These easy Pumpkin Spice Muffins begin with a boxed spice cake mix and end with a delicious streusel topping. Must have breakfast or snack for fall!
Looking back on my years as a mom of many kids (and how did those years fly by so fast?) one of the best things I did for myself was to carve out time away every few months to get out of the house.
I was blessed that a good friend of mine shared my passion for scrapbooking and gathered likeminded crafty friends together three times a year to create, converse and eat!
Goodness, gracious, do we eat during these weekends!
We all take something to share as a snack and share the meal time preparation as well.
During our fall retreat my favorite recipe to take is Pumpkin Spice Muffins and 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 (can you say thank goodness for cake mixes!) 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.
This recipe starts with a spice cake mix and ends with streusel topping, a fabulous combination for the cooler weather!
Enjoy the muffins and here’s to bundling up in a sweater and grabbing those comfy boots out of the closet!
Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Streusel Topping
- 1 box spice cake mix
- 1 can pumpkin
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 stick margarine softened
- 1/2 cup flour
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin.
- Place all muffin ingredients in a bowl and mix by hand until well blended.
- Scoop into muffin tin.
- Blend together brown sugar, margarine and flour.
Sprinkle streusel on top of muffins and press down slightly.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20-24 minutes.
I prefer these muffins with a spice cake mix but have also used a yellow cake mix if necessary.
These are the most moist muffins and the streusel is delightful!
