Print Recipe



  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 15 oz can pumpkin puree 1 can
  • 1/2 cup water

Streusel Topping

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place cupcake/muffin liners in a muffin pan.

Mix the batter

  • In a large bowl, gently whisk dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, spices).
  • In another large bowl (or the bowl of your electric mixer), add oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla and pumpkin. Blend well. Add water and blend until fully incorporated.
  • While slowly mixing, pour the dry ingredients in with the wet. Mix until just combined.

Make the streusel

  • In a medium bowl mix brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nuts (if desired). Pour in the melted butter and stir gently until the mixture is combined, but some small lumps remain.
  • Scoop muffin batter into prepared pan, filling liners about 1/2-2/3 full. Top each muffin with a spoon full of streusel topping.
  • Bake muffins 18-20 minutes (for standard sized muffins).
  • Bake extra large muffins (as pictured) 25-28 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs, but no wet batter.


Feel free to make this recipe into Pumpkin bread instead of muffins. Divide batter between 3 standard sized loaf pans. Bake loaves (in greased and floured pans) for 50-55 minutes.
This recipe makes a lot of muffins. Feel free to cut the recipe in half, or make some muffins and a loaf of bread.
