Cinnamon Streusel Muffins

Sunday morning. Freshly baked muffins, freshly brewed coffee, and reading the newspaper online. You don’t have to make these muffins strictly on Sunday. I would hedge my bets that these muffins would be good wrapped in a paper towel and devoured on the way to work. They might even aid in helping a Monday morning, rushed to the car and to work, feel like a Sunday mid-morning. Ahh.

For this recipe, I used three different mixing bowls, two sticks of butter (almost), and one cup of rolled quick oats (because that’s what I had on hand).

Cinnamon Streusel Muffins
Inspired by: King Arthur Flour

Topping
1/3 c brown sugar
1/2 c rolled oats
1/2 c A-P flour
3 T soft butter

Filling
3 T butter
1/2 c brown sugar
1 1/2 T ground cinnamon

Batter
1/2 c butter, melted
3/4 c milk
2 large eggs
1 3/4 c A-P flour
1/2 c rolled oats
2 T cornstarch
3/4 c granulated sugar
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/4 t ground cloves
1/8 t ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

For topping:: Mix ingredients until crumbly. Set aside.

For filling:: Beat (low speed) butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Pat together with large spoon to bring together. Set aside.

For batter:: Whisk together melted butter, eggs, and milk until combined. In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Add dry mixture to liquid, stirring until combined.

Spray muffin tins with cooking spray. Divide half the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Dollop 2 t of filling into each muffin. Top with remaining batter. Then, sprinkle topping, press in lightly.

Bake muffins for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven. Wait 5 minutes to remove them to a rack. Continue to let them cool.
