A delicious pumpkin muffin topped with a pecan streusel crunch and drizzled with a maple icing. It is all the amazing flavors of fall all rolled in to a delicious breakfast treat. These were originally meant to be delivered to my husband’s office and the morning after I made them I slept in and came into the kitchen after he left for work to find all the muffins except for one that was missing. I called him and asked what happened and he chuckled and said, “I tried one, I am not sharing these!” I laughed and said “That is going into my blog post!” So, sorry everyone at his office, I made these for you!

It was so hard watching the blog yesterday knowing there was no post for you all to see! I am so ready to settle in to my new host for the long haul and I think I found a good place to call home. Some of my favorite large blogs with lots of traffic trust my new host so I feel confident we are all going to benefit from the awesome service they are providing.

That being said I actually could not load this post on to the site because I had to wait for it to make its way on to the new host and I couldn’t log on until it was done. I totally kept busy all day to keep my mind off of it. I changed our cable provider and bought new cell phones. Now you know what I do when I am anxious… SHOP! Luckily I was home all day so I didn’t go out and buy the Mac desktop I was looking at last week… Everything in due time, first I need a desk for the computer to go on! Right now my desk is the couch and my computer is a laptop my husband got in law school years ago. Let’s just say I can go get a snack from the kitchen while I wait for Photoshop to open.

These muffins are really quick to make and the toppings can be used together or you can choose one or the other if you want something a bit quicker or simple. A delicious pumpkin muffin topped with a pecan streusel crunch and drizzled with a maple icing.

  1. I Googled “Pumpkin Pecan Muffins,” and this recipe came up. I liked the look of the streusel topping and maple icing drizzle and decided to make them. I needed the muffins for an early morning meeting, so mixed all of the wet ingredients, made the streusel topping, and measured out the baking powder and flour the night before. I did use larger baking cups-the fancy straight-sided ones you find at really nice bakeries. (Sur la Table carries them.) I often find that pumpkin recipes yield a sloightly bland product, so I increased all of the spices slightly, and also included 1/4 teaspoon of cloves.
    It took maybe 10 minutes to get them in the oven the next morning. Due to the slightly larger baking cups, my yield was only 14, and I baked them for 18 minutes.
    When I served these beautiful muffins at my meeting, still slightly warm, everyone could not praise them enough! They far exceeded my expectations and I am definitely going to put them in my baking rotation for cold weather. Thanks for making me look good!

    1. Would love to help but I am not understanding the question. By serving size do you mean 1 muffin? The recipe makes a total of 24 muffins. If you mean nutritional info those are not numbers I calculate. Hope that helps but if it doesn’t I am happy to help if I can.

  2. Oh yummy, and I just brought back some maple syrup from Canada that would make a good addition. These seem like the perfect midday filler or breakfast!

  3. Well, if we had to wait an extra day for a new recipe I’m grateful it was this one! These look absolutely scrumptious. It helps that I’m a huge pumpkin fan. I actually stock up towards the end of winter because it can be in short supply during the spring & summer.

  4. Oh wow these look just amazing. I’ve never had anything pumpkin, but I am just waiting for the right recipe to try. This could be it! Looks so good.

  5. The kids are just laughing at me because I jot down the dates delicious recipes I want to make appear in blogs. I have had the worst time with printers this year and the wireless HP, which I loved, just totally quit! So I can’t print out the iced maple pumpkin pecan streusel muffin recipe today, but hopefully will get it done next week and give them a try. I hope you find a great desk very soon!

    1. Thanks Paige! We kind of devoured them because they were so good. I was only slightly embarassed by how many empty liners were left behind after the carnage 😉

  6. Those look so good! I love just about everything pumpkin. I may just have to make these real soon. I think they’d go over well for the holidays.

    1. Thanks Kathy! I bought so many pumpkins, I forsee this blog becoming pumpkin central in short order. Fall is my favorite season for weather and flavors!

      1. Sorry, should have clarified! I meant how many muffins it made, not nutrition (with as good as these look I don’t think I want to know!). I ended up making them this afternoon and made 19, but I made very large muffins. They are delicious! Definitely keeping this! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

        1. So glad they worked out for you and you enjoyed them! For me they made a perfect 24 in normal muffin tins with cupcake liners. I may have been able to squeeze a 25th out if I really tried, haha.

    1. I promised myself I am not propogating again until I go to a VPS, it always completely drains me emotionally. I know I only missed posting a recipe Monday but it felt like forever!

    1. I have a love/hate with nuts. In savory food I normally don’t like the crunch but in baked goods and salads I am all about them!

    1. Me too! But by about a week of Thanksgiving leftovers I am pumpkin’d out until the following Fall. Gives me just enough time to gorge on all things pumpkin for two months!
