Pumpkin Crumb Cake Muffins
makes 15 muffins
All-Purpose Flour 1 3/4 cup
Baking Soda 1 teaspoon
Ground Cinnamon 2 teaspoon
Nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon
Cardamom 1/4 teaspoon
Ground Ginger 1/2 teaspoon
Kosher Salt 1/2 teaspoon
Canola Oil 1/2 cup
Sugar 1/2 cup
Packed Light Sugar 1/2 cup
Canned Pumpkin Puree 1 1/2 cup
Eggs, large 2
Milk 1/4 cup
Crumb Topping
All-Purpose Flour 3/4 cup
Sugar 1/4 cup
Light Brown Sugar 1/2 cup
Ground Cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon
Butter, unsalted 6 tablespoons
Maple Icing
Powdered sugar 1 1/2 cups
Pure Maple Syrup 2 tablespoons
Milk 2 tablespoons
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a 12-count muffin pan with nonstick spray or line
with cupcake liners. This recipe makes 15 muffins, so prepare a second muffin pan in
the same manner. Set aside.
Make the muffins: In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, spices, and salt together until combined. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk the oil, granulated sugar, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, eggs and milk together until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, then fold everything together gently just until combined and no flour pockets remain. Spoon the batter into liners, filling them almost full.
Make the crumb topping: Whisk the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon together until combined. Stir in the melted butter until crumbs form. Spoon crumbs evenly on top of the batter and gently press them down into the batter so they’re snug.
Bake for 5 minutes at 425 then, keeping the muffins in the oven, reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Bake for an additional 16-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The total time these muffins take in the oven is about 21-22 minutes, give or take. Allow the muffins to cool for 10 minutes in the muffin pan as you make the icing. *For mini muffins, bake for 11-13 minutes at 350°F (177°C) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Make the icing: Whisk all of the icing ingredients together until combined and smooth. Drizzle over muffins and serve warm. Cover tightly and store at room temperature for 1-2 days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
