Description

These will make your kitchen smell like the holidays. The muffins are moist, flavorful, and have a good crunch from the streusel nut topping.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 cup Canned Pumpkin
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ⅓ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 2  Eggs (large)
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Or Apple Pie Spice
  • 1-¼ cup Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • FOR THE STREUSEL:
  • ¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2-½ Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • ⅛ cups Pecans Or Walnuts, Chopped
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Butter, Softened

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 12 muffin tim with liners.
2. Combine the flour and baking powder.
3. Combine the pumpkin, vanilla, oil, eggs, pie spice, sugar, baking soda, and salt until smooth.
4. Slowly whisk the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full (I use a ice cream scoop). Sprinkle streusel over each muffin (see instructions below).
5. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean.
6. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then transfer the muffins from the pan to rack and cool completely.

For the streusel topping:
1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, nuts, pie spice (or cinnamon), and butter.
2. I use a tablespoon measure to distrubute the streusel on each muffin.
