COFFEE CAKE MUFFINS

















I love coffee cake and when I stumbled upon this recipe I had to try it.  It's not much of a twist on coffee cake except that it's made into a muffin.  They tasted good but I still like the traditional coffee cake a little better.  Some of the topping that the recipe called for fell off during the baking process but, again, the taste was good and they were moist like a coffee cake.  If desired, you could just make the recipe as a traditional coffee cake by pouring the batter into a rectangle cake pan.
