This is a pretty old recipe for Jumbo Pumpkin Streusel Muffins. It’s been on Cookie Madness for a long time, and people seem to like it.
But as an example of how old this recipe is, here’s a picture of my daughter with the first batch. Now she’s in college.
And Lizzie is a senior corgi (who will still eat anything, as corgis do).
As I noted in my original post, these are gigantic. The good thing is that their size helps the muffins bake up with moist centers.

Here’s a link to a jumbo muffin pan on Amazon. The kind I use has 6 muffin indentations. Or muffin wells. Or muffin spaces? I never know what to call them.

- Pour the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture and stir just until well-mixed. Divide evenly among the muffin tins.
- 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.

If you make jumbo muffins you’ll only get 6 and they will take longer to bake.

This is the new favorite! That note is definitely confusing, but the muffin recipe above is the one we like. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
This recipe made muffins that were very attractive and they tasted great.
I’m curious about the note that says the recipe has been replaced by a new family favorite. Is this the favorite or is there another one you like better? It’s hard to imagine better because these were fantastic.
I made these muffins today and they are wonderful. I used a little bit of your Apple Muffin recipe in some of them and added applebutter and streusel to the centers. I think I need to make them that way all the time. It added a little sweet surprise and additional moisture. (not that they needed it) Thank you so much for publishing this recipe for me to find 6 years later….
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!
Congratulations on your first batch of scratch muffins, Melissa!
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!
if the dog eats it i eat it too! 😛 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 🙂
Are they not the perfect kitchen dogs ever? Cooking’s just not the same without a corgi underfoot.
See, corgis masquerade as herding dogs, but they’re really mighty hunters stalking human food until the perfect moment to strike.
Those corgis just can’t be trusted around food!
She is so cute…looks like a really happy kid. I hope 2010 is so good that I don’t want it to end!
Think of it this way, Anna. It was Lizzie’s New Year’s gift.
Happy New Year. Your daughter is a cutie! Looking forward to trying these muffins.
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! 🙂
Anna Happy New Year! Let’s make 2010 a rocking good year.
Boy, you are on a muffin kick! Glad you found one that Fuzz will eat! And Lizzie?? 😉
Great photos. The muffin looks great too. I mean the whole one, not the remains after Fuzz then Lizzie. 🙂
