We here at the Pink Puck aren’t ashamed to tell you that we love pumpkin the way we love hockey. If it was socially acceptable, we would eat it 365 days a year. These pumpkin spice muffins are a fantastic breakfast option. We recently baked them the night before, then warmed them the following morning, threw them in foil and surprised the team at the rink before hitting the ice – it was a well received treat. Surprise your family, share with friends or keep them all to yourself, we bring you, Pumpkin Spice Muffins.

Pumpkin Spice Muffins
Makes approximately 24 muffins


  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup canned plain pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk (can also substitute with Almond or Coconut Milk)
  • 2 Tbsp Pumpkin Butter (We buy this at Trader Joes in bulk during “pumpkin season”, it has so many uses!)
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 24 muffin cups baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, with a hand mixer, mix all ingredients with the exception of 1/3 cup sugar, 1 Tbsp cinnamon and 1 Tbsp melted butter.
  3. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  4. While the muffins cool, put the melted butter in one bowl and mix the sugar and cinnamon in another. When the muffins are slightly cooled, but still warm, using a pastry brush, lightly brush the tops of each muffin with a tiny bit of melted butter, then sprinkle the muffin with cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Winter was hooked on hockey by age 6, when she first witnessed a bench clearing brawl between the Boston Bruins and the Ottawa Senators. Growing from hockey fan to hockey player, Winter followed her passions by founding The Pink Puck. While she also loves fashion and the outdoors, hockey will always be her center ice.
