Course: Breakfast, Dessert



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar packed
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted


  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon


  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons cream if using milk, use 1 tablespoon


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line muffin tin with paper liners, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Make a well in the center and set aside.
  • In a smaller bowl, or large measuring cup, whisk milk, butter, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Pour wet mixture into the dry bowl and mix (with a hand blender or by hand) until you have a thick but smooth batter.
  • For the crumb topping, stir together the flour, sugars, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add the melted butter and stir with a fork until the mixture is crumbly and resembles wet sand.
  • For the cinnamon swirl, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Begin to assemble the batter inside the lined muffin tin by scooping 2 tablespoons of batter into each muffin cavity. Place a teaspoon of cinnamon sugar mixture on top, give it a quick swirl, and top with more muffin batter, filling the tin 3/4 to the top.
  • Sprinkle about a heaping tablespoon of crumb topping on top of each muffin top, covering the tops.
  • Bake muffins for 15-17 minutes until the crumbly tops are golden and when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool down to room temperature in the pan prior to transferring them to a wire rack to glaze.
  • Once cooled, drizzle a little glaze over cooled muffins.
