Pumpkin Streusel Muffins Recipe

Tucked into the middle of each moist muffin is a tasty surprise - in the shape of a cube of cream cheese! "The simple filling adds loads of creamy flavor," reveals Denise Nebel of Wayland, Iowa. "The streusel topping is nicely crunchy."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cooked or canned pumpkin
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, cut into 12 cubes
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter or margarine


  • 1. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl, beat the egg; add milk, pumpkin and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill 12 greased or paper-lined muffin cups half full. Place a cream cheese cube in the center of each. Top with remaining batter.
  • 2. For streusel, combine brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter. Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen.

"These are great the first day. But they do not taste like pumpkin and are pretty dry on day 2."

"Really good, had lots of pumpkin, so I made 5 dozen. Made some with and some without the cream cheese, both turned out really well. Just a note for Canadian bakers - 3oz is only 85g (most packages have 250g, so only use a third)."
