My daughter had been asking me to make pumpkin muffins with her for weeks before I finally made it go right to bake these tasty pumpkin cornbread muffins with her. She loves helping me in the kitchen and hasn’t met a baked good she didn’t like!
We love baking muffins together and have shared other muffin recipes, including: Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins with Streusel Topping, Cheesy Cornbread Zucchini Muffins, Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, Banana Blueberry Muffins with Vanilla Muffin Glaze, and Strawberry Banana Muffins. We love our muffins around here!

- In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and melted butter.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and mix in the wet ingredients.
- Fold in the pumpkin and mix until just combined.
- Scoop the pumpkin cornbread batter into lined muffin tins.
- Bake for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
How long do pumpkin muffins last?
Pumpkin muffins last 3 days at room temperature. They can be frozen for 3 months or longer.
How to freeze pumpkin cornbread muffins?
- Allow muffins to fully cool to room temperature.
- Place muffins in a freezer safe bag in a single layer with muffin liners left on.
- Suck as much air out of the bag as possible using a straw.
- Label the bag with the date they were frozen and the type of muffin they are.

- Warm muffins in microwave, if desired, and serve with butter.

No. Pumpkin muffins can be stored at room temperate in an air-tight container for up to 3 days. Homemade pumpkin muffins do not contain preservatives so they will need to be frozen if you are planning to eat them after 3 days.
