Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins

If you’re a coffee lover like me, you probably enjoy having a delicious treat to accompany your cup of joe. That’s where these Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins come in. Despite the name, there’s no actual coffee in coffee cake. It’s a cake meant to be enjoyed alongside coffee, hence the name. So, no need to get mad at me for the lack of coffee in these muffins. I promise, I’m doing it right!

The addition of sour cream to the batter adds a delightful moisture to these muffins. And since we’re making them in muffin form, they make for the perfect sweet treat to start your morning. So, let’s get started!

Making the Streusel Topping

The streusel topping is the star of the show when it comes to coffee cake muffins. It adds a crunchy texture and a burst of flavor that complements the soft and moist muffin perfectly. To make the streusel topping, you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup of cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

Use a pastry cutter to cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles small pebbles or beach sand. Alternatively, you can use two knives to cut the butter into the mixture. Just crisscross them until the butter is evenly incorporated.

Mixing the Batter

Now, let’s move on to the batter. To make the muffin batter, gather the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of softened butter
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda

Using a hand mixer, cream together the softened butter, sour cream, eggs, vanilla extract, and sugars until smooth and creamy. Then, gradually add in the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the batter as it can lead to dense muffins.

Assembling and Baking

Now that our streusel topping and batter are ready, it’s time to assemble the muffins. Preheat your oven and line a muffin tin with muffin liners. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, filling them about 2/3 of the way full. Don’t forget to generously sprinkle each muffin with the streusel topping. About a heaping tablespoon per muffin should do the trick.

Bake the muffins in a 350-degree oven for approximately 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Once baked, remove the muffins from the pan and let them cool completely on a wire rack. Although they are delicious when served warm, cooling them allows the flavors to develop fully.

Enjoying Your Coffee Cake Muffins

Now that your Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins are ready, it’s time to enjoy them! These muffins make for a delightful breakfast treat or a tasty snack any time of the day. Serve them alongside your favorite hot beverage, whether it’s coffee or tea, and savor every bite.
