Muffin Monday - Coffee Cake Muffins

This morning's muffin is our third selection from Muffins & More by Jean Pare. Perfect for an unexpected snow day -- it's been coming down all day! Enjoy!

And our version:

Whole Wheat Coffee Cake Muffins
Makes 12 muffins

1.5 c. whole wheat pastry flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. sea salt
1/3 c. organic sugar
1 egg (farm fresh, of course!)
1/4 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. milk (raw if you have it)
1/2 t. real vanilla

Spice Mix
1/2 c. Rapadura sugar
2 T. whole wheat pastry flour
1 t. cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease muffin tin with coconut oil.

2. Combine spice ingredients in a small bowl, set aside.

3. Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

4. In a separate bowl combine softened butter, sugar and egg using an electric mixer; add milk and vanilla, stirring well.

5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring only until moistened - don't over mix your muffins!

6. Fill muffin cups 1/3 full; sprinkle spice mix onto batter.

7. Spoon remaining batter on top of spice mix.

8. Bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly before removing from muffin tin to wire rack.

Bon Appetit!

  1. yum! i am going to have to make mini coffee cakes now. thanks for sharing

  2. Hi! I jumped on this post as soon as I saw it at Mouthwatering Monday...I got this recipe from my Home Economics class in high school thirtieeee..a..yah, we won't go into how long ago it was. Anyway this is one of my all time favorite recipes...I've gotten lazy and gently fold the cinnamon mixture into the batter instead of layering it. I also make it into a coffee cake by baking in a 8 inch round cake pan overtop some canned blueberries, brown sugar and butter like a pineapple upsidedown cake. Yummy! Try it sometime. Hugs P.S. I'm your newest follower.

  3. Welcome to our little corner of the blogosphere! Blessings, Lisa :)

  7. those look delicious! Thanks.

  8. Marie,

    Rapadura sugar is an unrefined, nutrient retaining sweetener made from whole cane sugar. I use it in place of brown sugar in most of my recipes, although many people use it even to replace white sugar. You can read more about it here -



Thanks so much for visiting; your kind thoughts and questions are always welcome. :)
