PUMP(kin) it Up take two…

We all know that I love Pinterest. I still to this day thank/curse Kristen(Dine and Dish)for introducing it to me. While it might be a time suck it is a constant source of inspiration of all things not just baking/cooking. I almost (and I use that term loosely) want to clean and organize after I am on Pinterest…almost. :P I also love it of course because it brings people to my site and I always love gaining new readers!

One thing I am always interested in on Pinterest is what things do I bake/make are popular on Pinterest and it usually surprises me…big time. One thing were these muffins. Now these are not like a Way Back Wednesday, these are like a redo Tuesday. :) So many people had been pinning them that I decided to remake them…as these bad boys were originally posted six years ago…yep…SIX! They say that they average blog reader only stays with a blog about a year and a half. I know that I have some long time readers but I have to remember that the majority of you are someone new to me and that they have missed out on some great recipes over the years. And if you are new to me feel free to comment and say so…Joy (Joy the Baker) wrote a great post the other day about comments. I feel the same way that she does.

After making these (with help) I can see why they are so popular. I forgot how yummy they are. You don’t have to use white chocolate chips, I have actually made them with milk chocolate as well, but there is just something about the white chips with this particular recipe that make it work.

So whether you are a new reader (welcome), long time reader (thank you), or a really, really long time reader (double thank you with a cherry on top) you should probably give these a try. And if you already did give them a try you might want to again. I can’t believe I haven’t made these for so long! The one curse of running a blog, always trying to come up with something new you forget how awesome some of the old was. :D

  1. I teach college students, and when they’re good I bake for them. These muffins are the first thing I make every semester and they win my students over–they know that if they turn things in and behave, I’ll bake more.
    I love these muffins so much!

  2. I made your chocolate mint pound cake last night and it was very tasty! Unfortunately our French exchange student does not like mint, wait that means more for me. We will have to make these muffins and see if she likes pumpkin. Thanks for the recipes!

  3. This is great timing! I’m hosting a book club (that meets in the morning – don’t even get me started on the fact that it’s not a good time to drink a beer!) and I was planning on making some type of pumpkin muffins! I think these will be perfect!

    Your blog was the VERY first blog I started reading. I came upon your site without even knowing what a blog was. I still remember I was dog sitting and I spent hours just clicking through every single one of your posts. Lol. I even posted a link on Facebook about your blog because I was so excited to find so many good recipes:) Needless to say I am now blog obsessed and I have you to thank:) I still love looking at your recipes and pictures. They make me drool. haha These muffins look amazing. I have been lighting pumpkin candles around my house this whole week because I want it to be fall so bad. I guess I should make these too:)

  5. That post from Joy the Baker was so incredibly sweet! Just wanted to say thank you for always having such warm and sincere/quirky and funny posts on your blog. It’s really a pleasure to read. And I don’t even like pumpkin, but these look good!

  6. Wonderful muffins! I love the addition of white chocolate chips.



  7. I made these six years ago and brought them to my SIL’s house for Thanksgiving breakfast! I haven’t made them since. I should totally make them again…when the weather here cools down. San Diego is bad at transitioning to fall when I want it to.

  8. long long time reader. You’re welcome.

    YUM. I love Pumpkin Season. Can’t wait to make these.. I made your pumpkin gingerbread bars last year and they were like CRACK. I don’t think I can make those again until I’ve lost at least 50 pounds!

  9. Just to make you happy…. :-)
    Long time reader. We DB’d together (I was in right after you, croissants, 7 of us over 3 days!). Rarely comment, but do keep reading.
    I’m about to go into pumpkin mode with my second job, where I will spend the month of October baking, baking and baking. Not sure I’m quite ready to jump the gun and start making something pumpkin just yet….

  10. Pumpkin and white chocolate are such a great combo! I need to try these!

  11. One of my favorite recipes of yours. They are one of my go to recipes, especially if I need something to give away as a thank you. I always make them with the white chocolate chips.

  12. I have butterscotch chips…..has anyone tried these muffins with butterscotch chips??? I could make them RIGHT NOW…..not that I need to…..or maybe I should just wait until I dig up white chocolate….. WAIT!!! I have white chocolate BARS!!! Duh, me……chopping white chocolate bars and making these TODAY!!!

  13. Put me in the long-time reader category. I agree with you and Joy about comments. It’s so nice to hear from the awesome people who take time to read our blogs!

  14. Oh wow! Oh my! I was just thinking about pumpkin last night. It must be a sign that I need to make this.

  15. I was thinking about this basic concept the other day too. I have so many recipes on my blog that I love, but they were posted so long ago that I wonder if my readers ever go back and read them. I’m a long time reader of your blog, and believe me, I’ve spent a lot of time reading your past recipes and stories. This muffin looks perfect for the fall weather approaching this weekend!

    I originally found you on the Nest, when someone posted a question about the blog with the outstanding food pictures. Yours was the first blog that I started following and have been doing so for many many years! I have even made the refund muffins – untested, for a party no less – and have yet to have a recipe of yours fail me! I do search the archives when I need something special – you always come through! Thank you for all the inspiration! Audra in Flagstaff

  17. I made muffins like these from you before but I thought that I had replaced butterscotch chips with the white chocolate ones that I had on hand. I guess that I was unknowingly making these. As fall comes around they will definitely be making another appearance.

  18. Oh my gosh I can’t wait to try these come October! They look so scrumptious. And I’m definitely trying them with milk chocolate chips. Chocolate (any other than white) and pumpkin are so perfect together!

  19. Thank YOU for taking the time to express yourself and share. I feel like I know you. Hope your ankle is feeling better

  20. …and I will forever thank/curse you for introducing me to Pinterest through one of your blog posts!

    I remember the day I first found your blog. I clicked through pages and pages of entries and wasted hours at work one day. I was hooked then and have been enjoying your site ever since.

    I hope your leg feels a little better each and every day!

  21. I’ve been reading for about a year. While I do like your recipes, I follow mostly because of your stories – you’re a great storyteller! Thanks for all you do.

  22. I am new here and love your blog.. i ran across this recipe today and HAD to make these this very second. I had to make a few substitutions, I used vanilla extract for the paste, allspice for the ginger and whole wheat flour for regular. Let me tell ya, I LOVE them:) And with the whole wheat it doesn’t feel so sinful!

  23. Long time reader, rare commenter, but I had to come back to this post and thank you for the recipe. I am 36 weeks pregnant in Southern California where we are having a blasted heat wave and all I want is pumpkin and the MidWest fall weather I grew up with. I just made these muffins today despite the heat, and they are SOOOOO worth the added heat in my AC-less apartment. They brought a little fall to my kitchen, and have totally scratched the pumpkin craving I am having. So, thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou!!!!!

  24. I’ve been reading your blog for a while, at least a year, but this is the first recipe of yours I’ve baked. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips because I didn’t have white, but I’ll be trying it with white chips, too. These came out great – tender, moist and delicious. Looking forward to trying more of your recipes! :)

  25. Count me as one of those long long time readers. Chances are I’ve already got this bookmarked, but who cares, I’m saving it again!

  26. I bookmarked this recipe when you posted it about a month ago, and finally got around to making it last night. Let me tell you- my boyfriend now thinks I am the most amazing baker ever to exist. I will forever be in debt to you and your recipe. They are the best! I know I will be forever searching for him to respond to any new recipe the way he responded to these. I am a new reader- but I am hooked now :)

  27. @Lindsay- glad he liked them!

  28. The very best muffins ever…and so easy! I linked you from my blog because I was dying at how good they are!

  29. jducklips says:

    I have been looking for a recipe for these muffins for awhile. I have tried a few and none of them have been this amazing! I get some white chocolate chip pumpkin muffins at my local coffee shop and they are to die for. For some reason this season they do not have them and so I have been trying to make them at home. This recipe is so amazing it might just be better than the ones I have at the coffee shop. Try this recipe, they are so yummy!!! They go amazing with come Chai in the morning. YUMM

  30. Made these in mini muffins for a MOPs meeting- they were a huge hit! Baked them for 17 mins in the mini muffin pan. Can’t wait to have an excuse to make them again!

  31. A couple questions from this inexperienced baker…..do I have to include the walnuts? What is vanilla paste? Can I substitute with vanilla? What would the equivalency be? I am hoping to make these this week. If someone can email me back directly that would be awesome. (danah@livinglifeopen.com)

  32. @Dana- no you do not have to include the walnuts. Vanilla paste LorAnn Extracts, Natural Madagascar Vanilla Bean Paste, 4-Ounce Bottle (Pack of 3)
    If using vanilla extract you will want to use a little less.

  33. i love these! we made them and used half the butter and added in some applesauce. OH MY. they are so VERY good. will be making again! thank you!

  34. I have made these twice now and both times they have come out a little sticky… I’m following the recipe very closely but they still come out sticky. Any suggestions?

  35. Maybe add more flour
