Cinnamon Crunch Muffin Cake

Coffee cake and cereal may seem like an unlikely combination, but we’re hoping this recipe will convince you. Crunchy cinnamon-laced streusel is one of the best parts of a good coffee cake, so to add additional texture and even more cinnamon flavor to the topping, we’ve added cinnamon square cereal into the mix. You can substitute any type of cinnamon cereal, just make sure it is evenly crushed. For this recipe we used Cinnamon Toast Crunch with great success.

  • ½ tsp kosher salt 
  • 1 stick (8 tbsp) unsalted butter, softened
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions

1) In a medium bowl, whisk together ¼ cup light brown sugar, ⅔ cup all purpose flour, 1 pinch kosher salt, and ½ tsp ground cinnamon. Add 4 tbsp softened butter and work into the flour mixture until no dry flour remains. Add the crushed cinnamon square cereal, stirring to incorporate.

4) With the mixer running, add the egg and beat until incorporated. Add 1 cup sour cream and 1 tsp vanilla and continue to beat until combined, scraping down the bowl as needed. Turn the mixer off and add the flour mixture. Pulse the mixture a few times to incorporate and then mix on low speed until no dry flour remains.
