Cinnamon Crumb Muffins

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.

    I thought these muffins were great. I did add a little more cinnamon and a bit of freshly grated nutmeg. I also added a ripe banana because I needed to use it. I doubled the recipe.It made 15 muffins. My son had 3 for breakfast!

    I loved this recipe! I added some brown sugar to the crumble, and after I baked them and let them cool I added a vanilla glaze which made the muffin into more of a desert. I also added a light topping of coffee granules to the glaze. 'Twas delicious!
