Coffee Cake Muffins


Always a fan of coffee cake muffins, but tired of paying more than $2.50 every morning for a half-decent one (over $15 per week), I decided to create a recipe for home. It is imperative that you use whole milk and that you carefully fold the ingredients together to have the right consistency for your muffins.

12 muffins


  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 ¼ tablespoons baking powder

  • ¼ tablespoon salt

  • ¾ cup whole milk

  • 2 tablespoons whole milk

  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract

Crumb Topping:

  • 1 ⅞ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 4 ½ tablespoons brown sugar

  • ¾ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, or more to taste

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.

  2. Mix then sift flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.

  3. Mix milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Carefully fold in flour until combined but slightly lumpy. Pour batter into the prepared muffin tins, leaving a little room at the top for muffins to rise.

  4. Combine flour, melted butter, sugar, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and salt for the topping in a bowl; mix until crumbly. Add a generous amount on top of each muffin.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 30 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

For muffins with a more fluffy consistency, use pastry flour instead of all-purpose.
