Tuesday Cook Off ~ Brown Sugar Pumpkin Muffins with Crumb Topping

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Brown Sugar Pumpkin Muffins with Crumb Topping

It is starting to feel like fall here in Phoenix.   The mornings and evening are finally getting cool and it’s a joy to actually walk outside.   So when temperatures start to dip here in Phoenix I start to break out the pumpkin.   My whole family is pumpkin lovers and likes almost anything pumpkin.   So I found this recipe on Pinterest and have been waiting to make these muffins. Finally, this weekend I made the muffins and they were delicious!!  Next time my youngest son wants me to add some chocolate chips to the muffins and I know this will be a great addition.

Here is the recipe from:  Top Inspired


2 1/2 cups AP flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp ground cinnamon

a pinch of freshly ground nutmeg

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 sticks (12 tbsp) unsalted butter, melted

2 cups packed brown sugar

1 can (15 oz) pumpkin puree or 1 1/2 cups homemade puree

3 large eggs


1. Preheat oven to 375.  In a large bowl whisk together dry ingredients.  In another bowl combine the butter, sugar, pumpkin, and eggs.  Add dry to wet ingredients, stir to combine, don’t over mix.

2.  Pour batter into lined muffin pan.  Makes 12 big muffins. Or: one buttered and floured 9×5 loaf pan.

3.  Bake for 25-30 minutes (1 hour and 15-20 minutes for bread), until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Dig in while they’re still warm!

For the Crumb Topping:
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 C AP flour
  • 1/2 C butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
