Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins
It may seem like a fussy step to let both the batter and the streusel rest at room temperature, but it is important. The starches in gluten-free flour--usually potato starch or cornstarch--need time to absorb enough liquid to lose their chalky mouth-feel. The payoff for your patience? Moist, tender muffins with a delicate crumb.
