Get into the season with these delicious Pumpkin Muffins with Crunchy Brown Sugar Topping. Easy to make, this is the BEST recipe for super moist and tasty Pumpkin Muffins.
One taste and you’ll agree that this is the best pumpkin muffins recipe ever! Seriously, no exaggeration, these muffins are moist, flavorful, and have a crunchy brown sugar topping.
This is a great treat to have on hand during the fall season when guests arrive. Great with coffee or tea, or by themselves. I personally love to have a big batch in the refrigerator so we can have pumpkin muffins on the go when needed!
To make, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 12 well muffin tin with cooking spray or use cupcake liners. (P.S. If you are looking for a great Muffin Tin I highly recommend the USA Bakeware Muffin Pan, 12 Well, Nonstick & Quick Release Coating – I get perfect muffins every time with this tin.)
Next, combine all of the wet ingredients, including sugar in a large bowl. Beat well with a hand mixer. Add in the dry ingredients and mix just to combine. Sprinkle on the cinnamon brown sugar topping right before baking.
Look at how much these Pumpkin Muffins puff up! You’ll know they are ready when a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.
The combination of spices will give you that Pumpkin Spice effect, without going overboard. Great item to include for fall baking and makes a great treat for gifting. Enjoy!
