Candace’s Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Muffins!

Another pumpkin treat!

Candace invited us over for dinner Sunday evening. She made Chicken Gumbo, Mama’s Jalapeño Cornbread, and these pumpkin muffins–Candace’s Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Muffins. All the food was wonderful, especially these pumpkin muffins! She had me bring a Chocolate Pie (which I will blog later) for dessert. I said, “OK, as long as you let me blog your muffins!” DEAL!!!

Last week I made Pumpkin Cranberry Pecan Muffins and took to her house. This week she treated us to hers! While both are perfect muffins for fall, mine didn’t have a topping or glaze, while Candace’s had BOTH a topping AND a glaze!

Making Candace’s Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Muffins . .

It surprised me that Candace made pumpkin muffins because generally she’s not much of a fan of pumpkin. But these muffins were SO good, even she liked them! LOL!!!

She took pictures of the process so I could share her muffins with you. There were a few changes made:

  • 1 tablespoon of milk added
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla added in the muffins
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla substituted for maple syrup in the glaze

The pumpkin muffins were perfectly moist and delicious, and the streusel topping, drizzled with the glaze, was divine!

The muffin ingredients were mixed together with her KitchenAid mixer.

Then the batter was scooped into paper liners in the muffin tins.

Next the Streusel Topping was mixed together and spooned onto the batter in the muffin tins, then baked.

These Streusel-Topped Pumpkin muffins were good enough to eat when they came out of the oven, but they were not finished yet! The drizzle was added to finish off these delicious pumpkin treats! They were almost indescribably delicious! A little sweet subtle crunch in every bite! I took some home and froze them for Mama:) They freeze beautifully . . . another reason to make these harvest season muffins:)

Which would you prefer? Glaze or NO Glaze on your Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Muffins?

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare muffin tin by either spraying with non-stick cooking spray or using paper liners. You may need to prepare two muffin tins.

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt together. Set aside.

  3. In a mixing bowl, mix oil, sugar, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, eggs, milk and vanilla together. 

  4. Gently add the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture, stirring just until the ingredients are combined.

  5. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tins, as evenly as possible. Batter needs to be almost to the top. Set aside.

Make the Streusel Topping:

  1. Whisk all ingredients together–EXCEPT butter–until combined.

  2. Add melted butter and stir until the mixture feels like crumbs.

  3. Spoon the streusel-topping on top of the pumpkin batter in the muffin tins. Press down slightly.

  4. Baked at 425 degrees for 5 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees and bake an additional 16-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

  5. Remove muffins from the oven and set aside for 10 minutes or so while you make the Glaze.

Make the Glaze:

  1. Mix all the glaze ingredients together until creamy and the consistency you want. Add a little more milk if the glaze is too thick. 

  2. Finish muffins by drizzling the glaze over the muffins.
