 Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Streusel Topping - Marty's Musings

I have been away all weekend on a scrapbooking retreat, but I wanted to share the recipe for Pumpkin Muffins that I make every fall. 

Every time I make these muffins someone asks for the recipe. In honor of the sweet ladies that make it so much fun to get away and recharge, here it is!

They are super easy to make and were gobbled up by my ladies group!

I first saw this recipe on Christy Jordan’s Southern Plate blog. She is a cook after my own heart with her southern sensibilities!

Her book Southern Plate: Classic Comfort Food That Makes Everyone Feel Like Family is a must read for easy recipes that evoke warm memories of heart and home.

    I made your pumpkin muffin recipe, and it’s delicious!!! I added some pecans to the streusel topping. Nuts always make everything good even better!!! 🙂
    I have often used a similar recipe to make pumpkin cookies. One box spice cake mix + one can pumpkin stir together and drop by spoonfuls on to a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Optional I have added pecans and or raisins. A great healthy fall treat.
    I really enjoy reading your blog! Thank you

    Just made these, in the oven now. I got 19 muffins out of it. Did you feel yours to the top or 3/4 full? And my streusel wasn’t crumbly. It was creamy. I did the exact amount and added pecans. I hope they come out.?

    • Marty Walden says:

      Hi, Jill. Sorry, I was on vacation when you left this comment. Did the muffins turn out?

      • Jill says:

        Yes they did. I’m still curious about you only ending up with 12 and I 19? And why did my streusel not look like
        Yes they did! But I’m still curious why I ended up with 19 and recipe says 12? And my streusel doesn’t look like your picture above, more like a oatmeal cookie…lol
        Definitely will make these again. My husband loves them better after being frozen! 🙂
