For the streusel topping:

  • ¾ cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch salt

For the muffins:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

For the glaze:

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons heavy cream


To make the streusel:

  • Add all of the streusel ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
  • Set aside to dry out as you prepare the muffins.

To make the muffins:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with muffin liners.
  • Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt to a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Make a well in the center.
  • Whisk together the egg, milk, oil, and vanilla in a small bowl. Pour the mixture into the well and stir together with a fork. Do not overmix. The batter should be a bit lumpy.
  • Use a large cookie scoop to scoop the muffin batter into the prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle with the streusel.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
  • Cool for 20 minutes before glazing.

To make the glaze:

  • Whisk together the powdered sugar and cream, adding additional powdered sugar or cream to reach the consistency you prefer.
  • Drizzle over the cooled muffins.
