Coffee Cake Muffins

Nothing like a warm muffin and a good cup of coffee to share with a friend.
I got this recipe from my friend Eileen and it hit the spot just right.

Streusel Topping:

  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  1. Combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon.
  2. Cut in the butter to make coarse crumbs. 
  3.  Add walnuts and mix well. 
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup of sour milk* or buttermilk (*to make sour milk add a teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar to milk and let stand or 5 minutes). 
  1. Mix in all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. 
  2. Cut in the butter to make coarse crumbs. 
  3. Add the sour  milk and beaten egg to the dry mixture and stir until just moistened. Do not over mix. 
  4. Fill greased muffin tins half full. Top with half the streusel. Add remaining batter and top with remaining streusel. 
  5. Bake at 375 for 18 minutes until golden brown or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. 


  1. What a beautiful muffin pan! I would love one like that. Where can I buy one?

    1. Janina, My friend start to buy me a temptations bake ware. Between the two of us we have a nice collection. This is her muffin tin and rolling pin that you see in the bake ground. I will link you to the website, but you can purchase it through the shopping channel as well. I have never seen it in any retail stores.

    2. Thank you Charlotte! I just checked the Shopping Channel and they have this whole set...I will have to order it. Its so pretty! Thanks again.

  2. This looks so yummy, but I am a little confused on Step 4. Do you layer it (batter, streusel, batter, streusel)? Thanks!

    1. yes that is correct. batter, streusel, batter, streusel.

  3. Does this make 6 or 12 muffins, I didn't see any amount listed.

  4. Except for the walnuts, these sound delicious!

  5. I was also intrigued by the muffin pan; thanks for the info of where to get them. I think this may be someone`s birthday present.
