Best Muffins Ever! Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

by Janell on September 6, 2011

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


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


  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!

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.

Pumpkin and butterscotch chips are a great combination!

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!
