These muffins are so yummy! I made them for breakfast this week and my kids gobbled them up. I had to share.
Pumpkin Apple Muffins
2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups sugar (I used only 1 1/2 cups. Two cups seemed like an awful lot)
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups finely chopped peeled apples
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, pumpkin spice, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl combine eggs, pumpkin and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apples. Fill lined muffin cups until three-fourths full. For topping, combine sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbles; sprinkle 1 teaspoon over each muffin. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack.
This recipe yields 18 muffins. I made 12 muffins but instead of doing another 6 I used the rest of the batter to make a small loaf of bread (a loaf will need to bake an extra 15 minutes). The muffins got gobbled up before I could snap a picture--hence the picture of the loaf.
