Easy Mini Coffee Cake Muffins recipe with a cinnamon sugar streusel on top! These fluffy moist muffins are so quick to make! Recipe makes 16 mini muffins, only 105 calories a piece.
These Mini Coffee Cake 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! Not much has changed as an adult, I still love it!
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 or 3 or 4….) without guilt. These Coffee Cake Muffins taste just like traditional Coffee Cake with a sweet cinnamon sugar crumble on top.
How to Make Coffee Cake Muffins
For this recipe you’ll need need 2 bowls. One to make the cake in, the other to make that extra yummy cinnamon sugar crumble.
The muffins will need a couple dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Then add in your wet ingredients: butter, egg, milk and vanilla. Some coffee cake muffin recipes call for sour cream, but these are so moist and fluffy without the sour cream! I like to use a hand mixer to mix everything until smooth.
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 it’s time to add the Cinnamon Sugar Crumble for the top of each muffin!
How to Make Coffee Cake Streusel
Here’s what you need for the cinnamon streusel topping.
- melted butter
In a small bowl combine your flour, sugar and cinnamon with a fork. Next, add in your melted butter and mix until you have a crumbly mixture. Make sure to watch the recipe video (it’s up above) if you have any questions on how to make the streusel.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 14-15 minutes. They Coffee Cake Muffins will be overflowing out of their pan with sugar crumble goodness. I let these cool for about 15 minutes and then used a butter knife to gently remove them.

Can I freeze Coffee Cake Muffins?
Yes, you can absolutely freeze these muffins. I wait until they cool and then I put in freezer bags. When I’m ready to eat a muffin I will take one out of the bag and heat it in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds. It’s that easy!
I hope you enjoy this recipe for Coffee Cake Muffins as much as I do!
