September is here, and today I bring you my second pumpkin recipe for this autumn so far. I bring you my incredibly moist Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins! These spiced pumpkin muffins have a layer of cheesecake in the centres and are sprinkled with a cinnamon streusel.

If you’ve made any of my muffin recipes, you’ll know how quick and easy these are to throw together. Simply whisk all the wet ingredients together, then add and fold in the dry ingredients – no mixer required! The cream cheese mixture is also very simple to make, along with the cinnamon streusel. I like to make them two mixtures first before the muffins, so they’re ready to use as soon as I’ve prepared the muffin batter.

These muffins are so moist and full of flavour. Those autumn flavours I just love! The cream cheese centre adds a delicious softness, and the cinnamon streusel adds a slight crunch which complements these muffins wonderfully.

    Streusel is seriously my favorite part of muffins, so any muffin with one has me sold! Perfect for the cooler, fall weather 🙂
