I love the flavors of fall, especially baked goodies made with apples, cinnamon, streusel, squash, or pumpkin! A warm-from-the-oven baked scone or a muffin with a cup of coffee flavored with vanilla on a crisp fall morning is definitely comfort food for me. The combination makes my tummy happy.
These pumpkin muffins are one of the first things I make when I feel that first chill in the air, and they may be the easiest muffins you ever make. I love to nestle a batch inside a basket lined with an autumn towel and bring them to a neighbor in need of some baked love.
