Muffin Monday: Coffee Cake Muffins

Muffins. Frequent readers of this blog will know about my obsession with these baked goods and my constant search for killer recipes to add to my collection. So when I discovered Baker Street had started an initiative where a group of talented and just plain ol’ lovely foodies whip up a different muffin recipe each week and share the results, I was a little excited. Finally – I had found my people!

This week’s recipe comes from Martha Stewart, and is a real treat that combines the flavour profile of coffee cake in the form of a muffin making it perfect for special occasion brunches. The recipe itself is straightforward and comes together quickly, resulting in an incredibly moist cake-like batter with a cinnamon spiced streusel topping.

Both my five year-old and myself had a blast whipping up these muffins! We used half the batter to create large muffins (with a secret layer of streusel in the middle) as well as mini muffins that were the perfect size for an important afternoon tea party.

To be honest, I preferred the mini versions of these muffins. They were the perfect snack size bite that reminded me of those famous mini doughnuts. Seriously – what’s not to love?!
