Making Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins

Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins are like a bakery muffin, with a beautiful crumb topping.  I start by making the crumb topping from butter, sugar, flour, and cinnamon.  While that rests, I whip up the rest of the muffin.  It’s a pretty standard base of flour, baking powder and soda, salt, and the like.  But then you add in a cup of sour cream.  This gives the cake portion a tangy flavor and a tender crumb that will keep you coming back for more.  The original recipe I have didn’t have any other flavoring but vanilla in the muffin portion.  I changed that with a bit of cinnamon in the batter to add an extra boost.  It was perfection!

Freezing Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins for Later

It might be tempting to eat all of your Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins at once.  They are certainly delicious enough to.  But if you don’t want to eat them all in one sitting, or you want to make up a couple of batches to save some for later, you are in luck!  Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins freeze well and thaw to be just like fresh made.  I tend to make them up for trips such as camping trips.  They are a great grab and go breakfast muffin, and they travel in the cooler frozen.  So use up that sour cream hiding in the fridge with a batch of Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins and freeze the leftovers!
