Pumpkin Apple Muffins

Pumpkin Apple Muffins

The other day, I was looking to welcome Fall with some sort of pumpkin-flavored baked good. As it happened, I also had some apples that were on their last legs and that neither Rob or I was willing to eat. You know, they get a little rubbery sometimes. Anyhow, as silly as it is to bake a pumpkin-favored baked good to welcome in the continuation of 90-degree weather, that’s what I wanted to do, darn it. So … that’s what I did. I came across this recipe on Allrecipes.com for “Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins”. They were delicious – moist, chewy muffins that just begged to be eaten … in quantity! Rob and I both gave them an “A”. Here’s the recipe:

INGREDIENTS

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
2 cups peeled, cored, and small-diced apple

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 teaspoons butter

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 18 muffin cups (or use paper liners).
2. In a large bowl, sift together 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 cups sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, pumpkin, and oil. Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture, stirring just to moisten. Fold in apples. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups (I use the large Pampered Chef scoop for this – it is truly the PERFECT size for muffins.)
3. In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons flour, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping evenly over muffin batter. (I admit, this is my least favorite step and Rob did it. 🙂
4. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean. (My oven took 35 minutes).

ENJOY!

I know I’ve been lax at giving out prices for my recipes lately, and honestly, its because I was trying to get back into the flow of blogging. From here out, I PROMISE I will start including costs again.
