How to make

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (500 mL)all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp (10 mL)baking powder
  • 1-1/4 tsp (6 mL)PC® Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 tsp (5 mL)each baking soda and salt
  • 1large egg
  • 1 cup (250 mL)granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (188 mL)canned or fresh pumpkin pureé (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 3/4 cup (188 mL)plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup (83 mL)butter, melted
  • 2 tsp (10 mL)coarse sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL)spreadable cream cheese
  • 4 tsp (20 mL)pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL)PC® Pumpkin Pie Spice

How to make

  • Step 1Muffins:
  • Step 2Whisk together flour, baking powder, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Set aside.
  • Step 3Whisk together egg, 1 cup granulated sugar, pumpkin pureé, yogurt and melted butter in separate bowl until smooth. Add to flour mixture; stir with wooden spoon or rubber spatula just until no white streaks remain. Do not overmix.
  • Step 4Divide among wells of prepared muffin tin. Stir 2 tsp coarse sugar with remaining 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice in small bowl; sprinkle over muffins.
  • Try this: These muffins are incredibly versatile – try using mashed banana or unsweetened applesauce in place of the pumpkin pureé, or sour cream instead of yogurt.
