Cinnamon Roll Muffins

I kind of feel like I am living in the movie, Julie and Julia right now.  I have been trying so many recipes from Chef-In-Training and obviously blogging about them!  This recipe was fantastic.  I am definitely going to try the original recipe one day but, I just had to try this one first.  I was absolutely addicted to the Cinnamon Roll Bread I made a few weeks back and this seemed like a perfect recipe to try.  The crumb topping is divine and the muffin is packed with flavor!
  • 5 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon roll coffee creamer, You can add 1/4 tablespoon cinnamon to regular vanilla creamer.
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons  baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Cinnamon Filling:
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon

Crumb Topping
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup flour
Cream Cheese Glaze
  • 2 tablespoon cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar.
  1. Make crumb topping by combining all ingredients into a medium sized bowl.  Cut together with a fork until its nice and crumbly.
  2. In a small bowl mix all filling ingredients.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Cream together butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Beat in egg,sour cream and creamer until well mixed.
  6. In a separate small bowl mix together flour, powder, soda and salt.
  7. Slowly mix in dry ingredients with wet, until well combined.  Batter will be thick.
  8. Pour enough batter into greased muffin tins to cover the bottom. (I got 8 muffins)
  9. Top each with a generous amount of filling and pour remaining batter on top of each.
  10. Sprinkle with crumb topping and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  11. When muffins have cooled mix all Cream Cheese Glaze ingredients together until smooth.
  12. Add glaze into a Ziploc bag.  Move all the glaze to one side of the bag making a piping bag.  Cut the tip and drizzle muffins.
