These cinnamon streusel muffins are unbelievably good! From the moist coffee cake base, to the delicious streusel topping to the sweet glaze finish these homemade muffins are sure to hit the spot! 

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: Baking
Servings: 24 cupcakes
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups sour cream
  • streusel topping (recipe below)
  • glaze (recipe below)
Instructions
  1. Make streusel topping (see recipe below) and stick in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill while you make your muffin mix. 

  2. Add butter and eggs into a large bowl or mixer and beat on high until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time beating after each addition. Add vanilla. 

  3. Gradually add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add sour cream and stir until just combined. 

  4. Preheat your oven to 350 and put paper liners in two muffin tins. Divide your batter evenly among your cups (I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop). Sprinkle half of your streusel topping evenly over muffins and gently press down into your batter with your hand, then sprinkle the remaining batter evenly over each muffin. 

  5. Bake muffins until a toothpick comes out clean, usually 18-20 minutes, rotating tins halfway through bake time. 

  6. Mix your glaze and use a spoon to drizzle over your muffins. Enjoy!

      Thanks for your sweet comment about the muffins! Nope, it’s not a fake ad. We have an ad agency that takes care of advertising for us, and they change the ads that appear minute by minute, based on all kinds of computer-y things that we don’t really know how to explain! haha! We completely trust them! Thank you for the heads up though! :)

    I have a similar coffee cake recipe but never thought to make it as muffins. Can’t wait to try these! It’s a bonus that they bake faster than coffee cake. Less wait time till that first yummy bite!

      Jessica

      Yes! That is a total bonus! We will have to try your cake out too!
