Ingredients

For the Crumb Topping:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 Pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted

For the Pumpkin Muffins:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F (180°C) and line a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin liners.
  • To make the topping: In a small bowl combine flour, sugar, pumpkin spice, and a pinch of salt. Add melted butter and stir until combined. Set aside.
  • To make the muffins: In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin spice, and salt. Set aside.
  • In another bowl whisk together pumpkin puree and melted butter. Add the eggs and buttermilk, and mix until combined.
  • Using a rubber spatula stir flour mixture into wet ingredients until just combined and no flour pockets remain. Don't overmix.
  • Grease a 1/3 cup measuring cup and use it to portion 1/3 cup batter into each muffin cup. The muffin cups should be filled to the rim.
  • Sprinkle 1 tbsp of topping over each muffin and bake muffins for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Then remove muffins from the pan and let cool on the rack for a few more minutes.
