Coffee Cake Muffins are a sweet cinnamon and brown sugar streusel muffin that everyone loves. I may not drink Coffee but I have always loved any recipe with the name Coffee Cake in the title. Do you agree? Hot and fresh out of the oven is my favorite, but I won’t ever turn one down either.

Coffee Cake Muffins

This recipe is a cross between my Muffin Recipe and Betty Crocker Coffee Cake Recipe from the 1970’s. It has a lot of love behind it.

This recipe will show you how to make a Jumbo Muffin but I’ll also give you baking directions for regular muffins and mini muffins too!

Coffee Cakes were thought to have originated in Germany. They were more like a sweet bread than a cake. It wasn’t until 1857 that the term “Coffee Cake” became common.

If you’ve made my Fresh Blueberry Muffins or my Sweet and Tart Raspberry Muffins then you know how simple it can be to make a muffin from scratch. This Coffee Cake Muffin Recipe is no different.

How to make Coffee Cake Muffins

How to make Muffins Steps

Preheat Oven to 375 Degrees

In a large glass mixing bowl, I love to use Pyrex, combine dry ingredients. Flour, Sugar, Salt, and Baking Powder. Stir to combine.

Create a well in the dry ingredients and add an Egg, Vanilla, Vegetable Oil and Milk. Then with a fork or whisk beat egg into liquid gradually adding flour mixture until all combined.

In a separate smaller bowl combine Brown Sugar, Cinnamon and flour. Mix to combine. Then add 1 Tbs melted Butter. Mix to combine. Streusel mixture will be crumbly.

Coffee Cake Muffins Steps

Spray Muffin Tin or use Muffin Liners and fill half way. Sprinkle 1 tsp of streusel mixture into batter and top each muffin with more batter. Then sprinkle more streusel on top of each muffin before baking.

Bake at 375 Degrees for 20-24 minutes for large Jumbo Muffins.

Optional Glaze: In a bowl combine Powdered Sugar and 1 Tbs softened butter. With the back of the fork mash butter into sugar to disburse as evenly as possible. Add Vanilla Extract and Milk and mix to combine. Drizzle glaze over warm muffins
