Pumpkin Pudding Muffins

I was trying to find something different to make with pumpkin in and came across pumpkin pudding muffins by something swanky. This recipe had jell-o powder in, I'm not sure if you can get jell-o powder in england but I'm going to assume you can't because I'd probably be traipsing round the whole country looking for it; which I don't really fancy doing. I still couldn't resist trying to make these so I looked up a recipe for jell-o pudding mix and found one by Brown eyed Baker.

Although I can't compare these make your own to the bought jell-o powder kind these muffins were so yummy, they literally taste like autumn in your mouth. I may just have to start making these every year.

For the muffins
240 ml milk (1 cup)
60 ml vegetable oil (1/4 cup)
1 egg
130g pumpkin puree (1/2 cup)
280g plain flour (2 cups)
110g sugar (1/2 cup)
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice

If you're making your own pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground ginger
3/8 tsp nutmeg
3/8 tsp allspice/cloves

For the jell-o pudding mix
85g granulated sugar (1/3 cup)
25g cornflour/cornstarch (1/4 cup)
25g skimmed milk powder (1/4 cup)
1/3 tsp salt

For the muffin topping
1-2 tbsp melted butter
2-3 tbsp sugar
2-3 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the over to 200C/400F/Gas mark 6 and line or grease a muffin tray.
In a bowl mix together the ingredients for the jell-o pudding mix and set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together the milk, oil, egg and pumpkin puree. Mix in the flour, homemade pudding mix, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice/spices and salt until a batter forms.
divide the batter into the muffin tray, makes 12-14
Bake in a preheated oven for 14-18 minutes, I made 14 and it took about 14 minutes, if you're making 12 they may need to be in there for 18-20 minutes
Allow muffins to cool slightly then melt the butter and mix the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Dip/brush the tops with the melted butter and dip the in cinnamon sugar.


  1. These look SO GOOD. I can't wait to try them as soon as I get can some pumpkin. Or maybe I'll try with sweet potato?

    1. If you try them with sweet potato you'll have to tell me how they are, I'm sure they'll be tasty though because the sweet potato cupcakes were really nice (:

  2. OMG THANK YOU. I am definitely going to try this! I saw the original on Something Swanky and was really disappointed that it required a limited edition Jello flavour (and those tend to only exist in the US).

  3. Bless you, Rachel :) I saw the something swanky recipe and (being Aussie) was stumped first at "Jell-O pudding mix", and again at "pumpkin pie spice" - and here you've solved them both! I can't wait to have a crack at these! Cheers!
