"These tasted really good and were relatively easy to make. Though I used a lot of bowls so there was quite a bit of clean up. I also used a hand mixer to mix the cream cheese filling to try and get it creamier and easier to spread. Also it wasn't clear what a "small amount" of cream cheese mixture was and I will use more next time as I had some left.

Though they sprang back on top, as per the directions at 23 minutes, the top was not really cooked all the way. My oven tends to take the maximum on things so next time will cook them longer."

1/2 c Vegetable oil
1 c Pumpkin

I added Pumpkin pie spice to the batter. Next time, I'll put the cream cheese in a decorator's bag and pipe it into the muffin tins. Also, I'll use less batter at the bottom (just enough to cover the bottom) and save more for the top. My 4 year old LO helped mix the batter, and assemble these. She loved adding the crumble to the top.

Added pumpkin seeds on top before putting them in the oven and came out great!! These top the cream cheese pumpkin muffins from Starbucks!! A new favorite!!

These tasted delicious, but the texture came out really bizarre. I feel like I did everything exactly as the recipe said too, but they just didn't turn out like I expected. The batter was very thick and once cooked the muffins sunk in really bad. They tasted great though, so perhaps I will try this recipe again?

Filling was very thin, prefer it without. Over all it was good, very moist.

Healthy changes - decrease sugar to 1/2 cup, substitite 1.5 cups of flour with oatmeal. Now you have a nutricious muffin and not a cupcake.

I tried these, they were ok. I like stuff on the sweeter side and thy weren't very sweet. Still pretty good though.

The cream cheese mixture was very hard to put in the middle. Might try it as a loaf next time.

I made this as a bread instead of muffins because it's easier to layer. Turned out great, I will definitely make it again!

Yummy. I think it needs just a little cinnamon for a little more flavor but other then that, did really like them. Husband liked them even more. :)
