Dry ingredients: Flour, baking powder, sea salt, and cinnamon. – Wet ingredients: Milk, eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree. – Streusel for pumpkin muffins: Flour, sugar, cinnamon, cardamom (optional) salt, and butter. – For the glaze: Powdered sugar and milk.

Make the streusel topping first and set it aside while you make the muffins. This way it’s ready to go when you need it. Whisk the streusel ingredients, except the butter, into a bowl. Once combined, add in the cold butter cubes and use your hands to mix everything together until crumbles appear. It’ll look like a streusel!

Step 1

In one large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In a separate medium mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.

Step 2

Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and, without over-mixing, whisk until everything is combined.

Step 3

Using a cookie scoop if you have one, or just a regular spoon, divide the batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups. I like to line it with paper liners if I have some, but greasing it with oil or cooking spray works too.

Step 4

Sprinkle even amounts of the streusel on top then bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for 20-25 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the center of the muffins once the baking time is up. If it comes out clean, they’re ready.

Step 5

Once they’re out of the oven, allow them to sit and cool for a few minutes. In the meantime make the glaze. Combine the powdered sugar and milk and whisk. Drizzle on top of each of the muffins and enjoy!
