Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

In large mixing bowl, mix together:

  • 2 cups pumpkin
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar ( I use raw sugar)
  • 3/4 cup oil (canola, vegetable, etc.)
In separate container, mix together dry ingredients:
  • 2 T cinnamon
  • 1 t salt
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 T baking powder
  • 1/2 t baking soda
Now add dry ingredients to wet ingredients alternating with:
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I use soy milk...dairy allergies, or you can use water)
Once ingredients are mixed, pour into greased muffin tins, then mix together:
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar (I use raw sugar)
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup flour
Cut 2-3 T butter or margarine into dry mixture & sprinkle 1/2 t onto each muffin. Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Mini muffins will take less time.

This is a very large recipe. For me, it usually makes 24 muffins and one 8-9 inch cake (pan is greased and floured). It could probably be poured into a bread pan as well.
