I made pumpkin spice muffins. They're the best muffins I've ever made and they're the best muffins I've ever eaten. No exaggeration – try them for yourself and you will be in pumpkin heaven.

As a self-confessed autumn obsessive, I just adore baking when September arrives. Give me a rainy day, the radio on low and the ingredients for a baked fall delight and I'm happy. One rainy day this September saw me bake a batch of twelve Pumpkin Spice Muffins.. and oh boy are they amazing..

I've never really baked muffins before – they have never really come out properly. I'm better at cupcakes, biscuits, victoria sponges and loaf cakes – well, I was until now.

My first attempt at Pumpkin Spice Muffins came out perfectly and I just had to share them with you guys.


1 & 1/2 cup of self raising flour
3/4 cup of granulated sugar
1 tbsp of dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp all spice
1 cup of canned pumpkin
2 tsp pumpkin spice syrup
2 large eggs
6 tbsp of melted and cooled butter
1/4 cup of soured cream
1 tsp of vanilla extract

Then all you do is put all of the dry ingredients in a bowel, then mix in the eggs, then mix in the soured cream and then the syrups, vanilla and melted butter. Mix it all together and put into twelve muffin cases.

Then make a crumb topping by making a crumb topping (1/2 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of white sugar, 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar, 1/2 tsp of nutmeg, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, 4 tsp of butter).

Then sprinkle the crumb topping on each of the muffins before baking.

Bake on 180 degrees in a fan oven for 25 minutes.

It's really as simple as that!

I wanted to make mine a little extra fancy so I decided to make a pumpkin spice frosting and marzipan decorations.

For the frosting I creamed together butter, orange lustre dust, cinnamon and nutmeg with royal icing sugar. When creamed together I scooped the frosting into a piping bag with a star nozzle and whirled the frosting around the top of each muffin.

I then placed marzipan decorations that I had made a few days prior on top of the frosting. I then sprayed each muffin with gold spray to give them an opulent sheen.

I am so pleased with how these muffins turned out. Not only do they look fantastic, but they actually taste AMAZING! No word of a lie, these muffins are probably my proudest bake... like, ever!

I'd love for you to try them out and if you do decide to give these a whirl, I would be so chuffed if you could tag me in/send me photos of your creations! They're so fun to make and they also taste SO good. I honestly cannot wait to bake them again this fall!

Let me know if you'll be trying this recipe.. I would love to see your creations!!
