Pumpkin Muffins with Berries and Cinnamon Sugar Topping
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 Tbs. pumpkin pie spice* (Or, you can substitute 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp. ginger.)
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 1/4 cup pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling. Just canned pumpkin)
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 Tbs. flour
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 Tbs. butter
Step 1: Mix together dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls.
Combine flour, sugar, spices, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl combine pumpkin, eggs, and oil.
Step 2: Combine the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients.
Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture and stir well. Fold in blackberries.
Step 3: Fill paper lined muffin cups.
Fill 24 paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full. (The batter will be really stiff.) Or spray muffin tins well with non-stick spray and omit paper muffin cups.
Step 4: Top each muffin with streusel topping.
Streusel Topping: Combine 1/4 cup sugar, 2 Tbs. flour, and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Cut in 2 Tbs. butter with a pastry blender until crumbly.
Sprinkle over the top of muffin batter.
Step 5: Bake
Bake at 350 degrees for 28-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Remove muffins from the tin and cool on a wire rack.
A few extra tips:
- When “pouring” this thick batter into muffin tins, try using an ice cream scoop or cookie scoop with a trigger (like these). It makes the job so much easier and quicker.
- These pumpkin muffins will make your house smell amazing as they bake. It will make a cold blustery day feel so much more cozy!
- Although it calls for blackberries, you can substitute any fresh or frozen berry. Blueberries are also very good in this muffin.
- If you want to have these as a treat for a Fall party or an appetizer, try baking them in mini muffin tins and topping with cute cupcake flags.
