Pumpkin Crumb Cake Muffins

Today I had the opportunity to just relax. So, I decided to bake! It’s that time of the season for pumpkin flavored treats! I of course scrolled through Pinterest until something caught my eye. Well, a lot of things caught my eye so be looking for more pumpkin recipes!

Any who, this one was definitely a good find. The muffin itself is flavorful and moist. It does make 15 so I had to use a 12 muffin tin and a mini muffin tin. Unfortunately I forgot to cook the mini ones at a lesser time, therefore it wasn’t as moist, but still yummy! Let’s not forget about the crumb cake on top. YUM. It adds a great combination flavor to the muffin.

I will be making this a lot. And I hope you will too!

35 min
  1. 1 and 3/4 cups (220g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  2. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  3. 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  4. 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/2 cup (120ml) canola or vegetable oil
  7. 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  8. 1/2 cup (100g) packed light or dark brown sugar
  9. 1 and 1/2 cups (340g) canned pumpkin puree
  10. 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  11. 1/4 cup (60ml) milk, at room temperature
Crumb Topping
  1. 3/4 cup (94g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  2. 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  3. 1/4 cup (50g) packed light or dark brown sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  5. 6 Tablespoons (86g) unsalted butter, melted
Maple Icing (optional)
  1. 1 and 1/2 cups (180g) confectioners' sugar
  2. 2 Tablespoons (30ml) pure maple syrup
  3. 2 Tablespoons (30ml) milk
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C). Spray a 12-count muffin pan with nonstick spray or line with cupcake liners. This recipe makes 15 muffins, so prepare a second muffin pan in the same manner. Set aside.
  2. Make the muffins: In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt together until combined. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk the oil, granulated sugar, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, eggs and milk together until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, then fold everything together gently just until combined and no flour pockets remain.
  3. Spoon the batter into liners, filling them almost full.
  4. Make the crumb topping: Whisk the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice together until combined. Stir in the melted butter until crumbs form. Spoon crumbs evenly on top of the batter and gently press them down into the batter so they're snug.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes at 425 then, keeping the muffins in the oven, reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (177°C). Bake for an additional 16-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The total time these muffins take in the oven is about 21-22 minutes, give or take. Allow the muffins to cool for 10 minutes in the muffin pan as you make the icing. *For mini muffins, bake for 11-13 minutes at 350°F (177°C) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Make the icing: Whisk all of the icing ingredients together until combined and smooth. Drizzle over muffins and serve warm. Cover tightly and store at room temperature for 1-2 days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  1. Make ahead tip: For longer storage, freeze muffins (with or without icing) for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then bring to room temperature or warm up in the microwave if desired. Top with icing before serving if needed.
