I hope everyone had a lovely long weekend. Yes I know the week is half way over and I’m behind on my blog. I didn’t get a chance to cook or bake over the weekend, hence the tardiness on my post this week.
Let’s see… Chris and I bought a new dining room set over the weekend —yay! It’s a beautiful distressed piece, which I love and it will be delivered this Friday. Kimi came home from her trip so we spent the afternoon with her. Chatted up with our neighbor regarding the fence we share. Was thinking about redoing it next month. So yes, it was a busy weekend.
Back to food. To all you coffee lovers out there. I know you’ll want to bake a batch of these muffins.
It’s like coffee cake with actual coffee ingredient in it! It’s perfect for those mornings when you need to double-up on your caffeine intake. Coffee and then coffee muffins. Doesn’t it sound good? So go and bake yourself some. You won’t regret it.
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter, softened
- 1/3 cup of dark muscovado sugar
- 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 1 cup of sour cream
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons of instant coffee granules
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup of dark muscovado sugar
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) of unsalted butter, cold and diced
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking cups in the muffin pan.
Using a stand or electric mixer (or mix by hand) cream butter, muscovado and granulated sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla extract and sour cream. Mix until it has a creamy consistency.
In medium bowl whisk together flour, coffee granules, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Slowly add the flour mixture into the egg/sour cream mixture and mix until just moistened. Spoon batter into the lined muffin cups.
Make the streusel topping: In a small bowl combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and butter. Use your fingers to mix until you have a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle generously over the batter.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick/tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool slightly in the pan before transferring them to the cooling rack.

A coffee cake muffin with a coffee flavor sounds wonderful.
I love your bright photos! I made coffee cake a while back after Hurricane Sandy and was thinking I need to make it more often. The topping is the best. I’d love to taste your version with actual coffee in it. It looks great!
Thank you so much Monica! 🙂
Anne, these coffee muffins look great, especially topped with streusel.
Hope you are having a lovely week 🙂
Oh my…these look absolutely divine!! I love baking with coffee anything. I even bought a coffee maker so I could use it for my baking…I don’t like the taste of coffee in a mug. But I love it in baked goods!
Sounds like it was a busy weekend for you guys…I took it off from blogging as well. But oh well, seemed like the internet peeps weren’t really around anyways. At least I wasn’t! (=
You’re so sweet Gloria, thank you! 🙂 Yeah, I did noticed it was kinda of slow due to the long weekend. Everyone was on holiday. Hope you had a lovely one too! xo
Muscovado sugar, coffee, cinnamon…. all great ingredients! Love the topping too.
Coffeecake muffins with the taste of coffee…perfect!
Sorry for the double comment…I kept getting a pop up saying to log in before the comment would go through.
These look delicious! I can get my coffee in my breakfast this way!
I love cinnamon baked goods… these muffins look amazing.
You had me at coffee! These sound delicious.
You said the magic word…coffee. I love it in any form. I have never seen a muffin like this with coffee added to it, so you know I’m going to have to make them! Thanks for sharing.
Sometimes it’s nice to have weekends without baking/cooking/blogging etc. And these muffins definitely make up for lost time 🙂
I think my morning will be smooth with a cup of coffee and this coffee streusel muffins! I need all the caffeine power to keep up with my kids. 😉 Looks delish!
Coffee and muffins united? It can’t get any better:)
Thanks for a delicious recipe Anne!
I’m glad you mentioned that these coffee streusel muffins actually do have coffee in them… I was never a fan of “coffee” cakes because I always expected coffee in them but it wasn’t so…These look scrumptious and lovely! Beautiful Anne!
Looks great, I want one for breakfast! is there any replacement I could try for dark muscovado sugar? Not sure if the grocery stores here carry that.
You can replace it with brown sugar. Dark brown sugar if you can get it.
Can never go wrong with coffee and streusel deliciousness!!
Why doesn’t more “coffee cake” have actual coffee in it! This seems like such a logical addition, Anne. And that streusel is calling my name – gorgeous photos, as always!
I think I need double caffeine every morning! Your muffins look incredible!!
congrats on the new dining set! I’ve always wished that coffee cake actually tasted it a bit like coffee..loving these muffins!
Gorgeous muffins! Anything with coffee and streusel topping has to be good!
Ooh I do love a good coffee cake and I’m sure it’s even better in muffin form with that beautifully crumbly topping .Great recipe Anne!
Is there ever a day in your house where something isn’t baking in the oven and generating wonderful smells? These look great as do all the others…
The flavor of a good coffee cake is unbeatable, especially with the streusel on top! Wonderful in muffin form!
These look good! Going to try them this weekend…….
Thanks Larry! Hope you’ll enjoy. 🙂
