Best Muffins Ever! Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

These are the best Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins made from scratch. You can also make them as doughnuts. This is an easy pumpkin recipe to get you ready for Fall!

I have a few recipes that are my absolute favorite recipes. Here’s one of them, since the air outside is getting a littler cooler and it’s Fall. My sister says these are the best things she has ever tasted. She also thought it was a very bizarre type of muffin and she was afraid to try them. Good thing I convinced her they were wonderful!

Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾  cups all-purpose flour
  • ½  cup brown sugar
  • ½  cup white sugar
  • 1 (heaping) teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½   (heaping) teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½   (heaping) teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼  teaspoon baking powder
  • ½  teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ½  cup melted butter
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin ( I have also used fresh pumpkin puree)
  • 1 (6 ounce) package butterscotch chips (about 3/4 cup)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease mini-muffin or regular pan with cooking spray.
  2. Sift together the flour, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon,  nutmeg, ginger, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Whisk together the eggs, butter, and pumpkin in a separate bowl. Mix the flour mixture with the egg mixture. Stir in the butterscotch chips; pour into each cup of the muffin pan to about 3/4 full.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.Bake mini muffins for 10 to 12 minutes and large muffins for 15-18 minutes.
I like to really taste the spices in my muffins so I put a heaping amount in the mix. I usually make some large and some mini muffins.

My boy loves them!

Thanks for the comment. It's a combination I have never thought of before but I had both in my pantry and I wanted muffins!

I have a very similar recipe and we love them! I agree that the combo sounded odd to me too, but once you taste them, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
