Pumpkin Cheddar Muffins - Club Baked

When I saw this week's Baked recipe was for Pumpkin Cheddar Muffins I was curious. Would these be delicious or not so good? I first experienced savory muffins when baking along with Sweet Melissa Sunday's. After baking these Carmelized Onion, Sage and Cheddar Muffins, I decided I loved savory muffins almost as much as sweet ones.

The batter for these Pumpkin Cheddar Muffins is quite thick and at least for me, these didn't rise very much. I filled the muffin tins almost to the top and they rose just over the top. I made these for Sunday dinner a couple of weeks ago. My step son, Mike joined us for dinner. I wondered if he'd like the muffins or think they were gross, as only a teenager could express. Guess what, he loved them and so did we! These would be delicious with any fall or winter soup.



Thanks to Billie of Chocolate and Chakra for choosing this recipe. This one is a keeper!! You can find the recipe on her site. Check out what the other Club Baked bakers thought here!

  3. Glad you liked them! I was too scared to try the cheese version and made mine sweet, but I think I'll try this recipe again soon the original way!
