Scrumptious Coffee Cake Muffins

Recipes / Thursday, May 17th, 2018

If you know me at all, you know that I love love love coffee and everything related to it! Recently, I wanted to make some coffee cake muffins to bring to a small group gathering, so I went on a Pinterest hunt to find the perfect recipe. I found an amazing one, and with some tweaks it became the best.

To get to the original recipe from Damn Delicious, follow this link. The original recipe was really good, but I ended up making these three different times, and I kept tweaking more and more to make the recipe great. By the time I got the result I wanted, I had made changes to the muffin recipe, the crumb topping recipe, and the glaze recipe. After all those changes, it seemed like a new concoction altogether!

Below is my version of these muffins. You’ll have to let me know what you think!
