Streuseled Pumpkin Buttermilk Muffins

Streuseled Pumpkin Buttermilk Muffins need to be made
These Streuseled Pumpkin Buttermilk Muffins are the perfect answer to a Fall season breakfast. Tangy, moist and with big hunks of crunchy streusel, I can't think of a better way to enjoy my morning cup of coffee.

I would seriously eat muffins every day given the opportunity. Let's face it, they are the perfect bite with morning coffee or tea, especially when they are not too sweet (like these). My absolute favorite muffin on the planet are these Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. They are pretty amazing and another one you must try after making these.

Pumpkin muffins are a welcomed treat during the Fall season, the whole house smells like the holidays when they are baking. I love waking up to that, especially when there's  a little ginger in the list of ingredients.

Streuseled Pumpkin Buttermilk Muffins the batter
The batter for these muffins is stiff or maybe thick is a better word. You don't want to overmix the batter once you add the flour. A stand mixer gives the best result when it comes to not overmixing.

Streuseled Pumpkin Buttermilk Muffins in the tins
About 2/3 full for the batter in each muffin tin, leaving room for the streusel to be placed on top.

Streuseled Pumpkin Buttermilk Muffins the streusel
Divide the streusel evenly among the unbaked muffins...more is always better.

 Streuseled Pumpkin Buttermilk Muffins will be enjoyed by everyone who makes them
They are perfectly rustic looking, especially if you have an old, beat-up muffin tin to display them in.

These muffins disappear quickly too.

As the muffins bake and rise, the streusel spreads over the muffin and creates the perfect crunchy topping. Every bite has a nice hunk of sugar crunch that you are going to me.

  • For the topping, combine all of the ingredients and use your fingers to create a crumb like mixture. Scatter evenly over the top of all muffins.
  • Bake in the center rack of the oven for 22-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when stuck in to the center.
  • Cool muffins in the tin for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Remove and let completely cool, but they do taste good warm.
