Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins

Coffee Cake Muffins Recipe

When is the last time you had a muffin? I can’t even remember the last time I had one. The last breakfast pastry I had was a piece of Classic Coffee Cake at Starbucks and it was even better than I remembered (I worked there for 5 years)! It only made sense in my mind to make some coffee cake muffins. I had been planning to make some sort of chocolate chip muffins due to a regretful Sam’s Club chocolate chip purchase, but I’ll have to find something else to make with the 19 pounds of chocolate in my cupboard. Anyway, these coffee cake muffins were exactly what I was craving. You should probably make a batch this week, trust me.

Coffee Cake Muffins Recipe:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. instant espresso powder
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs

Crumble Topping:

1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. instant espresso
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 stick unsalted butter – melted

Pre-heat oven to 375-degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

For the muffins, mix together your flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and espresso in one large bowl. Set aside.

Coffee Cake Muffin Dry Ingredients

In a smaller bowl, whisk together your milk, sour cream, canola oil, vanilla and eggs.

Coffee Cake Muffin Wet Ingredients

Pour your sour cream mixture into the dry ingredients and mix just until all of the flour is combined. It will seem very thick, that’s good!

Coffee Cake Muffin Batter

In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients for the crumble topping (everything except the butter).

Crumble Topping Ingredients

Melt your stick of butter in a separate dish and pour it into your dry crumble ingredients.

Muffin Topping

Mix lightly with a fork until crumble pieces form.

Muffin Crumble Topping

Fill your muffin liners just 1/2 full and then fill the next half of the cup with the crumble topping.

Coffee Cake Muffin Cup

Press the topping pretty firmly into the batter. If you don’t press it a bit, some of it will fall off while baking.

Coffee Cake Muffin Topping

Bake at 375-degrees for 15-20 minutes, until you insert a toothpick into the muffin and it comes out clean.
