Coffee Kuchen

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by nadia murray

This recipe is one that my mom made while I was growing up and was one of my favorites. It comes from a little recipe booklet titled "Fun with Coffee" from the 1950's. I love coffee and these are basically coffee flavored crumb cakes.

Made for Fall PAC 2008 - Tasty, tender muffins with only a slight coffee flavor - the cinnamon in the crumb topping made the house smell so good while they baked! Although the recipe says it makes 12 muffins, I got 18 regular sized muffins filled 2/3 full, and they baked in 25 minutes. NOTE: I assumed the recipe should read 1/2 cup vegetable shortening and that is what I used!
