Recipe Comments & Reviews

Tastes like pumpkin pie in a muffin! My new go to recipe.
This recipe is so good I've made these muffins three times in the last month! I can't eat gluten so I substituted Jules Gluten Free Flour cup for cup in this recipe and they turned out PERFECT. I was amazed that they didn't go flat like so many other recipes I've tried. I baked double one day and froze the extras for quick snacks or breakfast on the go. They reheated fine (30 seconds in microwave) and tasted just as good as when I pulled them out of the oven. Almost all of my Christmas goodie recipes are coming from this site and I've been telling all my Gluten-Free friends to try it!!!
I found the recipe rather dry, and not very flavorful. My old recipe was much better and I will stick with it.
Best!!! I made this for breakfast this morning. My husband and kids loved it!!! I added little ground cloves. Yum-O!
My family loved this recipe. It made our holiday breakfasts fun. We'll use it often even if it's not the holidays.
I made a batch of these tonight for breakfast tomorrow, but they won't last that long. My family gobbled them up. I'm keeping this recipe!
These muffins lack flavor......needed more spice and pumpkin!
They are tasty, moist and a great breakfast treat. This recipe freezes well, and also works as pumpkin bread.
Lacked flavor.
Easy to make and delicious!
These muffins are excellent! Easy to make and they turn out very pretty - with high, rounded crowns. They are delicious with butter or cream cheese.
Doubled the recipe and added 1/4 tsp. ground cloves. The muffins are moist and so easy to make.

Cranberry Swirl Sweet Rolls
November 24, 2015 by Mallory

One of my favorite parts of the Thanksgiving meal is my husband’s homemade cranberry sauce. It’s a tart and sweet sauce, with hints of orange zest and brown sugar. I always have him make twice the amount needed because I love having leftovers. This year, I decided that rather than serving it alongside leftover turkey and mashed potatoes, I was going to try something new. We still have guests lingering the day after Thanksgiving, so what better way to ease the turkey “hangover” than with homemade sweet rolls for breakfast? More ...
