Yesterday I was bored and it was a rainy chilly autumn day here in Germany. I was grocery shopping and craving something pumpkin and sweet. I grabbed a few items and went home to whip up this delicious pumpkin spice muffin recipe. I added a streusel topping to make it a little bit fancier and more like something you would find in a coffee shop or serve at a brunch.
I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
Pumpkin Spice Muffins
with Pecan Brown Sugar Streusel Topping
Pumpkin Spice Muffins:
1 box spice cake mix
1 can pumpkin
2 teaspoons vanilla
Pecan Brown Sugar Struesel:
1/2 cup chopped pecan pieces
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix together ingredients for streusel topping in a small bowl, set aside.
Mix together cake mix, pumpkin, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl. Don't worry, your batter will be really thick. Pour into lined muffin tins. Top with struesel topping, slightly pressing into muffin mixture.
Bake 20-25 mins or until toothpick comes out clean. Makes 12 muffins.
My daughter and I enjoyed having them this morning with mugs of hot cocoa!
