#MuffinMonday : Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake Muffins

Hello friends!

It’s Monday (duh) which means it’s time for a new marvelous muffin recipe!

Although I have a lot of ideas for new muffins, I knew I wanted to do a classic coffee cake version for quite some time. The first thing I ever baked (in a real oven, EZ Bake doesn’t count heehee) was a Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake from a box mix. This was one of my family’s favorite quick-breads (along with Banana Bread) and I loved whipping it up for them.

It was just enough “from scratch” baking for my young self to handle; though I always had this one issue with the cinnamon swirl center. I am not one for “eyeing” amounts when it comes to baking; you will always find me with a set of measuring cups or spoons because I cannot for the life of me imagine how much 1 tbsp looks like.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
