    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 :)

    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

    I just finished making these and the taste is good but the one I tried to take out of the muffin tin fell apart the other 5 I turned upside down onto a rack were perfect. I did add one "a tiny" egg more they are farm eggs so they were both very tiny and a little bit more sugar. My batter was bread doughy and did not spread at all. I think next time I will add the pecan mixture to the batter instead and use a jumbo egg and just save about a tablespoon of the pecan mixture for the tops of the muffins. I got 6 jumbo muffins which I baked at 350 for 40 minutes in my convection oven they came out perfect a light golden brown! For the road with coffee for my DH!
