I did double up the streusel mixture and these muffins were bursting with flavor and so delicious that I made up another batch to freeze to bring to work. These are now a new favorite and will be made more often then I should :)
Let's not let this recipe fall through the cracks. They were awesome!
We loved these muffins. Great way to have coffe cake with your coffee on the go. We also doubled up on the streusel mixture. We made this with fat free sour cream and still were really good!! We will make these again. Thanks
