These are delicious! And don't let the "pumpkin" deter you from trying them. Super easy as well. Yesterday, I took them to Cora's baby blessing, then made another batch for Ken to take to work today. And now, batch #3 is cooking so Adelle can eat them to her heart's content!
Preheat oven to 350 degress. Lightly grease 18 muffin cups or use paper liners. (I get more like 20-22 muffins out of this recipe.)
In a large bowl, sift together:
2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups white sugar
1 T pumpkin pie spice
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
In a separate bowl, mix:
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Add this pumpkin mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just moistened. Fold in 2 cups peeled, cored and chopped apples. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
In a small bowl, mix together:
2 T flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 t cinnamon.
Cut in 4 T butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping evenly over muffin batter.
Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
Delicious! (Pix may be coming....)
