Fall is the best time to try everything pumpkin! This Brown Butter Pumpkin Streusel Muffins recipe adds a lot of family fun at the breakfast table with its warm buttery pumpkin aroma. The highlight of this recipe is the browned up butter with its delicious nutty aftertaste that perfectly soaks into these muffins and makes them even moister. If you haven’t already made muffins using the real pumpkin puree, then this delicious recipe is the one for you. It’s also a great way of using up any leftover pumpkin puree that you might have at home. That’s the beauty of the fall season when it’s neither too warm nor too cold and creates a perfect ambiance for indulging in cold desserts or warm stews made with pumpkin.

Simple baking recipes are always to be treasured for the fact that you can make them anytime of the year irrespective of whether pumpkin is in the season or not. You can make this recipe healthier by adding oat or quinoa flour to the all-purpose flour in a half and half substitution. You can by all means also use canned pumpkin puree for this recipe. If you do use the canned puree, don’t be confused between pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie filling as they are two different ingredients. For this recipe, it is important to use only pumpkin puree. You can bake these muffins in advance and freeze them for eating anytime you crave a little something pumpkin for dessert.

Along with the spices, you can also add cookie butter to give the muffins a gingerbread-like a flavor. Always remember to use fresh spices in desserts for achieving the best results. Do not use old spices that have been sitting in your kitchen for a long time as spices tend to lose their aroma and do not have a long shelf life. A basic principle when baking muffins or cupcakes is to bring the cold ingredients like eggs and butter to room temperature. This will help in achieving the softest textured muffins giving a tender crumb to the muffins. As well as using superior quality of ingredients such as pure vanilla extract and butter will add a great taste and bring out the richest flavor in desserts. When you have the best baking recipes handy, it’s easier to bake them by following the above basic tips for baking. Always make sure to fill the muffin liners only 2/3rd full to prevent the batter from spilling. Overfilling the liners will not only waste the batter but also make it difficult to clean your oven from the mess.
