Streusel Topping

In the bowl of an electric mixer, using a paddle attachment, mix (or you can use a pastry cutter and do this step by hand):
1 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
4 ounces cold unsalted butter
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt

Continue mixing until pea-size bits of streusel form. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix to combine:
3 cups sugar
3/4 plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil ( substitute 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil +2 tablespoons for a low fat version)
3 large eggs
1 15-ounce can of pumpkin

Sift together:
3 1/4 cups of flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
Pinch of allspice

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.

*Optional add and stir just to combine:
1 cup chopped nuts
3/4 cup golden raisins

Fill paper lined muffin pan to the top of the paper liner. Sprinkle approximately 2 tablespoons of streusel over the top of each muffin. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool 5 to 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
