Why Starbucks pumpkin muffins are delicious

It's true that Starbucks Pumpkin Muffins are delicious.

But it's not because they're made with pumpkin and spices or anything like that. I mean that is no secret. They're just as moist and flavorful as other muffins, but the secret is in how they're baked: for a shorter time at a lower temperature so the muffin stays light and tender on the inside, while being browned on top from caramelized sugar. And this gives them their deliciously crispy crust. It all makes for one perfect fall treat!

What do you think the secret is to making good copycat Starbucks pumpkin muffins?

The secret to making perfect Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Muffins is not only the temperature at which they are baked but also how long they are baked for. As mentioned before, baking them for less time at a lower temperature will keep them moist and tender on the inside while giving them their trademark crispy outside crust. And this means that it's crucial not to over-bake them!

It might seem like common sense that one would want the muffin to be well-done since that's where it gets its crunchiness from… But if these muffins are overcooked, then they lose all of their moisture and become crumbly. And nobody wants to eat a crumbly muffin! So the trick is to make sure these are cooked enough, but not too much!

Why are Starbucks pumpkin muffins are so good?

The reason that Starbucks Pumpkin Muffins are so good is because of the way they're baked. They have a crispy crust on the outside, but they stay moist and tender on the inside instead of being dry like most muffins. This gives them their signature texture! And every time I bite into one of these delicious treats, it's never anything less than perfect!

How you would customize Starbucks pumpkin muffins to fit your own lifestyle?

I'd love to customize my Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Muffins by adding even more pumpkin and spices. I'm thinking of maybe adding a few more teaspoons of cinnamon and nutmeg as well as some ginger powder since those flavors give pumpkin pie its classic taste. These will definitely make the recipe for this fall treat even more seasonal, which is what it's all about! It also means more yummy fall flavors… In one single little muffin!

Making Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Muffins isn't hard. You just need to take your time and follow all of the steps I mentioned here!
