Fall is coming, it will be here soon. I keep telling myself that bnterut the temperatures outside convince me it will be awhile yet. It may not be quite Fall yet, but I can start making Fall recipes that include all things pumpkin. This pumpkin muffin is amazing. One bite and I was not even thinking about the fact that summer is still here. The flavors of pumpkin pie with a pecan-crumb topping make this muffin irresistible and will be the perfect to partner with your morning coffee, tea, or just enjoy the muffin any time of the day or night.
