coffee cake muffins with cinnamon streusel party!

Pin It

I broke my Sunday morning tradition of making homemade waffles to make this classic recipe. I remember my mom making coffee cake for us all the time when I was growing up. It's a delicious cake with simple ingredients & is perfect for breakfast, brunch or dessert. This one is just like mom used to make except I made it into muffins. If you prefer you can bake it in a 9x13 pan at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

Cinnamon Streusel Topping
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup pecans, finely chopped
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup cold butter, (1/2 stick, cut into pieces)

In small bowl combine 1st four ingredients. Cut in 1/4 cup butter with pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.


Muffins
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
3 eggs
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla

directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray muffin tins for 18 muffins with cooking spray or line with paper baking cups.

2. In large mixing bowl cream brown sugar, butter and eggs. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Stir in vanilla. Batter will be thick.

3. Spoon half the batter into muffin tins, sprinkle with half the crumb mixture. Add remaining batter and top with remaining crumb mixture.

4. Bake 5 minutes at 400 degrees then decrease temperature to 375 degrees and bake for an additional 12-15 minutes. Cool 5 minutes & remove from pans into cooling rack.

P.S. I didn't bake my muffins in the paper baking cups shown in the first photo. I just like to put them in the papers for serving.
