Cornish Toffee Honeycomb Pumpkin Muffins
‘Tis the season for every kind of pumpkin flavoured treat to make an appearance. Great news for everyone but is there really a recipe worth sharing that hasn’t been done before??
I’ve thought long and hard as I love bringing you things new and fresh. Here is the result. Moist and flavourful pumpkin muffins with Cornish toffee and sprinkled with honeycomb pieces. I’ve never baked anything with honeycomb before but when I saw it at a shop I was immediately inspired. Growing up, the only way I ever ate pumpkin was pumpkin roasted with honey. Naturally, combining pumpkin and honey in a muffin just screamed childhood to me! Then I added caramel flavoured toffee…just for fun. Can you see all the toffee bits in there?

I didn’t know what to expect but what I got was a crackled muffin top because honeycomb melted and seeped into the muffins and toffee studded bottom!Cornish Toffee Honeycomb Pumpkin Muffins

  1. I can’t even explain to you how excited I got when I saw this recipe on pinterest. This is quite literally all my favorite things rolled into one! Just went through your blog and pinned basically all of it lol. Can’t wait to make these!

  2. I love toffee! I always thought toffee was a purely British thing. So, living in London, you must have access to the best of the best of toffee! So jealous. Combining it with pumpkin in a muffin sounds so delicious! Pinned!
