How to make pumpkin bread into muffins:
If you don’t have a loaf pan, or you are taking your bread to a party, you could also make them into muffins.
The best part is, you don’t even have to line the muffin tin with cupcake liners, instead, you could grease the pan with non-stick cooking spray.
If you would like to use cupcake liners for decoration that is also an option. I used Halloween cupcake liners when I made these for a Halloween party.
To make them in a muffin tin, spritz each muffin tin hole with non stick cooking spray. Add 1/4 or 1/3 cup of batter to the hole.
Bake for about 20-22 minutes at 350 degrees.
