When I was younger I would make coffee cake for my family often. Early in the morning I would wake up and start the baking process. I love it. I love that is a not too sweet muffin with the sugar crumble texture on top. As a busy mom I don’t have time in the morning to bake a cake so I converted the recipe to muffins. These coffee cake muffins are quick, easy and our family’s favorite!!Coffee Cake is a savory cake with a sweet crumbly topping. It pairs so perfectly with a nice hot cup of hot cocoa. Because the cake part is more savory than sweet I like to add berries to the batter. It adds a whole other dimension to the cakes. A sweet, juicy tang in a hot, fluffy muffin. My kids love the blueberries too, they’ll eat anything with blueberries in it!
How to Make Coffee Cake Muffins
- Make the batter first. You use Bisquick as the foundation. I love this technique because it makes it come together so fast. Add an egg, milk and a little bit of sugar. We love to add fresh blueberries to the batter!
- Fill in the cupcake liners with the batter.
- Make the crumb topping. add dry ingredients then cut in (cut in means to use two knives and criss cut the butter into the ingredients) three tablespoons of butter. Top the muffins evenly with the crumb toppings making sure there is butter on each top. I center one little chunk of butter in the center if I can.
Bake for 15 minutes!
They’re ready! Hot fluffy coffee cake muffins! Make them and comment how they turned out!
