How to make Coffee Cake Muffins?

The ultra moist and fluffy texture of coffee cake muffins is undoubtedly the perfect beginning of the day. Loaded with a flavorful crumbly topping, these coffee muffins are always a hit.

Coffee Cake Muffins Before you start making the batter, I will give valuable advice: do not mix the composition too much. If mixing the batter too much, the gluten is activating, and after baking, instead of fluffy and moist muffins, we will get some hard balls.

Preheat the oven to 375 °F.

First, we will make the crumb topping. Melt the butter. Combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Pour over the melted butter and mix just until combined. Set aside. By the time it will be ready to use, it will become more crumbly.

Coffee Cake Muffins Once you have all ingredients at room temperature, start mixing the batter. For the beginning, swift the flour and combine it with baking powder and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

In a separate mixing bowl, beat together soft unsalted butter with sugar until fluffy. Cut the vanilla bean in half, scrape seeds with a sharp knife and send them to the butter mixture. Crack the eggs and spoon the yogurt to the mixture too. Bind all ingredients together. Now gently add the flour mixture and bring it all together. Mix lightly, with ample movements.

Coffee Cake Muffins Line a muffin tin with paper liners. Spoon the dough into prepared muffin cups, evenly dividing it among about 12 wells. Scatter the crumbs topping over the muffins. Sprinkle with some chocolate chips if desired.

Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes, or until the toothpick test comes out clean. After removing muffins from the oven, cool them on a cooling rack.

How to store Coffee Cake Muffins?

Coffee Cake Muffins To store Coffee cake muffins without drying them out, I would recommend you use an air-tight container. But before you transfer them in it, make sure muffins cooled completely. You can keep them either at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Also, these muffins are freezer friendly. So, transfer them to a freezer-safe storage container or freezer food bag and store for up to 3 months.

Tips:

Coffee Cake Muffins If you still do not have a muffin tin, I strongly recommend you buy one. A silicone mold is a good option as it is unnecessary to grease it or use any paper lines. You will use it for years and years, and you will be able to make any muffin recipes, even those with liquid batter such as cheesecake muffins.

I hope you will give these Coffee Cake Muffins a try and like them as much as I do!
