If you bake one thing in the next few weeks, make it these muffins. They are to.die.for. There’s really no better way to ring in fall than with pumpkin, and making something that can serve as breakfast, a snack, or dessert is even better!
Thanks to our wonderful kitchen lighting and my still-developing camera skills, these kind of look like corn bread muffins and are incredibly yellow. But I swear, they’re soft and gooey and perfect, not to mention incredibly easy to make!
