RECIPE for Mini Coffee Cake Muffins that taste just like Coffee Cake but in muffin form! They are so easy to make! You’ll love the delicious cinnamon sugar crumble on top too! Recipe makes 16 mini muffins.
These Mini Muffins are delicious. D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! As a kid one of my favorite desserts was coffee cake – breakfast, dessert, holidays – it didn’t matter, when I saw it I was always going to have a piece! I was recently craving a piece of coffee cake but wasn’t in the mood to make a entire cake. I really love mini muffins because since they are small it means I can eat 1 (or 2) without guilt. For these Mini Coffee Cake Muffins, they taste just like traditional Coffee Cake with the moist cake and the cinnamon sugar crumble on top.
For this recipe you’ll need need 2 bowls. One to make the cake in, the other to make that extra yummy sugar crumble.
Next fill up your mini muffin pan. I love using this pan in the kitchen and consider it one of my favorite baking tools.
Now add your crumble on top. It might seem like alot of crumble to put on top but you have to trust me on this.
And about 15 minutes later beautiful Mini Coffee Cake Muffins come out of the oven.
They will be overflowing out of their pan with sugar crumble goodness. I let these cool for about 15 minutes and then use a butter knife to gently remove them.
I hope you enjoy these muffins as much as we do! Just a warning though, they’re addictive! 🙂
