  • Author: Rebecca Blackwell
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: Between 48-60 mini-muffins

Description

These cinnamon streusel mini-muffins, covered in buttery streusel and vanilla almond glaze prove that the best things come in small packages.


Ingredients

FOR THE STREUSEL:

  • ¾ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 5 tbsp butter, melted

FOR THE MUFFINS:

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten slightly with a fork
  • 1¼ cups buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted

FOR THE GLAZE:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract (or 1 more teaspoon of vanilla extract)

Instructions

MAKE THE STREUSEL:

  1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Pour in the melted butter and mix with your hands until all the dry ingredients are moistened. Cover, and set aside.

BAKE THE MUFFINS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a mini-muffin pan with mini-muffin paper liners, or spray the pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Dump the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and both sugars into a medium size bowl and mix with a wire whisk to combine.
  3. With a fork, whisk the buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla together to combine. Add to the dry ingredients along with the melted butter. Mix with a wire whisk for about 20 seconds, until mostly combined; it's ok if you have a few lumps.
  4. Add a heaping tsp of batter to each muffin cup (the batter should come almost to the top of the cups) and top each with a generous crumbles of streusel. Gently press the streusel into the batter just to help it stick as the muffins rise.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the muffins comes out clean - or with just a few crumbs clinging to it.
  6. Let cool on a wire rack while mixing up the glaze.

MAKE THE GLAZE:

  1. Whisk together all the glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over the tops of mini-muffins.
