Double Pumpkin Chip Muffin & Spice Muffins with Maple Cinnamon Frosting

so i made a multitude of muffins today- Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins & Spice Muffins with Maple Cinnamon Frosting. i actually "messed up" on the spice muffin & forgot what would seem to be a key ingredient- the SUGAR!!! however- there is also 1 cup of Brown Sugar in the recipe as well- and as it turns out, leaving out the white sugar TOTALLY WORKS because the maple frosting gives this "muffin" plenty of sweetness! so all in all, if you're going to make the spice muffins with the frosting, then leave out the 1 cup of white sugar. if you want to eliminate the frosting, then add the 1 cup of white sugar. genius! (i also left out the ginger but i don't think you'd know wither way)

Spice Muffins with Maple Cinnamon Frosting:

Ingredients
2 1/4 C. flour
1/4 C. cornstarch
1 C. granulated sugar (optional- use it if you're not going with the frosting- omit if vice versa)
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ginger (i omited)
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 C. butter, softened
1 C. brown sugar, packed
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 C. buttermilk
3 eggs
Frosting:
1 Tbs. maple syrup
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 C. butter , softened
1/3 C. milk
3 C. powdered sugar

Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Line 2 muffins pans with liners. In a large mixing bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients. In a separate bowl, cream butter and brown sugar.

Double Pumpkin Chip Muffins:

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp sea salt (or regular)
