. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ

  9. Such a pretty tea table setting Kitty with the pumpkin teapot, teacup and saucer. Love the color there. Your muffins look so delicious I am saving your recipe. I'll have to make these for breakfast for Thanksgiving! You had the cutest little helpers too............Happy week.

  12. How happy your mornings are...Adorable princesses!Such fun!Amazing post!I love the gorgeous teapot and the delicious recipe!Hugs!

  13. I love anything with pumpkin in it, except chili! I had that once and it wasn't to my liking. But your muffins look absolutely yummy and such an easy recipe too! Your little sweethearts are just too cute! You are blessed to live so close to them. Thank you, Kitty, for sharing this at No Place Like Home. Have a great week. Hugs...Sandi

  14. I've tried a similar recipe to this and it was easy and very good. But your streusel topping would definitely take these muffins to the next level. I'll have to try that!

  15. I love easy and the sound of those look like just that - pinned!
    I can see why you'd love having your son Mike help with those firecrackers! I bet you slept well on those nights after all day with the girls. Oh, to have that much energy all day, every day!

  16. The muffins look wonderful but those little sweeties are adorable! You are creating such a legacy of love and baking with all of your grandchildren!

  17. Your grandkids are too cute!

    This fall, I leaned into the apple teas so I actually only have 1 pumpkin chai. Last weekend, I went to the Royal Botanical Gardens Tea Festival and bought some holiday teas. I'll be sharing my haul in an upcoming post!

  18. I love all things pumpkin! I would love a muffin with my coffee this morning.
    I'm pinning this darling vignette! That teapot is the cutest!
    Grands are adorable as usual.

  19. Yum! Need one of those with my coffee this morning. Look at your adorable little helpers!!! Love the pictures Kitty. You are such a good grandmother. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  20. Such a sweet post Kitty. The kiddos all look so cute. Hayden is a cutie with your darling pose. You are the best grandma around. Your kiddos will always treasure these memories.

  21. I love that pumpkin tea pot, Kitty! More future bakers in the making :) Such cuties!! How nice that you got to stay with them and have fun baking together ♥

  22. Oh, yum! I love pumpkin anything! It makes it so easy that it starts out with a cake mix, too! I can't wait to try this. Those little grand girls are just adorable! Much love to you, sweet friend. :)

  23. You have the sweetest grandchildren! They must have had a wonderful time making muffins with you!

  24. What a wonderful way to make lasting memories with your grandbabies!! Your teapot is cute!!

  25. Oh these look SO good! And they have to taste so much better after those two little darlings added the special touches! Making memories for a lifetime!

  26. The pumpkin muffins look delish, and I love your teapot, but can you tell me something about the cup? It looks like calico to me, but I have only seen calico in red or blue. I have a good bit in blue that I can no longer use (not a blue thing in this house), but brown I would adore. Is there hope for this calico-loving girl?

  27. Thanks so much for sharing your awesome post with us at Full Plate Thursday, 457. Hope you are having a great week and come back to see us real soon!
