Pumpkin Bread Muffins

This past weekend, I decided to try a different variation with my pumpkin bread recipe.  I made Pumpkin Bread Muffins instead.  I was able to make 18 muffins and 1 loaf of pumpkin bread using this recipe.  I topped each muffin with cream cheese frosting and a candy pumpkin.  I also trimmed them with orange gel icing that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  These turned out to be the perfect fall treat!

Pumpkin Bread Muffins


  • 1 Cup of Apple Butter
  • 2 Cups of Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 Cup of Sugar
  • 3 Cups of Flour (or Gluten Free All Purpose Flour)
  • 1 15oz Can of Pumpkin
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Pumpkin Candies
  • Orange Gel Icing


Preheat the oven to 375*.

In a large mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients together in order until dough forms.

Spray a bread pan with non stick spray and pour into the pan. I believe using a standard size bread pan, this would make 2 loaves. I decided to use a bunt cake pan instead of using two loaf pans. To make the muffins use a muffin tin, this made 18 muffins and 1 bread loaf pan for me. This can also make 24 muffins and a smaller loaf of bread as well.

This will bake in the oven for 1 hour or until the bread takes shape. I usually do the standard toothpick or fork test, to be sure no dough comes out on the toothpick.

Serve sprinkled with a little powdered sugar.
