Happy Halloween And Some Pumpkin Spice Latte Doughnut Muffins For Fiesta Friday

dc88e20f1d0c04890ff8f88e071729dd

How many of you have had a Pumpkin Spice Latte? They are really delicious and are a greatl hot beverage on a cold Fall/winter morning. This was my inspiration for these muffins. Pumpkin, spice, coffee baked into a delicious cake like muffin dipped in butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar. The recipe is one of my favorite muffin recipes from Food52 Cinnamon Sugar Breakfast Puffs. It’s really delicious. I wanted to switch it up a bit and add some pumpkin and coffee to mimic the latte. Β They are wonderfully soft and cake like with a hint of pumpkin and coffee.

I thought this would be a nice sweet treat to bring to Fiesta Friday, sorry Angie you might find some sugar granules on your floor, they are a little messy but sooooo good. There are no co hosts today so sweet Angie is manning the helm herself, Thanks Angie for always being there and if any of you would like to join the party feel free to follow the link, we need co hosts to step up to the plate.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Doughnut Muffins

Adapted from a recipe on Food52 from five and spice

Makes 12 muffins

1/3 cup melted butter

1/2 cup sugar

1 large egg

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp allspice

1/8 tsp ginger

1 heaping tsp powdered or granulated coffee or espresso powder

scant 1/2 cup whole milk at room temperature

3 tbs pumpkin puree

1/2 stick or 4 tbs unsalted butter melted

cinnamon sugar

Melt butter either on the stove or in the microwave in glass or ceramic. Set aside to cool. Pre heat oven to 350 degree’s and butter or oil/spray muffin tin.

Add sugar and egg and cooled butter to mixing bowl and beat until light and creamy approximately 2 minutes. In separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and spices and set aside. Heat the milk just until warm in the microwave and add the coffee, stir in the pumpkin. Β On medium low speed alternately beat the flour mixture and wet ingredients only until combined. Spoon into muffin tin (NOTE: the muffins are small so spoon only a little of the batter to each) The recipe makes exactly 12 muffins. Β Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool in muffin tin until they are just warm enough to handle. Have your melted butter and cinnamon sugar ready. Dip each muffin in butter first covering the entire muffin and then into the cinnamon sugar. Enjoy immediately.

  3. Loved the post Suzanne!
    The pug carved pumpkin is so gorgeous.
    The donuts are perfect for this season. Love the pumpkin spice. And love the fact that it doesn’t have pumpkin in it ;).
    The Pinterest pics of dressed up pugs are adorable.
    Happy Halloween Lady!
    I am keeping it healthier this year and my girls are not happy. Handing out small pretzel packs with glow in the dark sticks:)

    October 31, 2015
    • Ha! Oh my there would be a coup d’etat here if there was no candy. Good for you doing something healthier than the sugary stuff. Thank you so much. Love all the pugs in costume and I wish I had the kind of talent that could produce that carved pumpkin. Happy Halloween!

      October 31, 2015

  6. So are you and dogs going trick or treating now?

    October 31, 2015
    • I am going out to mingle but my dogs passed away just recently I used to dress them in costume and take them out and they stayed with me outside when I gave out candy. This year I am going out in remembrance of Izzy and Nando.

      October 31, 2015
      • Oh.. So those are old photos? Sorry, for your loss.. Celebrate their lives.. Its day of the dead too,remember?

        October 31, 2015

  7. Happy Halloween to you too. Your muffins look moist and very tempting. I bet they smell good while baking. I’ll give these a try because I have loads of pumpkin that I don’t know what to do with. Love the combination of spices…

    October 31, 2015
    • Thank you I was just thinking I would like to make with spelt flour I bet they would be delicious. Thank you so much!!

      October 31, 2015
  8. Dear God these muffins look fantastic! I simply must make them! I know you miss your puppies today! Did you carve the pug pumpkin? That is impressive!

    October 31, 2015
    • Thanks Michelle, the muffins are really good, not exactly a healthful muffin but they sure taste good. Oh my no, I wish I were talented enough to carve something like that,

      October 31, 2015
  9. Yum! I love how these look, but I bet they taste better than they look!

    October 31, 2015
  10. This is the time of year I miss being in America the most… you guys really know how to celebrate Halloween and the festive season. These little muffins sound like a delicious way to bring even more happiness to the occasion. Yum!

    October 31, 2015
    • Getting ready to go out now and have some Halloween fun, thank you so much. The muffins taste like Fall to me. Thanks Margot.

      October 31, 2015
  11. What a great post – so creatively illustrated! As for those muffins, they look absolutely delicious, and perfect for Halloween. Enjoy some Halloween fun tonight,

    October 31, 2015
    • Thanks Millie, had a wonderful night tonight. So much fun got some photo’s I will post later.

      October 31, 2015
      • Oh goody! I love to see people’s photos. Nothing much happens over here on Halloween – not like it does in the US. We have a few youngsters doing trick or treat, the little ones with their parents, but that’s about it. Some of local places hold Halloween parties but nothing on a grand scale. So, please do post some nice photos! I’ll look out for them.

        November 1, 2015
  12. Happy Halloween, Suzanne! I’m taking a little break from handing out candy. It’s after 8 and they’re still coming! And my own daughter still hanging out with her group of friends. But, these muffins!! Will make!! Hopefully tomorrow. Omg, they sound so good! XOXO

    October 31, 2015
    • I ran out of candy after 10 minutes, I am hiding in the back of the house no lights in the front since there is no more candy to give out. Thanks so much Angie.

      October 31, 2015
      • Hahaha…what, were you giving by the handful? 2 pieces that’s all I give! It reminds me of my earlier years in this neighborhood (400+ homes in the development) and I started giving out nickels, then dimes, then quarters when we ran out of candy, before finally turning off the lights and ignoring doorbell rings πŸ˜€

        October 31, 2015
      • 2 pieces thats all I gave each child. I bought one of those huge bags of assorted candies (ok some of it was eaten before Halloween_ but still it was a lot of candy. There were so many kids, I couldn’t give it out fast enough. It was literally gone in a blink. Hey that would be a good way to get rid of change. LOL.Happy Halloween.

        October 31, 2015
  13. Is that quite novel rolling muffins in butter and sugar? Sounds a great idea! Oh, I made the pumpkin dessert, using a variation of the cheesecake base, earlier tonight. Hmm, taste delicious. Shame I’m so late!
    Happy Hallowe’en!

    October 31, 2015
    • Are you going to post the pumpkin dessert? I love pumpkin and would love something different this Thanksgiving.Thanks so much Johnny.

      October 31, 2015
      • If I get photos tomorrow I’ll post it. Actually, it would be good for Thanksgiving. Don’t know why I thought it only suitable for Hallowe’en.

        October 31, 2015
      • I am searching for recipes now for Thanksgiving. I always introduce something new and this will be it this year.

        October 31, 2015
  14. I hope you had a some good Halloween fun. The muffins look fantastic and the pug carved pumpkin is darling. I think of you every time I see a pug. Hugs!

    October 31, 2015
    • Thank you so much Gerlinde, isn’t that pumpkin great. Wish I could do that, it’s an art form.

      October 31, 2015
  15. Happy Halloween, Suzanne. Love the texture of the muffins, so moist and very yummy! πŸ™‚

    November 1, 2015
  16. Happy Halloween, Suzanne. I haven’t got time to make anything for this year. Shame! I love pumpkin spice latte as well. So your recipe can fit in my to-do- list for later. You’re so clever to add some coffee into the muffins, I love it so much. Thanks

    November 1, 2015
    • Mochi, thank you very much. I had my first pumpkin spice latte this year and love it. I am usually not big on flavored coffee but like this one. Have a great day.

      November 1, 2015
  17. We love donut holes and I need a pumpkin recipe for them. The pumpkin carving is just adorable – did you carve that? We (a sister and I) tried to dress up her puppy but he was not interested in being a pirate!!! Halloween is all about fun – hope you enjoyed your evening – we did handing out candy (actually packages of goldfish) πŸ™‚

    November 1, 2015
    • Thank you so much Judi, you handed out goldfish rather than candy, good for you. Much healthier than all that sugar, Thank you so much and no I didn’t carve that pumpkin, wish I were that talented.

      November 1, 2015
  18. Oh wow, would you look at these yummy and delicious treats. I’d be afraid of eating the entire batch myself Suzanne, they look just wonderful. Look at those real cute pug pictures too, just adorable!

    November 1, 2015
    • Aren’t those pugs too cute. Love them!! Thanks so much Loretta. I had to get those muffins out of my house, gave them away. I could easily have polished off most of them with a big mug of hot coffee. Thanks so much.

      November 1, 2015
  19. Oh I love the pug-o-lantern!

    November 2, 2015

  23. Yummy doughnuts and love all your clicks…

    November 2, 2015
  24. These look amazing, Suzanne! I really like the spin you put on it with the pumpkin and coffee flavors. My mom used to make muffin doughnuts when I was young. We always loved them! I want to try making your recipe!

    November 2, 2015
    • I love the doughnut muffins. they are moist and cake like, dangerous really. LOL, thanks so much Shari.

    What a wonderful idea for a doughnut, Suzanne! I’m not very experimental when it comes to doughnuts, but I do love them! (I think I have 4 or 5 recipes on my site!) These are perfect for autumn, and it finally arrived here today!!! First cool day in MONTHS!

    November 4, 2015
    • I have saved several of your doughnut recipes Christina, still have the beautiful photo of your glazed raised doughnuts embedded in my brain. Thank you so much. Yesterday it was summerlike in NYC, turned off the heat and opened the windows. This time of year the temps are up and down.

      November 4, 2015
      • CC #

        Oh that’s so sweet! Thank you! It’s so funny because it seems like our temps traded coast to coast! I FINALLY am getting a new oven (either today or tomorrow delivery)! I’ve been without one for 5 months, if you can believe it. Not too bad as I was travelling for 6 weeks and it’s just been TOO hot to turn on any oven! I’m excited to start baking now, though! πŸ™‚

        November 4, 2015
  26. What a beautiful post and loved the donuts it’s treat for eyes dearie Suzanne πŸ˜™

    November 4, 2015
  27. I have had Pumpkin Spice Latte and I really do like them. And, you put them in a doughnut muffin form… Yahoo! Forget about diet! πŸ˜€ )))

    November 4, 2015
    • I had one for the first time a few weeks ago and thought it was delicious. It really does taste nice in a doughnut muffin. I only ate one and gave the rest away, quality control you see.

      November 4, 2015
  28. These are making me so hungry right now! They look delicious!!

    November 4, 2015
  29. The pug pumpkin is awesome Suzanne!! Someone is an artist!

    November 4, 2015
    • Yes for sure someone is, wish it were me. Thanks Rhonda. I would love to learn that technique.

      November 5, 2015
  30. Oh, gosh the muffins sound delish, but I think the I pug steals the show, here! πŸ™‚ I hope we’ll hear soon that your heart has mended enough to share with another pugsy!

    November 5, 2015
    • Thank you so much, I know right, that pug pumpkin is the best. I hope one day soon to have another pug, right now it’s still so painful. Thank you :o)

      November 6, 2015
  31. These look heavenly! Pumpkin makes dessert recipes so moist, hard to go wrong! What an adorable costume πŸ™‚

    November 22, 2015
