These "cupcakes" are actually muffins, but that's nothing a little cream cheese frosting can't fix!

Just finished making these "cupcakes" and the house smells delicious! Great way to kick start the Fall. They are really yummy! They aren't too sweet, which is great. We aren't too big on frosting at our house so I didn't make the frosting. They are simple and super fast to make. I can't wait to have one in the morning with my cup of coffee!!
