These coffee cake muffins are super moist and full of cinnamon coffee cake flavor. Topped with a delicious cinnamon sugar streusel!


  • scant 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 stick butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (more to taste)
  • 1/2 stick cold butter, cut into small pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, cream the butter, sour cream or yogurt, and vanilla. Whisk the egg into the mixture; add the sugar and mix until well combined.
  3. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until just moistened.
  4. For the struesel, combine the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and butter in a small bowl. Cut the butter into the sugar and flour until coarse crumbs form. You can also use a food processor for this.
  5. Spoon the batter into buttered and floured jumbo muffin tins, filling about 1/3 of the way. Sprinkle a heaping tablespoon of crumbs (or more for a thicker struesel layer in the middle) on top of the batter. Cover with more batter until 3/4 of the way full and sprinkle struesel crumbs over the top of each muffin. Bake for 15+ minutes, depending on the size of your muffin tins.
