Brown Butter Pumpkin Streusel Muffins with Brown Butter Glaze

Oh boy – these muffins are so decadent and incredibly delicious. I had a can of pumpkin puree to use up so I went in search of recipes and found this muffin recipe on Two Peas and Their Pod that looked irresistible. They took some time to make but were worth the extra effort. The brown butter flavor in the muffins and in the glaze makes these tasty muffins over the top delicious and we all loved them. My kids were super thrilled that these brown butter pumpkin streusel muffins with brown butter glaze are this week’s school lunch treat.

How to Make Brown Butter Pumpkin Streusel Muffins with Brown Butter Glaze

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

Brown the butter by melting it in a small saucepan over medium-low heat and continue to cook, stirring often, until the butter turns golden brown and has a nice nutty aroma. Watch it carefully so it doesn’t burn. Pour into a dish and set aside to cool to room temperature.

Make the batter by using a mixer to beat the pumpkin puree, sugar, cooled browned butter, eggs, and vanilla extract until creamy and smooth.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, baking soda, and salt until well combined. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture until just combined.

Pour the batter equally between the twelve muffin cups.

Make the pecan streusel by combining the flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Cut the butter into the mixture using your fingers until the mixture is coarse and crumbly. Add the chopped pecans and mix until well combined. Sprinkle the streusel evenly over each unbaked muffin cup.
