My family liked these at the Thanksgiving dinner party, of course they mostly preferred the pumpkin

I made these following the recipe exactly and they were wonderful! Very moist and a nice blend of pumpkin and apple. I agree with the other comments as far as the streusel topping though, it pretty much melted on top of the muffin. Next time I will add more flour and use less butter.

These muffins are amazing! I used tart, Granny Smith apples for a more distinctive taste. They're the best straight out of the oven! A lot of oil, though. I'm going to try my next batch with the applesauce substitution.

Made this as a bread. Delicious. I used fresh pumpkin. This recipe is a keeper, very moist and flavorful. YUM!

The crumb topping wasn't at all crumbly - more of a paste. I broke it up with my hands and put it on top of the batter. It sort of just melted over the top. Tasted fine, just hard to work with. Less butter and more flour or oatmeal would make it better I think. Muffins (actually I made some muffins and some mini loaves of bread) were very tasty and moist. 2 other things I changed were substituting 1/4c applesauce for 1/4c of the oil (to cut the fat), and added chopped pecans on the top of the crumb topping on some of the muffins.
