Halloween (or Hallowe’en ... but also known as Samhain, Summer’s End, All Hallow’s Eve, Witches Night, Lamswool, and Snap-Apple), is a holiday that's celebrated annually on the night of October 31. It's celebrated in a variety of ways and activities including trick-or-treating, ghost tours, bonfires, costume parties, "haunted house" tours, carving pumpkins (Jack-o'-lanterns) and reading / watching scary stories / movies. Here the children enjoy so much wearing the Halloween costumes, trick-or-treating. So I thought this would be the right time to post my pumpkin muffins as a Halloween treat, as well as for this wonderful fall season. By seeing pumpkin everywhere I am so much tempted to bake pumpkin muffin. Pumpkin muffins with cream cheese topping or with streusel topping are so so delicious and you will not stop eating with just one. So here is soft, moist and yummilicious pumpkin muffins with crunchy streusel topping.
