Pumpkin Crumb Muffin Recipe

Moist pumpkin muffins filled with spices of Fall with a pumpkin spice crumb topping.

I recently baked these muffins for a small "Coffee Chat" gathering, and they were a hit...

These muffins are so moist and full of pumpkin flavor! - Michelle A.

Pumpkin Crumb Muffins


  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup packed light or dark brown sugar

  • 1 and 1/2 cups canned pumpkin puree

  • 2 large eggs (at room temperature)

  • 1/4 cup milk, at room temperature

Crumb Topping

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup packed light or dark brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon store-bought or homemade pumpkin pie spice

  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a 12-count muffin pan with non-stick spray or line with cupcake liners. Set aside.

  2. Make the muffins: In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt together until combined. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk the oil, granulated sugar, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, eggs and milk together until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, then fold everything together gently just until combined and no flour pockets remain.

  3. Spoon the batter into liners, filling them almost full.

  4. Make the crumb topping: Whisk the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice together until combined. Using a fork, lightly mix in the melted butter until crumbs form. Don’t over-mix. Spoon crumbs evenly on top of the batter and gently press them down into the batter so they’re snug.

  5. Bake for 5 minutes at 425 then, keeping the muffins in the oven, reduce the oven temperature to 350°F. Bake for an additional 16-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The total time these muffins take in the oven is about 21-22 minutes, give or take.

The Fall season is my favorite time of the year to to bake. I bake all year round, but the Fall brings some of my favorite types of items to bake with the Fall spices and ingredients, so stay tuned for more Fall inspired recipes!
