Best Most Wonderful Pumpkin Muffins Ever!!!

I think these have to be the best pumpkin muffins I have ever eaten. They are moist and have the most delicious streusel topping.....mmmmm

Pumpkin Muffins

1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter crisco
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Cream brown sugar and crisco. Beat in eggs. Add canned pumpkin and milk. Mix. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cloves and cinnamon. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture. Mix well. Apply streusel to tops of muffins. Bake at 350 for approximately 30-35 minutes. (For Jumbo Muffins)

1/3 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp melted butter
Mix well and put on top of muffins before baking.

This recipe makes 6 jumbo muffins or 12 standard size. Double to make 12 jumbo or 24 standard. I usually always double and I always make standard size. I also do not use muffin liners, I grease my muffin tins with crisco.


  1. These were Fantastic!! The topping is so easy to make compared to the usual pastry cutter method and the muffins are moist and tasty. I made a dozen muffins and they were all gone within 12 hours. Making them again only three days later!

  2. Can I substitute real butter for the crisco?

I have a restaurant in Brazil, Indiana named Simply Decadent Cafe & Catering. I also do full event catering along with wedding/party planning. I must admit I am horribly addicted to coffee and wild cherry diet pepsi along with chocolate. I love listening to my MP3 player while I cook and have been known to dance around the kitchen a little. Have to make the kitchen fun don't we? I don't have any formal kitchen training, but have learned a lot over the years from a few fantastic cooks, my grandma being one of them. I love trying new recipes and my customers are always willing to be my taste testers.
