What is a Coffee Cake?

Traditionally, coffee cake is a type of cake that has a strong coffee flavor and is often served with coffee. However, over the years, many different variations have popped up of the coffee cake. You will find a lot of versions below in the other blogger recipes.

But, let's get back to these bakery-style coffee cake muffins.

These bakery-style muffins are a classic recipe with a cinnamon sugar layer and a delicious streusel on the top of each muffin.

I even made my own bakery-style cupcake holders out of parchment paper and they turned out great. Of course, if you do not want to make your own, you can just buy some. I like the brown parchment paper ones I found here.

Here's What You Need To Make These Muffins

Ingredients:

  • all-purpose flour
  • light brown sugar
  • baking powder
  • cinnamon
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • milk
  • vanilla extract
  • vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • granulated sugar
  • unsalted butter

the crumb topping

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and flour. Add melted butter and stir in until it all comes together. Fluff with a fork to make a mixture that resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

the muffins

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, oil and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir it all together with a wooden spoon, just until combined.

Scoop the batter into the muffin tin. It should fill each cup about 3/4 full.

Sprinkle the topping on top of the batter of each muffin.

Bake

Bake the muffins until the toothpick inserted into each muffin comes out clean. It may take 20 minutes.
