Maple Glaze Coffee Cake Muffins

Maple Glaze Coffee Cake Muffins

This moist coffee cake muffin is loaded with a mouth watering streusel and finished with a maple cream drizzle. A family favorite, and after baking, you’ll quickly understand why! 

In under an hour you can have gourmet muffins on the table! They are incredibly moist even next day, and there is amazing contract from the bottom up with a tender not overly sweet base, a sweet crumbly topping, and a salted maple glaze. 

A few tips:

– To limit the drip mess, my favorite way to scoop batter into tins is using a 4TB scoop. It’s just the right amount for standard tins! 
– You can exchange the butter in the batter for either oil or applesauce.
– These store great in the freezer. Simply store in an airtight freezer bag. When ready to eat, let it come to room temperature or pop in the microwave for a quick breakfast. 

Happy baking!

Everything you love about coffee cake in muffin form!

I swapped the butter for 1/2 C applesauce, added more flour and eyeballed it till the consistency felt right (about 1/4 C extra).

Used Trader Joe’s maple agave syrup (all I had) and heavy cream in the icing, loaded each with crumble and they were amazing!

Tops were perfectly crisp with a melt in your mouth maple glaze and muffin bottoms were not too sweet with a subtle apple cinnamon flavor (see sub above).
