Pumpkin Muffins with Streusal Topping

Boy has it been crazy around here.  My daughter started kindergarten last week and its been exhausting trying to get into a new routine.  It is so chaotic trying to get two kids out to the bus by 7:30 AM every morning that by the time I am able to focus on getting myself ready for work, I am wore out!  I usually have a rough time when I have to switch up my routine.  Everything will fall into place really soon but it is going to be stressful until I get there.  My son is watching our daughter in the afternoons after they get off the bus.  He is doing a great job so far.  It is only a little over an hour, anything longer and I am not sure what I would come home to.

My babies!

Fall is in the air, the nights are a little cooler and its getting darker earlier.  Fall is my favorite time of year.  The first thing I think of with Fall is pumpkin.  I had been wanting to make these muffins for some time now just had not had the time to do them.  I fit a little time in on Sunday and baked away. These are super easy and super good. 

Spice Cake Mix, Can of Pumpkin, and water. I told you these are super easy.

Mix the cake mix with the can of pumpkin and water.  Fill the muffin cups. 

 If you want streusal topping ( I do recommend) place your flour, brown sugar, and butter in a dish and mix and cut with a fork, unless you have a pastry cutter. 

Place the streusal topping on the muffins, press the topping in just a bit.  Bake at 350 for 20- 24 minutes.  I also had a little extra mix so I made some mini muffins.  A perfect little bite!
