These Pumpkin Pie Spice Cornbread Muffins feature a dash of cinnamon and sugar on top. They’re easy, tasty and loaded with your favorite Fall flavors!
So the other night my wife said she had a serious craving for cornbread with dinner. We had some maple butter hanging out in the fridge from our visit to a maple tree farm a few months back. And if there’s one thing that pairs well with maple butter…it’s cornbread! Maple butter is a creamy spread–think peanut butter but made entirely out of maple syrup.
Since maple butter is sweet, I realized that it might be fun to put a slightly sweet spin on my traditional cornbread recipe. With the Fall baking season arriving, I figured cinnamon and sugar needed to be involved somehow. That’s when it hit me…pumpkin! I know pumpkin is usually reserved for October and November, but I just couldn’t help myself. I just had to break into the pumpkin a bit early! The Fall flavors in International Delight’s Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer would be the perfect addition to these cornbread muffins!
Growing up in the South, I’m familiar with adding molasses to cornbread, so I suspected the pumpkin and cinnamon would work well, too. And the result? Well, let’s just say these Pumpkin Pie Spice Cornbread Muffins didn’t last too long around our kitchen!
Can I just tell you guys how excited I was to see International Delight’s Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer in the store? (Apparently I wasn’t the only one who was excited because I grabbed the last bottle on the shelf. And the whole time I kept looking around like someone was going to steal it from me, too. The nerve of some people!) I was pleased to see that International Delight now makes their Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer in a fat-free and sugar-free version. Score! I foresee many crisp, Fall mornings ahead of me involving the back porch and a pumpkin spice latte!
One of my favorite things about baking fresh cornbread muffins is just how incredibly easy they are to make! My wife texted to say that she’d be home in about 30 minutes. I started this recipe, and the cornbread was just coming out of the oven when she walked in the door. Talk about a tasty way to end the day. Embrace the Fall and whip up a batch of these Pumpkin Pie Spice Cornbread Muffins for dinner tonight!
