My fondest memory of coffee cake dates back to middle school. We’d all line up at the cafeteria during break time and they’d serve us this huge square chunk of the warmest, most fluffy coffee cake I’ve ever had.

Now it’s been a while since I’ve had coffee cake. I don’t make it that often because when I do, well, I tend to eat the entire pan. Yeah, there’s absolutely no self control here.

That’s why I decided to make this in convenient, single-serving, portion-controlled muffins. That way I can eat 1 and send the rest off with Jason to share with his classmates.

Although it’s really hard to stop at yourself at just one muffin, especially since these babies are loaded with a mile-high crumbly topping and a light vanilla glaze. You’ll want to just pick off all the crumbs on top before diving right in!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 12-cup standard muffin tin with paper liners or coat with nonstick spray; set aside.
  • To make the crumb topping, combine sugars, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in melted butter. Add flour and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist. Spread out mixture on parchment paper to dry until ready to use.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
  • In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together milk, canola oil and egg. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist.
  • Scoop the batter evenly into the muffin tray. Sprinkle with reserved crumb topping, using your fingertips to gently press the crumbs into the batter. Place into oven and bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • To make the glaze, combine confectioners’ sugar and milk. Whisk until smooth. If the glaze is too thin, add more confectioners’ sugar as needed.
  • When the muffins are done, cool for 10 minutes and drizzle the glaze on each muffin.
  • Allow glaze to set before serving.
