When I was 13, these muffins won a blue ribbon at our state fair. The coffee really enhances the cinnamon flavor, making these tender treats quite delicious.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • 4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons cold butter


  1. In a small bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients. Whisk the egg, milk, butter and espresso powder until espresso powder is dissolved. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.
  2. For topping, combine the flour, sugar and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon over each muffin.
  3. Bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Serve warm.
