It’s starting to feel a little more like fall in San Diego. It’s still nice and warm out but we are getting a few cool days here and there. We were home for the weekend and decided to start making some fall recipes. You’ve got to try these Easy Apple Pumpkin Muffins With Cream Cheese Frosting and caramel! I’m keeping it simple with minimal ingredients and tasty flavors. They are moist, filled with pumpkin and apples then topped with a delicious cream cheese frosting and a drizzle of caramel. These muffins will be awesome for any fall get together.
How To Make Easy Apple Pumpkin Muffins
To make these muffins really easy, I started with a cinnamon streusel muffin mix. I don’t really like the flavor of veggie oil in muffins, so I replaced it with a cup of pumpkin. You’ll also need water and eggs to make the muffin batter. For some added flavor, we added an apple chopped into small chunks.
I started by pouring the mix into a bowl while James chopped up the apples. We just got a new cookware set for the kids to try out and are loving it. A huge thanks to Tovla Jr! The kids love the complete cooking kit. I’ll be sharing more about it as we cook but James is using the knife, cutting board, spoon and apron in this post.
Next, we added the water, eggs, pumpkin and apples to the mix. James did all the stirring.
Then we used a cookie scoop to pour the batter into a butter and flour sprinkled cupcake pan.
Bake the muffins for about 18 minutes and let cool on a wire rack. While the muffins are cooling, you can make the frosting. I used 1 package of cream cheese with half a cup of powdered sugar. Blend until smooth and pour into a ziplock bag.
Pipe the frosting onto each muffin. Pour caramel sauce into a ziplock and pipe on top of the frosting.
