№ 56 - Coffee Cake Muffins

So anything with cinnamon, coffee flavoring is good for me.   Isn’t that a cute little cupcake stand?  My daughter Valerie gave it to me.  (hugs)  Anyway – these were awesome and it’s no wonder I blow up like a balloon when I bake, because mostly I eat it all.  My husband has NO sweet tooth.

Coffee Cake Muffins
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prepare a muffin pan (either lining with paper liners or using Pam to spray).
  2. In a medium bowl, blend the eggs, sour cream (or milk), vanilla and instant coffee powder.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar and baking powder, cut in the softened butter using a pastry blender or your fingers. 
  4. Add this mixture slowly to the web ingredients, stirring just enough to moisten, but not smooth. 
  5. Spoon half the batter into the prepared pan. Top with 1 tablespoon reserved brown sugar mixture and then with the remaining batter.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the filling ingredients. Sprinkle the tops generously.
  7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan, and cool on a wire rack. Serve warm.
