Coffee cake is a classic pastry served in the morning alongside a warm cup of coffee. I mean, who doesn’t want to eat cake for breakfast?

Ingredients for coffee cake muffins

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line your muffin tin with paper liners and set aside.

To make the muffin batter, in a large mixing bowl combine the flour, light brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and set aside.

Dry ingredients for muffins in a glass bowl

In a medium bowl, or stand mixer, whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, a teaspoon vanilla extract, and eggs. Then combine the wet ingredients in the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until the batter is smooth.

Batter for muffins in a glass bowl

Fill each of the prepared muffin cups up ⅔ of the way with batter. This will make about 14-18 muffins in total.

Adding crumble to the top of the coffee cake muffin tins

For the last ⅓ of the muffin tin add in the prepared crumble topping and push it into the muffin batter so that it sticks to the wet batter and will bake properly.
