Coffee Cake Muffins by Ratherbeswimmin'



  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rolled oat
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. 1
    For topping: Add brown sugar, rolled oats, flour, walnuts, cinnamon and butter in a food processor (put the butter in last so it is on top).

  2. 2
    Pulse a few times until the mixture is coarse and crumbly (This can also be done by hand or with a pastry blender); set topping aside.

  3. 3
    Spray muffin pan with non-stick spray.

  4. 4
    In a bowl, whisk the buttermilk and eggs together.

  5. 5
    Add the melted butter and stir until well blended.

  6. 6
    In another bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.

  7. 7
    Pour the buttermilk/butter mixture over the flour mixture, stirring just until moistened.

  8. 8
    Scoop 1/4 cup of batter into prepared muffin cups (will be almost full).

  9. 9
    Sprinkle evenly with the topping, covering the top of each muffin completely.

  10. 10
    Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes, or until a pick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean, with a few moist crumbs attached.

  11. 11
    Cool for 3 minutes and turn out on cooling rack.


  1. This recipe is a keeper! I am SO making this for my brood. And your blog is great, too. I love your format. I am a homeschool mom of 11, several grown, 7 still at home. I love seeing what homeschoolers have to say and what kind of difference it's made in their worldview. I look forward to spending more time here soon :)

  2. Wow!!!! I want to make this for my dad tomorrow morning. -I'll have to check on my butter supply. Thank you for the recipe!!! <3
