Coffee cake, with its sweet center and crumble topping, make a great dish to serve at a brunch, or bring to a potluck. The only real downside to a coffee cake is serving it. You need a cake server, forks, plates, napkins—a lot for a piece of cake. Which is why this recipe turns coffee cake into muffins.

This is a basic sour cream coffee cake, but if you're feeling creative, add a few blueberries to the batter, or a few bits of orange zest to the streusel. Consider this a blank canvas to the inner handheld morning cake artist that has been lurking inside you.
