Have you tried the Starbuck’s version of this muffin?? If not, no need to because this is the homemade version and may even be a little tastier, hehe!

For the past few years, I heard several people talking about how amazing Starbuck’s pumpkin muffins were. Well, each time I went, I left with a pumpkin spice latte, but somehow forgot to try the muffin.



  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted/cooled
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg


  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin tray with liners or cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin spice.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the pumpkin, melted butter, vanilla extract, and egg.
  4. Combine the wet mixture with the dry mixture and stir until just combined.
  5. Fill muffin liners with batter about 3/4 full.
  6. To make cream cheese filling: Place all ingredients into a bowl and combine.
  7. Using a piping bag or Ziploc bag with corner tip cut off, add a dollop of cream cheese mixture to the muffin cups. *It will sink slightly into batter.
  8. Place muffin tray into preheated oven to bake for about 18-20 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool 2-3 minutes before removing from tray.
  10. Enjoy!
