Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins

Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins

I saw this recipe several years ago and have wanted to make them for some time. Tonight, we had my in-laws over for dinner and decided to finally make them. I had some pumpkin left over from another recipe so I had all of the ingredients or at least I thought. Except I had no buttermilk or even milk. I did have heavy cream so that's what I used. Everything else you probably have in your pantry.

I made them in my square pan and they turned out great. Light and fluffy. They were a hit with everyone. My father-in-law wanted to take some home for breakfast. 

They said to let them rest for a few minutes, but I took them out of the pan while still quite hot. So yummy. The butter just melted all over them.

As usual, I have to get a couple of pictures before they are gone. So if you have some pumpkin left over, give these muffins a try, they will not disappoint.
