Pumpkin Muffins with Crumb Topping

One of the most amazing flavors of the season is pumpkin.  

And these pumpkin muffins I am sharing with you today are loaded with flavor.

They have a crumb topping which makes them a little extra special.    


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 cups sugar
  • One can pure pumpkin
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water or orange juice
Crumb Topping:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 2 TBSP oatmeal
Combine the Crumb Topping ingredients in a bowl and using a pastry cutter, or two knives, and cut the butter into the mixture until you have crumbs; set aside.
Combine the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt in large bowl and set aside. 
Combine sugar, pumpkin, eggs, oil and juice in large mixer bowl; beat until just blended. 
Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture; stir just until moistened. 
Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling 3/4 full.
Add one tablespoon of the crumb topping to the top of each muffin.
Bake at 350 for about 20 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
Depending on the size of your muffin pans, you should get 24 muffins.
