Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

PhotobucketThis is my very favorite muffin recipe. I discovered it last year I think and love making it as much as possible! These are so moist and delicious-a must when it's autumn! This also makes great bread, just put in greased loaf pans and add time-20 or so more minutes, depending on loaf pan size (until toothpick comes out clean).

2 1/2 c flour
2 c sugar
1 T pumpkin pie spice
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 c canned pumpkin puree
1/2 oil
2 c peeled, chopped apple (any sweet variety)

Streusel topping:

2 T flour
1/4 c sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
4 t butter

-Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease 24 muffin cups or use paper liners.
-In large bowl sift together dry ingredients.
-In another bowl mix wet ingredients well. Add to dry ingredients until just mixed and moistened.
-Fold in apples. Spoon batter into cups.
-In a small bowl mix streusel ingredients (I like to use my hand) until nice and crumbly. Sprinkle on top of each muffin.
-Bake for 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Erica, my visiting teachers Sharon and Lisa told me about your delicious blog tonight...and Carl loves to cook! I'm so excited to discover it.
Would it be okay to put a link on my sidebar on my blog? I know my viewers love good recipes and heaven forbid I don't cook much anymore.
Your mom and sisters are darling, I just want to know how you guys are so thin!
