Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins
One fall I had a mission to try out as many muffin recipes as I could find that I thought might be yummy. From the dozens I tried, here's one that made the cut.
- 2 1/2 c
- all purpose unbleached flour
- 2 c
- 1 Tbsp
- pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp
- kosher or sea salt
- 2 large
- eggs, beaten
- 1 c
- pumpkin, canned
- 1/2 c
- canola oil
- 2 c
- granny smith apples, fine dice
- recipe streusel topping, below
1Whisk together the flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.
2In a medium bowl beat together the pumpkin, eggs, and oil.
3Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry mixture and using a wooden spoon, stir until just blended. Gently stir in the apples.
4Scoop batter into muffin cups until about 2/3 full. Sprinkle streusel topping over the batter.
5Bake at 350?F for about 30 minutes and check to see if done with the toothpick test.
In a small bowl combine 2 tablespoons flour, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Cut in 4 tablespoons unsalted butter until mixture is nice and crumbly.
