  • 1 ½ cup all purpose flour
  • cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree

Cream Cheese Filling

  • cup cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup sugar


  • Preheat oven to 400° and spray 12 muffin cups with cooking oil (or fill with muffin liners).
  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin spice and salt.
  • In a measuring cup, mix the milk, vanilla extract, egg, pumpkin puree and oil until well blended. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix with a fork until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  • Fill muffin cups ½ way with batter.
  • Mix the cream cheese and sugar to make the cream cheese filling. Scoop about 1 tablespoon onto the batter, pressing down gently to flatten the cream cheese. Pour another layer of batter on top to fill the cups ⅔ to the top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.


Store in an airtight container for 3 days or in the freezer for 6 months.
