Crumb Cake Muffin Tops
Now this is a reason to get out of bed in the morning. These individual cakes are moist and buttery and topped with pebbly brown sugar-cinnamon crumbs.
Notes:Muffin top pans differ depending on the brand. I used a muffin top pan that has six cups, each cup with a volume of 5 tablespoons. The batter in this recipe made exactly two batches, or 12 muffin tops total. Though I haven't tested it, you should be able to bake this batter in a standard size 12 cup muffin pan.
