  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups solid pack pumpkin
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Streusel Topping:

  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix together the oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla and pumpkin in a bowl. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
  • Spoon the batter into muffin pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Divide the batter to make 18 muffins.
  • In a small bowl, cut the butter into the flour and sugar with a knife and/or fork. Mix until it resembles crumbs and the butter is in small pieces.
  • Divide the streusel between the 18 muffins, sprinkling it over the unbaked dough.
  • Bake the muffins for 13-15 minutes, until the cupcakes have risen and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once the muffins are cool, use a sifting spoon to sift powdered sugar over top.
