Coffee Cake Muffins

The traditional coffee cake gets turned into muffins with a crumb topping.

Coffee Cake Muffins: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

These muffins taste just like a piece of coffee cake but in a convenient muffin form. Plus they have a a lot of crumb topping piled on top. I am not exaggerating when I say a lot, there really is a lot of crumb topping. But that is okay because it is delicious. If you do not want as much crumb topping you can reduce the recipe to not make so much topping.
