Recipe: Cowboy Coffe Cake Muffins

My mom used to make this recipe in the form of a true coffee cake on Sunday mornings. I like the muffins just as well, and have always loved the streusel topping the best.

Streusel Topping

In a bowl add:
3 TBL flour
3 TBL brown sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Stir ingredients together.  Cut in 2 TBL of butter until the mixture looks like crumbs.

Stir in 3 TBL chopped nuts of choice (I used walnuts).

Set aside.

In another bowl combine:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt

Cut in 1/4 cup butter until mixture looks like crumbs.

Combine 1 beaten egg to 1/2 cup of buttermilk and add to the dry mixture, stirring until the batter is well mixed.  It may still be lumpy.

Spoon the batter into prepared muffin cups, but do not overfill. Top with the streusel topping. Bake in the oven at 400° F for 15 minutes or until done. Cool on a baking rack. Serve warm.
