Well, I found my favorite recipe for pumpkin muffins. They were good enough that after a maybe 2-year hiatus of writing blog posts I wrote one up because I know you’ll all be asking for the recipe. I’ll get one up for my famous egg bake soon. I made these muffins often and keep them in the freezer but now that I tweaked the recipe I’ll be making them even more!

If you want to spend $7 for a tiny container of pumpkin spice at the store go for it. You can save a few bucks by making your own so I’ll share the recipe I use. I usually double the recipe and keep it in a mason jar so I always have some on hand:

3 Tbsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground nutmeg
1.5 tsp ground allspice
1.5 tsp ground cloves

What’s your preference- muffin or loaf? There’s something I love about cutting a fresh, hot slice and letting a hunk of butter melt over it. What spice blends do you make on your own?
