Cheesecake Pumpkin Muffins Recipe

My mother-in-law came up with these tender treats by combining a few of her favorite muffin recipes. Chock-full of pumpkin, they feature both a sweet cream cheese filling and crunchy praline topping. —Lisa Powelson, Scott City, Kansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1-1/2 cups canola oil
  • CREAM CHEESE FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • PRALINE TOPPING:
  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, pumpkin and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups one-third full.
  • 2. For filling, beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg and flour until smooth. Drop by tablespoonfuls into center of each muffin. Top with remaining batter.
  • 3. For topping, in a small bowl, combine the pecans, brown sugar and sour cream; spoon over batter. Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2 dozen.

"Sorry. This was the worst pumpkin recipe I have ever made. The baking soda amount was over the top and the pumpkin muffin tasted like baking soda. It was awful. This recipe needs to be deleted. O stars. Just awful. Do not make."

"Absolutely terrific recipe. I made these for the crew I work with and the men came back asking for the recipe. Nice texture, the cream cheese filling stays soft even the muffins are cool, and the praline topping is terrific. I doubled it the second time I made the recipe for even more crunch and flavor."
