Cinnamon-Sugar Crusted Coffee Cake Muffins

Yield: 12 Muffins

Serving Size: 1 Muffin

Calories per serving: 220

Fat per serving: 9.2 g

These taste just like an old-fashioned doughnut with cinnamon and sugar. Be prepared to make more immediately because they'll be gone in no time. .

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • For the Cinnamon Sugar Topping:
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350º F. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
  2. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the oil, sugar, egg and milk.
  3. Add the flour mixture to the oil and milk mixture and stir just until combined.
  4. Coat a standard 12-cup muffin pan well with nonstick cooking spray and divide the batter evenly among the cups.
  5. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of one muffin comes out clean.
  6. Run a knife around the sides of each of the muffins and shake them out of the pan while still hot. Place them on a wire rack while you assemble your toppings.
  7. In a small, shallow bowl, melt the butter.
  8. In another small, shallow bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  9. Dip each muffin first in the butter, then into the cinnamon-sugar, swirling to coat all sides. Let cool for a few minutes on a wire rack so that the butter and sugar can harden slightly before serving.

So I suppose I shouldn’t have said to my own “Nana”, “Grandma, you’re not fat, you’re just fluffy!” Err, yeah

I love a good ol’ fashion donut — this reminds me of going to the fair. I think if I scratch my computer screen, I might be able to smell them!

Haha, thank God our grandmothers didn’t disown us on the spot! And you’re right- they’re a lot like the kind of old-fashioned donuts you find at a country fair!

Carolyn@lovinlosing.com- you could substitute the white sugar for light brown sugar, natural sugar, or even the stevia crystals which is all a plant. For the butter, use coconut oil or agave nectar for the sweet taste! You won’t miss the fatty stuff.

Amy @ Second City Randomness August 2, 2010 at 10:22 am

Those look soooo good! Reminds me of when I was little- when we had days off of school in the winter for bad weather, it was a baking day and we’d make donuts that looked eerily similar… yet these are probably a bit healthier for you (being as how they’re not fried…)

Hey Sue,

You know, I honestly have no idea and I’m wondering if it was just an error in my preparation that made them pop up like that in the middle. I wish I could replicate it every time!

These. Are. Too. Cute. Almost too cute — but note that I said almost. I would never say no to anything in muffin shape. I’m not a huge donut person but in muffin form; that’s a whole different ball game. And the cinnamon sugar — I love how inviting it is. It says “look how nice my outside is — but wait! — my insides are nice too.”

I totally think you could have gotten away with a few “noms”, “nummys”, and pictures in this post. :)

I saw this recipe and tried it out immediately. I love it when I have every single ingredient needed!
Anyway, the muffins turned out to be pretty good.. my only problem was that i doubled the recipe and it ended up being a little too eggy for my taste.
Besides that, delicious!

wheres the coffee part in the coffee-cinnamon cupcake? Does it taste like coffee on its own?

Reply

Can You Stay for Dinner January 19, 2011 at 4:29 pm

Hey Nadia! You’re right- there isn’t any coffee in the recipe, but I guess I’m referring simply to the traditional coffeecake flavor that these mock- that slightly nutty, deep and roasted flavor. Many coffeecake recipes I’ve come across don’t even call for coffee. Though, on second thought, adding coffee or espresso powder could be delicious!

Reply

Lydia June 15, 2012 at 5:27 pm

I think the coffee refers to the coffee you drink while enjoying the cake, muffin, or donut. Wish I had a muffine right now!!!!

Hello, please consider using smaller images.

Reading a single recipe blows my browser’s memory usage up about one fourth of my system’s total installed memory.

This is because you do not use any thumbnails on the page.

So, the whole 10 megapixel monster is always downloaded for each and every picture.

It completely destroys my girlfriend’s experience with your site. She says she likes it a lot, but just can’t use it due to this.

thirdly, you are a HUGE inspiration! HUGE. HOOOGE. and i’m giving you a mental hug over wifi right now. *wifi huuug* i’m on my journey to lose 100+ lbs at 25 and i’m scared as hell but knowing that you struggled but GOT there is an amazing inspiration. you’re amazing

Thank you for posting this!!!! About 10 years ago I belonged to a recipe club that like once a month I would get sent 6 recipe cards and this was one of the cards I had, I made this so much that I could have made it by memory and in fact did start making it from memory and I thought I had put the card away and didn’t think about it again, so came the time that I stopped making it for a while and realized that I had forgot a few things that were in the recipe so I went to find the card to make this one Sunday morning and couldn’t find it. COMPLETELY freaked out and tore my entire kitchen apart and then proceeded to tear the rest of the house apart when I couldn’t find it in the kitchen. Nope….didn’t work. Well crap guess that’s a recipe I will have to cry about not having any more. After a few years I decided to try and find it on the internet. Found ones that were close but were definitely not the right ones. So I decided to forget about it. Then this morning about 7 years(I know it’s been that long because my oldest is 6 and I’ve been missing it since before he was born) after losing the recipe I decided well what the heck I should try and find it. And the first link I click on is yours and………I FOUND IT!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU…..*runs to get pen and paper so I never lose the recipe again.* Making this in T- 3 minutes, as soon as I hit enter on the post comment button and put my laptop down. ;)

We call these Dirt Bombs in our house. I’m not sure where that name comes from, and it certainly doesn’t do these heavenly morsels justice. They are such a subtly decadent and wonderful treat that I have to give some away when I make them. I just can’t be held responsible!

Anyway, my mother-in-law turned me on to your blog this week and I think I’ve read almost every post. I went to school in Amherst’s neighboring town of south hadley, so I feel like we should naturally be friends. On a more important level, I’m a think-about-cooking-baking-and-eating-almost-every-minute-of-the-day kind of girl, too, so based on that we should probably be sisters. Your writing has great voice, and your story comes alive on the page errr…screen. I look forward to reading it every day, and can’t wait to see what you’ll make next. Keep rocking the blog, sister. You’ve found your niche!

These were great! I ate three the first day and kept wanting more. A donut? Not really. Great cinnamonny muffin, with a great crumb. Not too light, not too dense. I will be making these again

Wonderful recipe! How did you get the “bump” on top of the muffins?

Thanks. :)

Super fab! I did make some alterations nothing serious but I am TRYING to watch what I eat so I did not use whole milk I used 1/2%, I cut the sugar in the muffins by 1/4cup, I added vanilla, and cut the butter to dip them in by about 2tablespoons. If you just lightly dip the top and bottom in the butter while they are hot the sugar sticks to it everywhere. These were great! My husband loved it and we agreed it was like christmas morning.

I made a double batch of these muffins on Wednesday. My sons and their friends loved them. Today is Sunday, and my second double batch is in the oven now. I love a recipe that is quick, easy, and requires only on-hand ingredients. I think I’ll make these again for my Halloween open house. Thanks!

My goodness this looks fantastic. We are going to make this for our staff. Of course we will use our Ceylon Cinnamon Sugar for this experiment plus some freshly ground Ceylon Cinnamon Sticks. Will post pictures in our blog in a few weeks. But don’t if we can match this level of baking skill though. And photography was lovely. Thanks for sharing.

I’ve made this many times, and they always turn out wonderful. They are light and sugary and just perfect. Of course the butter helps too. However I just finished a batch-and they came out flat. There was absolutely no round top to them at all. Does anyone have an idea as to why this happened? Could it be a problem with the stove or possibly not measuring setting correctly? I really do love these though!

Just thought I’d drop by and let you know these are one of my favorite “Go To” muffins for brunches and breakfast parties. I made a batch tonight with 1/2 C pumpkin and 1/4 C milk to replace the 3/4 C milk, and holy moly….

I literally just made these and scarfed 3 muffins down. My kids are currently gobbling them up. This was so incredibly easy to make. There’s a lot of sugar so this will be a recipe I use for special occasions. But wow, these are just so delicious!! Moist sugary cinnamony goodness! Thanks for the recipe! My kids thank you too!

I picked up a heart-shaped silicone muffin pan at Target a week or two ago, with the intent of trying to be that Mom Who Sometimes Does Cute Things On Holidays. (The “sometimes” is there to keep expectations low.) These look tasty, and simple enough to fit the bill for tomorrow morning. Ready… set… (review tomorrow)!

Lynn February 14, 2013 at 12:30 pm

… Oh. My. Yumminess. Strangely, I like them better cold. Something about the texture, and the crunch from the sugar and cinnamon… These could be fun to tinker with, too – I saw someone else commented about using pumpkin, which sounds delish. I was thinking cinnamon applesauce might be fun, too.

Saw this recipe this morning and looking at the pictures I HAD to make them! Easiest recipe with every day ingredients. Absolutely scrumptious warm out of the oven. Or microwave for 15 seconds any leftovers if there are any.

You can absolutely just heat them a little before eating, if you want to make them ahead of time!

My teenage daughter had friends spending the night, so I made these for brunch along with fruit salad and yogurt. They were a major hit! I made them in mini muffin tins and they came out perfectly sized, just like donut holes. I think if they were bigger, I would worry about the cinnamon sugar making a mess, but this way they are a nice two-bite treat. Thanks for the great recipe!

Elizabeth July 10, 2014 at 1:50 pm

I made these last week and both my husband and my six year old went crazy for them. They are delicious! I wouldn’t say they’re like a donut necessarily, they’re much more a muffin. They were to die for – thank you!!
