Reviews for Streusel Pumpkin Muffins
"Wow! These muffins are great! My husband and I really enjoyed the hint of orange and molasses, and we both agreed that this is our new favorite. I added 1/4 c. cinnamon chips to the batter and sprinkled a few more over the streusel before baking, which I will definitely do again."
"Delicious! I made these muffins just as written and will definitely make them often. Not as dense as my other muffins recipes, due to less pumpkin."
"These were really good. I did omit the orange zest and I added a maple cream cheese filling. AMAZING........................"
"Excellent recipe. This is exactly what I am looking for. Perfect amount of sweetness. Friends and family loved them. It?s definitely a keeper."
"YUMMMS.These were so delicious, the streusel topping was amazing, although I made half without it and stirred in some raisins and they turned out just as great.Only ingredient I would omit next time would be the orange zest, a little too citrusy for me.I also made these without the molasses since I did not have any at hand.Thanks for the recipe!!!"
