Jumbo Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

by on December 31, 2009 · 14 comments

We had muffins again this morning.

Fuzz agreed to pose with one.


Then “Yoink!”


Lizzie jumped up and grabbed it. She knows better, but we were asking for it holding the muffin up like that. Luckily, it was a super jumbo muffin so at least Fuzz got half. And really, that’s all you need. The jumbo muffins are excessive, but like I said before, they bake up with big moist centers and look kind of neat.

Jumbo Pumpkin Streusel Muffins
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 1 1/4 cups of canned pumpkin (10 oz)
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour plus a tablespoon (7 oz)**
  • 1/2 scant teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 scant teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons all purpose flour
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line 6 jumbo muffin cups with paper liners
  2. Beat the pumpkin, sugar, oil, and eggs together in a mixing bowl.
  3. Mix the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves together in a second larger bowl.
  4. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture and stir just until well-mixed. Divide evenly among the 6 muffin tins.
  5. Make topping. Mix together the butter, sugar and cinnamon. Stir in the flour so that you have a crumbly topping. Sprinkle topping evenly over muffins.
  6. Place in oven on center rack.
  7. REDUCE OVEN HEAT TO 375 degree F.
  8. Bake for 25-28 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs.
  9. Makes 6
  10. **I weighed the flour

ale and it was 7 oz, so if you have a scale it’s best to weigh the flour.

Anna Happy New Year! Let’s make 2010 a rocking good year.

Happy New Year! Your muffin phase has inspired me to send muffins to work on Saturday. :) These and some William Shatner cappucino muffins plus a less sweet one like bran or cornbread, and the drivers will be happy people LOL. Thank you, Anna, for the terrific recipes and wonderful blogs. Best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful 2010! :)

Happy New Year. Your daughter is a cutie! Looking forward to trying these muffins.

Think of it this way, Anna. It was Lizzie’s New Year’s gift.

Sara January 2, 2010 at 4:55 pm

She is so cute…looks like a really happy kid. I hope 2010 is so good that I don’t want it to end!

Those corgis just can’t be trusted around food!

Celia January 5, 2010 at 8:10 pm

See, corgis masquerade as herding dogs, but they’re really mighty hunters stalking human food until the perfect moment to strike.

Anna January 5, 2010 at 8:20 pm

Are they not the perfect kitchen dogs ever? Cooking’s just not the same without a corgi underfoot.

Alexa January 18, 2010 at 6:05 am

if the dog eats it i eat it too! :P joking. It looks really delicious actually! i’m trying homemade muffins for the first time today so wish me luck! Congrat for your blog by the way i’m adding you to my favs if that’s ok. Have a nice day :)

Just tried this one, it’s excellent! I didn’t have the exact spices on hand, so I substituted pumpkin pie spice. I also added a half tablespoon of orange zest, which I thought might be interesting, but it’s really pretty hard to notice IMO; I probably wouldn’t bother with that again. This marks the first time I’ve ever made muffins from scratch!

Anna February 10, 2010 at 7:07 am

Congratulations on your first batch of scratch muffins, Melissa!

Valerie March 27, 2012 at 10:54 pm

I made these muffins. They are the best homemade muffins I have ever eaten. They were easy to make and fit well into a jumbo 6 muffin pan. Looking forward to having them again!
