- In a large bowl stir together flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the center of flour mixture. In a medium bowl, mix the egg, buttermilk, pumpkin, the 2/3 cup brown sugar, and the melted butter. Add this wet pumpkin mixture all at once to the flour mixture and stir just until moistened (Don't overmix!).
- Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each nearly full. Spoon topping evenly over batter.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean. Cool in the muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove and cool completely on wire rack.
