Wanted to view pumpkin donuts, but the link does not work. What’s up?
Hi Mary! The link should be working for the pumpkin donuts.
The link worked fine for me today. Can this recipe be baked as a loaf instead of muffins? Thanks,
Hi Anne, while we love a good loaf, unfortunately this recipe hasn’t been tested as loaf so we can’t get a definite yes.
The instructions included with the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins is incorrect just as Karen stated . The link does take one to the correct recipe , but the instructions are for a cookie recipe not these muffins .
Hello, thank you! The link should be directing to the recipe instructions for The pumpkin cream cheese muffins.
I wanted to try the pumpkin cream cheese muffins. But when I went to it the instructions were for some type of candy.
Hi Karen, It looks like the pumpkin cream cheese muffins are directing to the correct recipe on Wilton.com
