Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

We went from 86 degrees yesterday to about 60 degrees right now, Wednesday night. It is cool and rainy and kind of feels like a fall night. The temperature is supposed to be in the 50s the next few days. This recipe for pumpkin streusel muffins fits right into the fall weather, but they would be really yummy even in the spring!

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins
1 pkg yellow cake mix
1 can pumpkin (15 oz or 2 cups homemade pumpkin puree)
1 egg
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
Crumb topping:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/8 cup flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 T butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the muffin ingredients together and pour into a greased muffin tin. Combine brown sugar, flour, ground cinnamon and butter to make the topping. Cut the topping together with a fork until it resembles a coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping on the top of the muffins before baking. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
