Easy to make, cake mix based muffins.
Total Time: one hour
Yield: 18 muffins
To make streusel topping: Cut margarine into flour, brown sugar and cinnamon, until it forms fine crumbs. Set aside.
To make muffin batter: Mix sugar, oil (or apple sauce), eggs. Add pumpkin and water. Mix with whisk.
In another bowl, sift together flour, baking flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. You can use more or less spice depending on personal taste. Add wet mixture to dry and stir in chocolate chips. Do not over-mix.
Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Top with streusel topping crumbs. Bake 20-22 minutes for regular muffins, 15 minutes for mini muffins. Test for doneness with toothpick. Watch carefully and do not over-bake.
Notes: This recipe yields a great abundance of muffins, perfect for sharing with family, friends, naighbors or co-workers. These can also be baked as mini loaves. I have not tried it, but believe that these would be good with whole wheat flour in place of regular. Instead of adding the individual amounts of cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon to the batter, you can use about 6 tsp. of "pumpkin pie spice."

This recipe was shared with me by a parent while I was teaching. She told me this was the way she had gotten her children to not only eat pumpkin but to also eat breakfast. The next day she showed up with the muffins for our family. It worked for my son. Now he makes them at least once each fall and eats other pumpkin dishes. The ingredients stay in our pantry. I have put them in Christmas gift baskets and taken them to parties. Every time, without fail, I am ask to share this recipe.

Mix together all the dry ingredients and make a "well" in the middle. In a separate bowl, beat eggs and then add pumpkin, oil and water. Mix well. Add to dry ingredients and stir until moist. Do not over-stir! Spoon into muffin pans about two-thirds full and bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees F. Immediately remove from pan. Serve and enjoy!
