How to make cinnamon coffee cake muffins

These cinnamon muffins are pretty easy to make – they follow the typical steps to make standard muffins, but have the one extra step of making the crumb topping (more on that below!)

Start by lining your muffin pan with muffin liners and preheating the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Then mix the dry ingredients in one large bowl and whisk the wet ingredients together in another bowl.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together until just combined. 

Fill your prepared muffin pan about ⅔ of the way with the batter.

Now onto the crumb topping!

Cinnamon crumb topping for muffins

To make the crumb topping, you simply combine ⅓ cup each white sugar and brown sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon salt, ½ cup melted butter, and 1½ cups flour. 

Spread out the cinnamon crumb topping on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper (for easier cleanup!). Spreading it out ensures that the crumb topping stays crumbly when you add it to your muffins.

Top the batter of each muffin with crumb topping, gently pressing the crumb topping into the batter so it sticks and sinks in.

Bake the muffins for 15-17 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
