Pumpkin Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel Crumb Topping

Today I am presenting at the Deseret New Fall Home Show. I will be making these muffins and the pumpkin chili that I just posted today as well. To say I am a little bit nervous might be an understatement. I’m a lotta bit nervous. But I can brag about the two food recipes I am making because I know they are seriously delicious. And we’ll hope that’s all they really care about anyway.

I’ve never done something like this, so it will be a completely new experience for me, but maybe it will give me the courage to do this type of thing and teach others how to make delicious food with me more often. And maybe I’ll do a vlog or two on this ol blog, cause maybe that would be helpful for you to see me make the food sometimes too.

Anyway, these pumpkin muffins are superb. They have just a little bit of a pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg flavor. The muffins are nice and light and airy. And the cinnamon streusel crumb topping is really delicious too. I love crumb topping on anything and everything. And then there’s a powdered sugar frosting that you can or don’t have to drizzle on top, but it just gives the muffins a little bit more sweetness and deliciousness and they are really good with it or with it out, so you can choose. Oh and you can also choose to add walnuts into the mixture to give the muffins a little more texture if you’d like.

    I made these and OMGosh THANK YOU! So, so good. Only thing that didn’t turn out right was using the 1/4 cup per muffin…. made them too big so I had to increase bake time. But SOOO worth it!

  2. Made exactly as written and these were AMAZING! The topping is a true crumb topping and I Loved it! I made these for breakfast for tomorrow and they are already gone. Guess we’ll just have cereal tomorrow.

    1. So glad you liked it Chris, isn’t the crumb topping delicious!?

      1. OMG.. delicious isn’t even the right word! I’ve tried other types of crumb toppings but it usually turned into melted sugar on top of the muffins. These were PERFECT and there was plenty to go on each muffin!!! My son just moved out and he stopped by right when I was trying this recipe and he devoured one while it was still hot and then took 2 for the road. I tried one warm but honestly loved it when it was cool and the spices had a chance to stand out and the crumb topping and glaze got a little harder… OMG it’s DELISH! I’m gonna have to make these again this weekend! :)

  3. This looks so good – good luck at the home show!

  4. These look DELICIOUS!!! I want to make them! PINNING!
